Urgent Needs

  • Make meals for Tuesday evening Empowerment Class. This class is the 12-week pre-admissions class that moms go through to move into the Jeremiah Program.  This meal is a huge value to families and truly gives moms the time they need to focus on their personal development while attending this class.
    The meal is usually a warm meal and will need to be for 12 sets of moms/kids (all their kiddos are under the age of 5). We try to ensure we have options for dietary restrictions so we include a meat entree and a vegetarian entree. Volunteers will purchase and prepare the meal offsite and drop it off for the meal by 4 pm on Tuesdays. They have an oven to reheat any food. Below is a sample of what this meal could look like and you can download the planning form here.
