Over the past ten years, ElderSHINE has been the source of much joy and connection for a group of low-income elders living in East Baltimore. This is how one ElderSHINE participant describes her experience: “You know I’d be fit to be tied if I missed my SHINE group! It’s my joy. It makes me a better person towards other people.”
We are celebrating the completion of the first phase of our inaugural two-year Facilitator Training Institute. The second phase of the program will focus on the SHINE program at the Women’s Housing Coalition. This phase allows the Facilitator Trainees to observe and directly participate in an on-site program with the residents. YOU can be an important part of this exciting new phase.
You do so much for others. You take care of a million details, check off your to-do list, make sure things get done. Yet, when do you step back and offer yourself the same energy, care and consideration that you so willingly extend to your list, to your projects, to others?
