With your donations food will be purchased from Second Harvest Food Bank Southeast North Carolina Division by our organization, and distributed to up to 1,500 families each month.
Approximately 20% of the state of North Carolina residents qualifies for assistance. Our client base is zero to low-income people, mainly families, who need emergency help to put food on the table. Nearly half of those served by the program are children. Second Harvest Food Bank operates a warehouse facility where we shop for the donated or rescued food for distribution. The program actively solicits food from local food growers, retailers, wholesalers, and processors.
A program will be implemented that teaches the residents necessary life skills and provides a collaborative approach to empowerment which is the keystone to developing self-sufficiency. Classes will include personal development, vocational training, substance abuse counseling, interpersonal skills building, community involvement, leisure activities, and independent living skills.
Our Crystal Rain Institute Youth program will form partnerships with local school districts and the juvenile court system. The goal is to foster a commitment to young people that will promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and reassert a sense of hope in the future. Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be reestablished that will give youth the commitment to follow through on a path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
Through repeated failures in the classroom and the development of destructive habits, at-risk young people have lost faith in the possibilities that await them if they are successful in putting their lives together. To accomplish this goal, young people must be in a caring, inclusive learning environment that promotes their best effort and reinforces personal respect.
Our facilities are long-term transitional housing. All other shelters only offer up to 30 days of housing whereas Treasures of the Heart International MinistriesTransitional Housing would offer a one year program to assist them in home ownership and a savings program. On staff is a chemical dependency counselor, AIDS counselor, and a family reunification counselor to assist clients.
The goal is to develop believers that are holistically prepared for the full Christian experience. We understand that being well prepared spiritually has its great reward; however, it is imperative to apprehend the fact that the capabilities associated with this spiritual hypertrophy is minimized when the believer is struggling in other areas (such as health, fitness, and finance). Though the focal point will be on fitness we will offer programs to help participants in areas such has finance, marriage, bridging faith and the workplace, and more.
Although the program is designed for Christian believers we will also offer the program to nonbeliever with an adjusted curriculum that will expose them to the faith without inappropriately imposing Christianity upon them.
