The Presbyterian Home for Children
Presbyterian Home for Children Service Project
This month we are focusing on and learning more about the Presbyterian Home for Children, a ministry partner in Talladega, Alabama. The Presbyterian Home for Children serves children, families and young adults who seek healing and hope for their troubled lives. Established by the Presbyterian Church in Alabama, the home accepted its first child in 1868. Ascension Leadership Academy, a school run by PHC, supports children in the home and community with small class sizes, caring teachers and staff, and a fully accredited K-12 program.
Our Outreach team visited the home in the Spring of 2018 and met with President Doug Marshall who showed us the beautiful campus and school, introduced us to their incredible staff and shared the vision and needs of PHC. The team has been working closely with PHFC to plan a service trip that will introduce this incredible organization to more of our congregation. The trip will take place on May 3rd-4th with more details to follow. Contact Lori Visone (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
In preparation for that trip, we are excited to begin accepting school supply donations for the Ascension Leadership Academy. The school supply list will be available in the office and attached to all donation boxes on the CPC campus. Below is an abbreviated version:
Binders (2”) – Black or white
College and Wide Ruled Paper
Paper Clips (regular and jumbo sized)
For more information regarding school supply donations come to the office for the official list or email Christina Dobrowolski at email@example.com.
We are excited to partner with The Presbyterian Home for Children this month. We will continue to share more about their work throughout April. Please partner with us in prayer over their ministry and work. To learn more visit: www.phfc.org.
