CENTREVILLE — Leanne Rhodes always possessed a heart that yearned to give back to the community. Knowing the experience and stigma that comes from being disadvantaged, Rhodes started her nonprofit Tides of Grace Inc. to help break the cycle of poverty not just for her family, but for other families in the area who are struggling to make ends meet.

“When I was younger, there were a lot of times we didn’t have much money and we needed to use the resources in the community — whether it was a food bank, hand-me-downs, or free services — and I remember just thinking like ‘man, what if we didn’t have these resources growing up. I don’t know where we would have been,’” she said.
