How It All Began

Jackie Holland’s vision is to reach out to hurting people from all walks of life. She knows first-hand the pain of abuse. Married at 15, Jackie soon experienced the pain of domestic violence.


Her husband beat her regularly during their 4 years of marriage. She finally found the courage to leave him but a lack of healing in her own life led her right into another abusive marriage. Physical, mental and verbal abuse only continued. Jackie wed 3 more abusive husbands. She came to realize that a man was not the solution to her problems.


Step by step, Jackie turned her back on her old life and her life turned around. Father’s Day 1987 she found that good food was being discarded by local grocery stores.

Jackie began by personally crawling into the dumpster behind the grocery stores to retrieve the valuable food and distributing it to needy people living in the immediate area. This humble act became the Care Ministry at Restoration Church, Euless, Texas which dispensed food to hundreds of hungry people every week.


Jackie served, counseled, and cried with literally thousands of hurting people over the years. She had to walk through her own healing process alone, with no support and she is burdened by the thought of another woman suffering alone, feeling abandoned, rejected, and used up. As a result of her experiences and her commitment to the vision, God placed within her to minister to hurting people from all walks of life – body, soul, and spirit. It was then in 1991 that Jackie founded Whosoever Will Outreach Ministries.

Every day we receive calls from hurting women, women who need a healing touch, who have lost loved ones, who need encouragement, comfort and hope. Many are in difficult relationships, depressed, addicted to drugs or alcohol. Some work in the sex industry who want to quit their lifestyle but find it difficult because of the money they make and yet, they want to be free.


Whatever the reason or circumstance we want to reach out to hurting women from all walks of life and every age group and meet their needs by being a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, an arm to lean on a helping hand and to assist women who would like to change their lives to become healthy, positive, and constructive members of our society personally and professionally.


This requires many women with varied talents working together to strengthen, encourage and build up hurting women as they walk through the healing process towards their recovery and God-given destiny.


One young Christian woman from India called one day sobbing so incoherently it took some time to find out why she was calling. As she poured out her heart she shared that she was in an arranged marriage with a man who although not physically abusive forbid her to attend church. She was so miserable and depressed without Christian fellowship she wanted to end her life. A volunteer was able to pray for her and her husband until peace came and offered to be available when she needed a Christian friend and prayer.


A young mother of three called very distraughtly. Her twelve-year marriage ended in divorce. She lost her job. Following her divorce, she engaged in a two-year illicit relationship which ended with her being hospitalized and placed under psychiatric care for an emotional breakdown.


She was in despair when she called. She felt she had no hope and nothing to look forward to since she had failed at everything. The volunteer invited her to the Women’s Support Group and the Food Outreach at the Care Ministry and was able to minister to her, pray for her and lead her to the Lord-which totally changed her life.
