NURTURE, SUPPORT AND ACCOUNTABILITY GROUP MENTOR TRAINING
Woodland Christian Church Fellowship Hall
530 East High Street

Mission Behind Bars and Beyond (MB3), is a faith-based non-profit that provides mentoring programs for individuals returning to the community after a period of incarceration. MB3 trains volunteers to form Nurture, Support and Accountability Groups (NSAG) to help returning citizens navigate the waters of re-entry. The NSAGs are comprised of 3-6 individuals who agree to covenant with one returning citizen for a 6-month period. During the six months, the NSAG members make frequent contact and have weekly face-to-face meetings with the mentee. They provide critical emotional support and assist them with identifying resources such as housing, recovery program, employment, and transportation. The NSAG also provides the returning citizen with exposure to people living faith-filled, successful and position lives.

Interested in the training to become a volunteer? Join us for one of these training dates:

Saturday, August 12

R.S.V.P. to Mark Johnson (majohnson2008@gmail.com) with your interest.

habitat

On Wednesday, July 20, the JOY Group delivered lunch to the Habitat Build site. They were invited to share in the lunch, which was much appreciated by the builders. It was great to meet them and see what their skilled hands have accomplished. Dedication of the house is scheduled for Saturday, August 13.

This year's house is for Ramazani Emongo, his wife Anita Mulumba and their four children. They are from the Democratic Republic of Congo and fled from the violence in their country to Malawi. They have been in Lexington for three years.
