The Palm House
December 15, 2021, Abilene, TX
We are honored to partner with The Palm House as they continue in their mission offering support & programming to women, children, and college students in their neighborhood. We believe that our continued combined efforts enhance the communities we serve. The Palm House has a variety of programing for the local community.
Palm House Kids
Twice a week during the school year, we pick up kids from elementary to high school and we partner with college students from all three local universities to become mentors for the kids. The college students are real-life examples of what it looks like to graduate and begin pursuing dreams. Our volunteers come back semester after semester which creates meaningful connections with the kids. They eat together, do homework, and simply develop friendship through deep connection!
Women’s Communications Group
What first began as a program birthed under the Violence Against Women’s Act (VAWA) has now evolved into a powerful group of women who have become more than survivors. We meet over lunch once a week and discuss topics that allow them to conquer the effects of trauma, while educating them on how to communicate effectively and how to break away from old patterns.
The Table – College Ministry
We have an amazing collection of young adults who partner with us each week. We began to see a need for our college students to connect and have mentors of their own. Thus began our Sunday night hang-out time, where we invest in our college students who in turn invest in our children. We eat together, chat, listen, and give them space to grow in a home away from home.
