Council program receives support

Thank you to our Upper Keys community for the support of the Living Springs Counseling and Living Waters Prescription project.

On June 18, we had our inaugural High Tea Extravaganza and it was a huge success. Thank you to Rachel Machado for the live music, Crystal and Landon Clark for the amazing setup and serving help and to my husband Delbert Carter for all of his support and help throughout.

Participants and servers alike enjoyed many laughs, a filling and very tasty four-course dinner of finger food, sustaining camaraderie. We also would like to thank all these generous local businesses that provided silent auction items and all those who bought tickets, gave donations and placed bids on items. Please mark your calendars for round two in March 2017.

Your support helps provide pastoral counseling services, parenting classes, addiction recovery support and Rx assistance to our Upper Keys neighbors who would not normally be able to afford to care for themselves in this way. Our focus is the families that make up our community.

We engage people in living out Different Options for Living Playing and Hoping In Nonviolence and Safety (DOLPHINS). This year so far we’ve provided 133 pastoral counseling sessions at an affordable sliding scale, 38 free sessions for those making less than $20,000 and provided $1,362 in Rx assistance due to kindhearted local support.
