The Ladle Fellowship and the Downtown Fellowship
New Ministry Opportunities
Training Sessions Start Saturday, August 5
The Ladle Fellowship and the Downtown Fellowship is conducting its first training session for mentors on Saturday morning, August 5 - this is a open to all, and it is a free course! The topics covered will be "understanding differences in worldview" (how things like generational poverty, systemic injustice, trauma, and mental illness can affect how people approach the world, and how they experience homelessness) and "relationship building" (mostly focused on helping mentors just listen and dialogue rather than teach). We have speakers lined up from PATH, Alpha Project, and NAMI. Here's the link to sign-up. If you have questions about mentoring, or if you would like to hear more about this mentoring program, please contact our new Ladle Care Counselor, Lyssa Melonakos for more information.
