October has continued to bring remarkable growth for us here at the Favor House! We have welcomed Lisa Waldron onto our Board of Directors. Lisa comes to us with years of experience in corrections and leadership on other boards and we are truly blessed to have her on our team!
As always, with our rapid growth, comes more need for your support! We are currently in need of new or slightly used work clothes and winter boots, deep freezers, bunk beds and house hold items (toiletries, linens, pillows, cleaning supplies).
We could not accomplish any of this without all of your support. Thank you for your generosity in giving!
Not only has the funding from our Scholarship Program been able to allow one man to come into our program, begin his recovery journey and since then obtain employment, but it has GROWN! We are proud to say that we now have the funds to be able to help at least two other residents who may not otherwise be able to get the help that they need! For those who don’t know, residents who are allotted funds from the Scholarship Fund enter the program and upon obtaining employment they repay the fund for the next resident who may need it! What a wonderful example of paying it forward!
All of our residents were up bright and early on Sunday, Oct. 30th to help set up the Fall Festival event held at Grace Fellowship Church! They helped set up inflatables and other activities and we want to send a special thank you to Grace Fellowship for providing them all with a delicious hot breakfast! If you or anyone you know needs volunteers for an event this upcoming season please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We are continually looking for ways to give back!
Beginning in May of this year, we made some changes to our program which included us providing all of our residents with 3 meals a day! Of course, taking on cooking for so many has come with its own obstacles, but with the help of planning and The Food Bank of North East Georgia we are proud to say that we have served over 8,000 meals so far!
We are looking forward to see what God does next month! We are so blessed and excited to be on this journey with all of you!
