Congratulations to FOCUS Ministries for being awarded the Phase I Trinity Foundation Grant for a FOCUS on Women's Re-Entry Wellness. This is an honor to be selected by such a great community organization.
Please pray for us as we plan and prepare for the Phase II work. There will research, a written application, and an appeal presentation in the fall.
God is good to supply our every need!
Well, we have exciting news! The MENS New Beginnings Re-Entry Program is expanding. In order to help navigate the need for more bed-space, FOCUS is opening a second men's home.
The new home is designed to help men finish the residential program well while providing an additional 3-month sober-living lease option. One day, FOCUS hopes to provide even more sober living homes. This is simply the first step toward that dream.
With that said, upon moving in we are going to need a few items to get this house up and running. We are reaching out to churches and small groups aid in this effort. A Smile.Amazon.com wishlist has been created for those willing to donate to the house-warming effort. We would love to see churches, small groups or individual families adopt a room and fill it with items from the wishlist below.
If you would like to know more about the program or you would like to visit the house, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Adopt a Room ...
Just because the declared Second Chances month is officially come and gone, FOCUS is still passionately pursuing the new beginnings for men and women behind and beyond the walls of East Tennessee jails and prisons.
