Oh The Blessings..
Favor House has had so much going on this past month and we have much more to come in September! We were so blessed by the outpouring of love that was shown to us and our residents by Grace Fellowship Church. We enjoyed games, some good food and time spent with friends and family. Coming up, we are going on a tubing trip to Helen, Ga, participating in Recovery Fest and Pastor Bryan Townsend of New Haven Baptist Church will be starting a weekly Bible study with all of our residents. We have also become a preferred provider for the Veterans Courts in Athens. It is our hope that we will be of service to those that have served our country. Penfield Christian Homes has also accepted us as one of the long-term programs for residents coming out of their short–term program.
The Favor House was recently approved as an agency shopper at The North East Food Bank of Georgia! This will help our ministry provide quality meals for our residents while maintaining a monthly budget. The money we will be saving will allow us to use our funds on other aspects of our program.
We are so excited to be able to thank Wayne Farms as they have decided to become one of our employers for our residents! We are continually seeking to find safe work environments for our residents and we are very grateful for the opportunity they have provided us!
We are honored to be able to participate in Recovery Fest 2016. This event will be held September 17th from 4:00—8:00pm at Georgia Square Mall in Athens, Ga. The mission of Recovery Fest is to provide those seeking recovery from addiction with information, hope and the message that recovery is real and attainable. We would love to see you there!
