We are looking for two volunteers to help our students manage a garden as a component of their healing from life controlling problems, such as a drug or alcohol addiction. We want our students to experience the wonders of God's creation through gardening. Gardening is a lifelong skill and has many benefits, including a heightened sense of responsibility, improved social skills, and heightened self-esteem.
We are looking for volunteers who could commit to coming 2-3 times a week for one hour. If you are interested in this opportunity, or know someone who is, please contact Jen Fyock via email or call 414-322-7660.
My name is Grace and I am 25 years old. I was born and raised in the south side of Chicago. My parents got divorced when I was 12 years old and it really affected me. I was very upset and sad that I had to be in the middle of my parent’s separation. As I got older I continued to carry this anger and darkness that followed me.
My name is Natalie and I’m 20 years old. I am proud to say I have found God, and there is no going back for me. Over one year ago I came into the program, a completely broken and lost soul. I had tried everything that the world had to offer me, explored every religion, but I was still left empty. I was facing prison time.
