FREDERICKSBURG KIDS EXPO EXPERIENCE

 

MENTORING IS FUN!

 

     

 

Mentoring is such a rewarding experience!

Our children’s Directors had an opportunity to take a few of our young ladies on an outing to the Fredericksburg Kids Expo and they had a blast. This was the first time that these particular kids had the opportunity to visit the expo. It was an amazing day as we heard back from the parents.

Mentoring is not hard! It’s a time that you get to invest in the life of another. It could be one, two or three hours per week. You get to decide. I promise you, the time spent with a child, is a great investment in yourself and the mentee.

Would you consider mentoring. You have so much to share with others. Why not invest in another deserving individual.

If you would like more information, email our mentor coordinator, Teshia Hackler. She will gladly set a time to share with you and answer any questions that you may have. She can be reached by email.

Transitions Happenings!

These were his instructions to them: “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields. ~ Luke 10:2~ NLT

Mentor Program Update!

We are excited to announce that we now have our mentor program up and running. We still have youth on our waiting list and encourage you to pray and consider if this may be right for you. Please contact us at changingliveslocally@gmail.com if you would like more information.

Stomp Out Summer Hunger!

Macaroni Kid Fredericksburg, partnered with us in a project to keep kids supplied with food and snacks for the summer months. The “Stomp Out Summer Hunger” project is packing 55+ back packs each Monday morning with the items that has been donated. This project will run through September 4th. We just found out that we have 15 new kids this week. With that being said, we need 15 new back packs and more volunteers as well as food/snack items. Individually wrapped and small enough to fit in a back pack. For more information or to volunteer please email stephaniestewart@macaronikid.com

T4Y  S.W.A.G  Youth (Saved By Amazing Grace)

What an awesome name for this group of young people! Each week about 20 youth between the ages of 10 and 16 meet at one of our local facilities for an amazing evening of activities, food, and God’s word. This number grew in a matter of weeks from 5or 6 youth to now 20. We are in need of additional volunteers with a heart for young people as well as groups that will prepare a meal for the kids on Monday evenings! If this is your heart and passion please email us at changingliveslocally@gmail.com and our youth leaders will be in touch.

Thank You For Your Support

When the body of Christ come together with one common goal, things happen!

We are blessed to have each one of you as a supporter of Transition. No matter how big or how small, every effort make a difference in the lives of others.

We had the honor of being interviewed on the Positive Hit’s PER Community Matters show a couple of weeks ago and we wanted to share the interview with you so you can listen and learn more about how your donations are helping the community.

You will also hear from Stephanie with Macaroni Kid Fredericksburg as she share about her partnership with us through her project “Stomp Out Summer Hunger”!

God Bless you and we pray that you enjoy the interview.

One paycheck…is all that separates many families from a life of homelessness!

Contributing factors may be: Continue reading Homelessness
