FCCLA Regional Special Recognition

On Thursday, February 22nd, 2018, Blackwell FCCLA Members attended the Region II Service Learning Project at Compassion Ministries in Waco, Texas. Compassion Ministries 

The goal of Compassion Ministries is to reintegrate homeless individuals and those on the verge of homelessness into permanent housing and employment. To reach that goal, Compassion Ministries provides needed services for residents while living in our transitional housing facility, both in-house and in conjunction with local agencies currently providing services. These services include:

  • Counseling
  • Job training/search
  • Drug/alcohol treatment
  • Daycare
  • Children’s programs
  • Transportation
  • GED preparation
  • Health care
  • Social, domestic and work skills training
Blackwell was the only chapter to participate and dedicate their time and assistance. While there at Compassion Ministries, FCCLA Members were able to play with children, help clean, and help move and organize donations. Blackwell also donated 81 items to Compassion Ministries. Way to go Blackwell!
