Strengthening Communities in Need: Spirit-Filled Approaches (Situations of Substance series)

Care of body, mind, soul-spirit, and community relationships are all part of building and restoring neighborhood well-being and social change. This evening the executive directors of two centers in Milwaukee will share the stories of people who come to their centers in need, those learning to engage as neighbors, and those they train as mentors. Their programs address immediate needs, literacy, household budgeting, GED and computer education, gardening and home-building, and community development. Within all of this is group sharing and personal care for the spirits and spirituality of those who come.
