2020 is a pivotal time to make a Year-End gift to The GreenHouse. Here's why:
The GreenHouse began 18 years ago through conversations with parents and families on this unique and special block. As the founders listened, families expressed a desire for a safe place for kids to go and do their homework, and receive positive adult mentoring. The GreenHouse was born in response, and has grown to become a thriving, holistic youth development ministry!
Listening is important - and over time, it's important to keep listening. In 2019, The GreenHouse held a second "Listening Campaign." Through seven focus groups held in three languages, GreenHouse teens, graduates, parents and staff chose their top priorities in youth development at this time, in this neighborhood.
Through the Listening Campaign, we hear God and the community casting a vision for the future. Community members affirmed The GreenHouse commitment to After-School programming, spiritual development, and mentorship. The community strongly requested greater investment in parent engagement, community safety, and access to the arts.
Now we are laying the groundwork for this next season of growth by responding to our community's priorities. We are hiring a Parent Engagement Director, proactively engaging community safety priorities, and creating more space for arts integration in all our programs. Will you partner with us by giving a year-end gift? As always, your generosity translates into very concrete care for kids, teens and families - providing school supplies, meals, academic support, strong relationships, and spiritual mentorship - as well as these new priorities expressed by our community.
Give a gift today that transforms a whole community by investing in its young people!
