Fairview/Fairmont Outreach


 

              Word from FV/FM Outreach director Sarah Miller...

           

 Exciting things are happening at Fairview/Fairmont! We are in the process of creating our summer programming. As we plan, we are doing our best to support resilience in the community following the initiatives of Peace4Crawford. Our hope is to promote a trauma-informed community and trauma-informed care through our program.  Two thirds of people have experienced at least one adverse childhood experience (ACEs). This trauma can have life-long impacts on health and well-being. We want the Outreach to be a space that understands the trauma people have endured. We want to meet people where they are and promote resilience. Every staff member and volunteer will receive an introductory to ACEs and resilience training. This training will also be available to residents at Fairview/Fairmont. Our trauma-informed journey starts with awareness. I could talk about this all day, so please reach out to me if you would like to hear more!

 

There are many ways you can assist our outreach ministry. Our number one request is prayer. Please join me in praying for Fairview/Fairmont. I invite you to pray for the people who call this community their home as well as for our staff and volunteers. You can also donate your time. We have many opportunities depending on your comfort level and availability. You could bake an after school snack, help elementary age kids with their homework, play basketball with the older teens and young adults, use graphic design skills to create flyers for field trips, or visit over a cup of tea with our senior residents. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please call or email. You can also help by donating supplies. Our current needs are deodorant, feminine hygiene products, toothpaste, Barbie’s, and a vacuum. If you have clothing donations, please take them to the Lord’s Locker.

It’s not that He doesn’t know --- He just wants the pleasure of your company.
