Open Table Ministry seeks to help people break out of poverty.
Tables are made up of 6 to 12 members, who pledge a year to assist someone in need set a Life Plan and begin to achieve it. We are working with Catholic Charities and Crosswinds Youth Services who refer candidates they think can benefit from this service.
28 parishioners have completed the training to serve as Table members, and have begun to serve four young adults (between 18-22 years old) who have been homeless and are aging out of services. We hope to begin training for a fifth Table in the fall. If you are interested in this new Ministry contact Deacon Michael.
When these young adults reach age 22 they can no longer stay in the Transitional Living Program with Crosswinds Youth Services. So anyone who knows of any affordable housing like apartment, room or shared living arrangement, please contact Deacon Michael at [email protected]
Our parish ministry, Open Table, is looking for leads on jobs for young adults ages 18-22. Since public transportation is limited in our area, anyone who has a car you don't need and are willing to donate would help them commute to work. We are hoping to soon start a fifth Table to assist young adults aging out of services or homeless families.
