Monthly Awards Program

Monthly awards lunches are a particularly meaningful way for our women receive recognition and love from staff and one another as they work to transform their lives.  Each small step is recognized as they mover closer to their goal of a happier, healthier, crime-free life. Each month women are presented certificates of achievement and celebrated for their achievements.  For women who have had little to celebrate in their lives, it is an empowering event at which they share with others how they are making positive changes in their lives and moving toward achieving their goals. 

As the seasons change, celebrations are combined with holiday themes.  At Christmas, Santa comes to deliver presents; for the Fourth of July we have a picnic in Pere Marquette Park; Thanksgiving always includes a turkey with all of the accompanying dishes of the season.
