Visions of Eagles held its 2nd annual celebratory breakfast Friday morning and heard from five Nazareth area residents who received help from the homegrown, non-profit.
The facts warranted applause: But it wasn’t those facts -- those numbers -- that drew the most impact during the homegrown, not-for-profit organization’s celebratory breakfast Friday morning at the Hampton Inn in Lower Nazareth Township.

The homegrown, not-for-profit corporation, established in October 2008, has assisted 50 Nazareth area individuals and families so far.
It helps with the simple fixes: a new set of tires, a new house window that blew out or pellets for a stove. But it also helps with the big fixes: furnishing an apartment while a Lower Nazareth Township family rebuilds its fire-ravaged home and paying to bring a doctor from Philadelphia to Lower Nazareth to help an autistic boy learn how to eat. The small and big fixes are all bandaged by a local foundation, Visions of Eagles. The homegrown, not-for-profit corporation was established in October 2008 and operates as a public charity, according to Tom Fehnel, president of its board of directors.
