|First Graduates from Transitional Housing 2010|
The "Getting Ahead" classes are scheduled to begin in early February. This is an incredible curriculum that is designed to equip the adult residents with the basic life and social skills necessary to survive and thrive on their own. In support of these classes we are looking to implement two new programs.
One is a Lawn Care Service. This Vision Onward sponsored business will employee residents that are struggling to find jobs and in the process teach them necessary skills that will aid them in finding employment that pays a life sustaining wage. To be able to get this small business off the ground by Spring, we are in need of push mowers, weed eaters, and leaf blowers that are in good working condition. If you have any of these supplies that you would like to donate, please call us at 918-766-3801.
Second is the development of Case Management Teams. These teams will be comprised of 2 to 3 people and each team will be assigned to certain apartments. The team will be responsible for meeting with their residents on a routine bases to discuss how things are going, talk about the goals each resident will be setting during their class time, advise on financial decisions, and become a community advocate when needed. What an awesome opportunity to surround these families with the love of Christ! If this is something you are interested in learning more about or you feel God nudging you to get involved, please call us at 918-766-3801
