Restoration Rome - Needs and Opportunities
Weeding - Recently, a wonderful group of young ladies took care of this, but, as you know, the weeds will be back soon. This is an ongoing opportunity.
Clean up Day/Evening - There are several large pieces of furniture in the cafeteria that need to be moved to another area at Restoration Rome. This will be an action-packed day/evening. Lots of lifting, movement and walking will be involved.
After school program - There are opportunities to help with the younger set – K-6th graders on a consistent basis (at least one afternoon a week) or by bringing in a special program.
Teen boys and teen girl engagement – 1) Thrive is a YMCA-led early evening program for teen boys primarily serving those living in the East Rome Crossing neighborhood around RR. 2) Three Circles Ministry offers monthly Saturday “camps” in Floyd and Chattooga Counties for teens in state care, at-risk, or needing a father figure. 3) Glowing Girls offers teen girls 12-18 a monthly Saturday gathering at RR and an annual Conference Day in February. All of these programs would benefit from supportive help with food/supplies and especially with volunteers interested in building relationships with our teens. 4) Making Sense of Your Worth for Teens is an 8-week program that we want to make available to our teen girls. Assistance with hospitality and activity preparation would be a big help.
Young Adult Ministry – Connections Homes trains mentoring families to serve as a resource (not a home) for young adults (18-24) aging out of foster care or lacking family. Mentoring families are meant primarily to be a source of wisdom and guidance during the transition to adulthood, rather than providers of housing, clothing, etc.Providing Meals for groups that meet at RR
Parent support group - This group includes parents that are working on reunification with their children. Meetings are every Thursday evening and they usually have about 10-12 people. Providing a simple, easy meal for this meeting would be so appreciated. Joining in for the mealtime would be a great way to encourage these families, as well. If you can't be there for the meeting, meals can be dropped off at RR the day of the meeting.
Foster Parent Association Monthly meeting - Childcare and providing a meal are the two needs for this group. This is a larger group than the parent support group (~ 30 adults and children).
Making Sense of Your Worth for Adults - Childcare is needed so that birth moms can attend the meetings and discover their self-worth. There are 8 sessions in the program and classes are offered at various times of the day to accommodate specific groups. Schedules are developed based on a waitlist.
Decorating rooms at RR - a few volunteers with an "eye" for decorating are needed. RR has received an abundance of donations of pictures that need to be paired together and coordinated with wall colors and floor colors to find that perfect spot. These volunteers would work closely with a YMCA volunteer that will be making frames for the pictures.
Items Needed - Underwear (new in package), diapers, wipes, formula, socks, and other infant/child items.
*To sign up for any of these opportunities, please contact Mary Margaret at firstname.lastname@example.org or (706)346-6419.
