“OPEN TABLE” – A New Light House Initiative
This new program offers us a chance to ‘Walk alongside one person or family for a year’ to help them manage their (re)entry independent living. It requires 5-8 participants each of whom would be helping in various areas (finance/budgeting, job search and interview skills, spiritual life, healthcare, housing, insurance, transportation etc. Dividing up these areas will mean not one or two people will do the work, but work will be shared by many. Over-arching this program is the idea of building trust and relationships with the person or family by sometimes getting together and sharing time and meals etc. A lot like what we have been doing with Yasir and Noor’s family. A personal walking with someone who often has had very little of this in their life. The people will be vetted and have been through a year’s worth of rehab and training in the Lighthouse program. Our partners will have back ground checks and up-front and continuous Training and guidance from the National Open Table Organization. Please contact Hildy Cardaci or Monica Rausa Williams to discuss if this might be a program you want to help with! I think this could be just OUR TYPE of program!
One month away!
