Celebrating New Growth!
By Dr. Thomas Woods, Director

I am so proud to announce that we will be growing in yet another way. L&F will have a prisoner reentry program in conjunction with Power and Passion and St. Vincent DePaul as we work together to provide services to returning citizens from the prison system. The program is designed to prepare them for life in the outside world. New growth that will be needed at L&F to placate that last portion of Matthew 25; For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, “I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me

Steppingstones Project, a 1-year pilot program was awarded a grant from the St. Vincent Society to birth this very important program. I am thrilled to be partnering with two great organizations to assist with yet another population in need of our services. Growth, strength, empathy, perseverance, love, caring and understanding. That’s how we are growing at L&F. It’s my hope that you will join and grow with us in your journey to help others who are less fortunate.
