Donations for WeCare

As many are aware, there is quite a growing problem with drugs and drug addiction in our community. Our church has recently partnered with a ministry called WeCare Recovery, which was started by Frankfort’s Bible Holiness Church in July of 2019. WeCare signed a lease with our Trustees to use the manse across from our church. This move increased the capacity of the ministry so that it can house 8, rather than 6 women. Additionally, FEPC’s Mission Team opted to include WeCare in the 2021 Community Outreach budget.
WeCare is certified by the National Association of Recovery Residences and operates a nine-month, faith based program for women who are trying to turn their lives around and leave drug addiction behind. The women often come to the home directly after being incarcerated. They participate in addiction recovery classes, Bible study, life skills and financial planning classes. Many of the women attend church with staff members who work at the home.
The women pay a monthly fee to participate in the program and other funding is secured through a program called Recovery Works. Currently there are four staff members, one of whom is a Nurse Practitioner. WeCare is working alongside One80Recovery, a men’s facility that is being constructed on 200 West in Frankfort. The two ministries hope to have
a cooperating physician to assist members from both homes.
How can we help? There are many items the home needs, some are one time needs, while others will be ongoing. Current needs include twin and full size sheets and blankets, towels and washcloths, a small vacuum, brooms, a large dining room table, and a locking file cabinet. Ongoing needs are paper products (toilet paper, tissues, paper towels), cleaning supplies, trash bags, and office supplies. We will have a place set up at church on the stage where items can be contributed. Additionally, please continue to lift this wonderful ministry, its leaders and participants in your prayers.
