A college small group gathered together recently and gave ever so generously of their time during this Be Rich season! This small group chose to serve together at HomeStretch, helping with a LifeSkills Education Class – we wanted to share the incredible impact they had while at HomeStretch.
“The night was better for their contribution. I loved working with them. HomeStretch could never afford to provide this platform without the gracious volunteers who give their time. The kids loved having college kids around, and the Northpoint kids were quick to give them attention with humor and kindness.
LifeSkills is an important platform which brings all the families in program together for a community meal and then relevant break out groups depending on ages. It’s a key component we use to equip families as they journey to a place of permanent stability.
They worked in the elementary school art and science workshops and the middle and high school youth development small group discussions about realities and strategies related to bullying. They shared in in dinner with the families, getting to know them.
They left us better than they found us!”
– Carol, HomeStretch Program Director
This is just one of the MANY stories of small groups, families, and individuals giving generously of their time through this Be Rich season! We’d love to hear your personal story, too!
