On Wed June 30th @ 6:30pm, Sojourners will be meeting at the Riverside Church for a brainstorming session to plan for ways we can help build a network of support for detainees that have been released into the city and surrounding area. We'd love for you to make it. Current ideas include: making self available for cup of coffee, plugging former-detainee into volunteer services like soup kitchen, plugging detainee into temporary housing options, etc. We're looking to think of any organizations, social services, partners, friends, even our own individual strengths we can tap into to better provide for detainees.
For those that cannot make it to the meeting, we'd love for you to send someone in your stead who may also be interested. If this isn't possible, no worries, shoot us an e-mail and we'll keep you posted if you'd like.
In the meantime, be thinking of any organizations, social services, partners, friends, even your own individual strengths we can tap into.
Ask front desk at church for directions to meeting.
