We will be sporting our tie dye shirts Thursday night at the High Point Annual Citywide Easter Egg Hunt, where we will be volunteering as monitors. We do this in conjunction with the High Point Parks and Recreation Department and it is treat for all to be a part of the community.
We’d also like to welcome LaMone Parker as our new Kitchen Coordinator. Mone comes with lots of experience in the kitchen and is making our lunch bunch very happy.
We’d like to thank Dan and Bill for coordinating the volunteers who are helping with meal preparation and serving at Ward Street Mission.
On Thursday, the staff of Caring Services will be welcoming Twyla Wilson to lead a Healing Trauma training. With a strong emphasis on grounding skills, the session topics include: the process of trauma, power and abuse, grounding and self-soothing, and healthy relationships. Since trauma is a risk factor in nearly all behavioral health and substance use disorders, we are especially happy that the City of High Point Community Development and Housing Department has provided the agency with a grant to train staff in how to more effectively deal with the trauma endured by those we serve.
We are grateful for our many supporters who donate time, money, services, and labor.
