We will impact our community by offering educational outreaches, social activities,
care/support groups, and by promoting volunteer service in four key areas:
Life Skills: Educating people for growth. We are focused on helping individuals and families obtain the skills they need to grow personally and professionally, which will help them function more effectively in the community. Some examples of our work include offering leadership development for teenagers, mentoring programs, drug and alcohol awareness programs, English-as-a-second-language classes, basic computer skill classes, parenting seminars, money management workshops, resume building consultation, job interview coaching, etc.
Life Sharing: Relationally connecting people and community organizations. Healthy communities need wholesome activities and recreational outlets that draw people together. Improving the quality of community life by providing fun outlets where individuals and families can learn, play and experience community in a safe environment is a goal of Passion for Community. We offer free family fun nights, movie nights, community dances, pool parties, community cookouts, special interest clubs, game nights, and more!
Life Service: Involving people in community service. There are many gifted people with the ability to
transform our communities through service. Unfortunately, a leadership void exists in mobilizing and challenging
these people with real-time opportunities to serve.
Passion for Community provides leadership to coordinate and mobilize the services of volunteers from faith-based and community organizations.
We function as an "information broker" for matching volunteers with community service opportunities.
Examples include hosting trash cleanup days, community landscaping days, conducting fundraising, driving volunteerism in
"life skills" and "life support" programs,
visiting nursing homes and more.
Life Support: Supporting Individuals in Crisis. The wounds and struggles of every individual impact family units and extend to impact communities at large. Passion 4 Community offers practical support services to families in crisis and the "working poor", such as the provision of food, household items and other needed goods. To help individuals struggling with addiction, pain, grief, compulsive behaviors, divorce and other dysfunction, Passion 4 Community is creating and maintaining care and support groups that can assist hurting individuals in overcoming dysfunctional habits and addictions.
