Goodbyes and Transitions

Home For Good

David, Nelson M., Nelson K., and Isaac prepare to leave Shelter and return home. They, along with 8 other carpentry/welding students, completed their courses at Shelter this week. Now they will return home to their families and complete an apprenticeship at a local workshop before transitioning into full-time work. We are so proud of them and wish them all the best!

The Gift Of Knowledge

August has been a busy month at Shelter! One of our partners, Baptist Global Response, sent a team of wonderful volunteers to train and teach our boys.

Bruce and Matt spend a week and half training 16 boys and staff in MIG welding, a skill that will be incredibly useful for our departing boys as they seek work in the future.

Their wives, Nenna and Sue, spent countless hours teaching our 2019 rescue group, everything from math to calligraphy to the meaning of the different names of God.

We are so grateful for the time they have spent investing in our program, and happy to welcome them into the Shelter family. A big thank you to Baptist Global Response for their continued partnership.

In addition to our carpentry/welding students, we will be reuniting an additional 7 boys with their families at the end of the month. Our staff has been working diligently with the boys on their academics so that they will be prepared to rejoin school in September.

Thank You!

During this time of transition, as we send each boy off and prepare to welcome a new group of boys from the street, we are more thankful than ever for your support. These reunifications would not be possible without your generous donations. We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to do this very important work. Don't forget to follow our Facebook page for real-time updates on the program and how you can continue to support us!
