Our Sixty and Better group has made a commitment to establish programs to support and mentor young mothers and families. Our initial goal is to begin by reaching out to parents and children in Good Shepherd’s preschool, followed by others in our congregation and neighborhood.
This month we invite our speaker Lora Overton MD, a Fort Wayne Obstetrician and Gynecologist, to introduce us to the local “Guardian Angel Project”. Dr. Overton wrote the curriculum for this new initiative that trains volunteers to walk side-by-side with women and families, giving them support and connections to resources they may need.
The “Guardian Angel Project” is associated with the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation. The training and resources available to us seem to fit perfectly with the direction we have been given to make a difference in the lives of families in our community.
