I took a family – mother and daughter to apply for a housing programs that assists with stabilizing structures, addressing heating issues. They were referred to me by one of our volunteers. When I picked them up this morning, they had a piece of birthday cake (the mom had a birthday on yesterday) and a card. It was a Christmas Card addressed to “community person”. I even got hugs.
Here is a group of youth and leaders that I worked with on a successful campaign to build a recreation center in Darley Park. Ground was broken on the 2nd phase- a gym this past Saturday. These young people knocked on doors, proposed designs, and went off to careers and college. The photo includes a college grad and two others still engaged in volunteering in their community.
We plant seeds; we are not always present for the harvest. Be inspired!
