THE GOAL - October 2014
Too many of the Ladies we reach in the LaPorte County Jail, are trapped in the recidivism (re-arrest) cycle. They leave the Jail broken, hurting, and isolated. They have nowhere to go but back to the same environment that contributed to their incarceration. Although Sonshine facilitates non-faith based and faith-based studie at the LaPorte Jail, not all of them participate. Many come back to jail, sometimes a week after being released. These Ladies need a place to go, to heal, to learn structure, to understand how amazing they can be.
We will offer this in a safe and sober residential living environment which will give them hope for a future; and teach them the tools needed to become self-sufficient, positive, value driven members of society. We will teach them appropriate interaction with their children and family, as well as interacting in appropriate, healthy and positive relationships.
We are blessed to partner with a few of the local churches, businesses, and most importantly our community. We purchased a large building on September 7, 2011. Our home is located at 1001 Maple Street in LaPorte, with over 4800 Square feet of room.
But it is not enough. We need everyone. We need our community to come together, to help our ladies and their children. The children are the ones who suffer the most. We need your prayers. We need more monthly monetary partnerships. WE are taking our Building from "AS IS!" to "IT IS FINISHED!" WE NEED YOU.
Please join our team! May God receive the Glory.
Because.…our faith is worth much more.....! 1 Peter 1:5-7
