Journey Bags: Children often come into foster care with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Journey Bags are backpacks which will provide personal belongings and comforting items for children entering foster care or being transitioned into new foster homes. During the months of December and January, Woven Together mobilized the Body of Christ to provide 45 Journey Bags to the Center for Youth and Family Solutions here in Logan County. If you would like to be a part of our next drive, contact Lisa.
Paper Trails is a group of local scrapbookers who are making lifebooks for children in the local foster care system. Lifebooks are a tool that social workers and foster parents can use to help the child do some emotional work. It also provides a special gift for the child, a place for them to be able to record any pictures of themselves they may have. We meet about every six weeks, and would love for you to join us!
Project Sunshine is a makeover project for foster agency waiting rooms. This was birthed out of a desire to create friendly spaces for kids during this dark time in their lives. May 2012 saw our first Project Sunshine at DCFS. April 2013 saw a team of 20+ people from numerous churches and backgrounds come together for a complete two room makeover.
