Most people are eager for December to approach because of the Christmas Holiday, hot chocolate by the fireplace, gifts under the tree and other traditions, but for eight Life Skills participants and seven children, December means the end of a 48-week journey.
On Thursday, December 8 at 6pm, we will gather to celebrate the participants at a formal graduation and reception at Christ Episcopal Church. Throughout the 48 weeks, participants engage in a journey of personal and career development, relationship restoration and financial literacy and management. The StepUp Ministry Staff gets to experience and celebrate the awesome transformations of participants and for many a new lease on life.
Please join us on December 8 for a moment of celebration and to see what this program means for the hundreds of people that come through the Life Skills program each year.
