Missional Monday

Today's Missional Monday is the third in a series of 3. It is the final candidate for receiving a portion of profits (if we ever have any!) from Twice as Nice Boutique. It is:

Phoebe's Home is actually a part of Twin City Mission, which I highlighted as one of the first 2 options for receiving funds. This specific portion of Twin City Missions
is an emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence. Phoebe's Home operates 24 hours a day...

In addition to services made available to non-residents, Phoebe's Home provides emergency shelter, nutritional meals, laundry facilities, daily needs (toiletries, clothing), transportation, and recreational activities for its residents.

The average length of stay at Phoebe's Home , which can house up to 45 individuals, is 30-45 days. Extensions are granted, when necessary, if goals are being met. Residential clients are often eligible to apply for transitional housing through Housing Services, a program of Twin City Mission.

The Domestic Violence Services program supports an active volunteer program. Volunteer opportunities include: assisting with clerical support, child play, organizing/facilitating children's activities, tutoring, education/training for residents, assisting with daily living activities, minor maintenance, grounds keeping and fundraising.

How can you help?
