Visions International Ministries

Visions International Ministries is a Non-Profit Organization that was formed specifically to help displaced families in South Florida. My husband Ralston Phillips and I (Michelle Richards-Phillips) are very involved in the Real Estate Industry and have seen where numerous families have lost their homes to foreclosure. Visions Ministries endeavor to assist the homeless. We have embarked on a series of Gospel events. These have included concerts and singing competitions. We have had the opportunity to host Stellar Award and Sunday Best winner Crystal Aiken, and world renowned Carlene Davis to name a few. Proceeds from previous events have been donated to “The Coalition To End Homelessness In Broward County.
