The Sophie House News January 2018

 

Welcome to 2018 – The Sophie House is moving forward and walking alongside many women who have found themselves in situations that they didn’t expect.

While we continue to receive calls and emails from women who seem to be in very difficult situations, we strive to offer encouragement and hope for them to move past the wall they are facing. The Sophie House housing program is the second step in the process of healing and hope – some women come to us in a very fragile state and homeless. We can refer them our partner organizations to begin the process of stability while we offer food pantry, counseling, and budgeting as a start to our program. We then walk alongside them for 6 months to a year to ensure they are ready for ‘graduation’ from our program and into a stable & secure home going forward. With January being Mentoring Awareness Month, you may want to consider volunteering with us to be a mentor to a single mother; be a listener, teacher, and accountability partner as she moves through the program. We look forward to meeting many new people and staying connected to our current friends.

“I am just trying to stay focused and get my family back on track. I thank you for your advice. It really made a difference in how I viewed things, you helped me put things into perspective. I also thank you for the prayers. They are always needed and appreciated”
