After our wonderful GED Coordinator and official tour guide, Jamie, took the group through our building and explained the programs Heartside offers,
Jamie and Keyth, one of our stellar volunteers known as the Deacon of Heartside, took us on a neighborhood tour that included some of the other non-profit institutions in the area, Degage Ministries and Guiding Light Mission. We stopped for a few photos at Guiding Light in front of the mural that Jamie painted for the Mission.
We skipped visiting Mel Trotter and instead headed back to the Art Studio so members of the group could create some art with Heartside artists. Billy, Pastor at The Community, took that time to interview some people, interviews that will end up sometime soon in a video we will share.
Then they had to head home but left having met new people, having had some good conversations, and knowing they had filled many grateful bellies. And then, this happened :-(
Staff goofing with staff.
Cheers to good friends and neighbors, and to being both!
