For several years our church acquired food from the West Ohio Food Bank to distribute to those in need in our community. Six months of the year, on a Saturday morning, we transformed our fellowship hall using long folding tables to help create a line/path for the crowd which formed. I was often placed at a special section of this length of tables. By the time folks reached me, they may have been waiting nearly an hour, but I tried to add a bit of cheer by re-welcoming them to the food pantry. My cheeriness was aided by personal items we hoped would be a blessing to their recipients.
We are very proud to announce that our revamped Education Program launched at the beginning of August. Local agencies and organizations that specialize in educating the general public on topics such as workforce development, personal hygiene and health, and spiritual growth have partnered with us exclusively. Residents participating in the Mission’s reSTART program are required to attend at least five classes a week to assist in their journey out of homelessness. We hope
to meet the needs of our residents in a way that will enrich their lives and promote personal growth while also providing basic life skills necessary for daily tasks.
