2022 PW Synod Mission Project: Welcome Home SIS
A Safe Space for System Impacted Survivors
The Synod of the Trinity’s Presbyterian Women’s mission project for 2022 is Welcome Home SIS, which is a non-profit, Christ-centered safety net that caters to women who have been impacted by the criminal injustice system and have endured a period of imprisonment.
Come Grow with Us! And its Fresh Community Garden and Safehouse Expansion. That is what we are focusing on in 2022. As quoted in the flyer, “Last year we had to turn away two women because we didn’t have the room. Unfortunately, both of these women are now back in prison. One because she was sleeping in a building she thought was vacant, and she was there because she had nowhere else to go…”
“Is it our fault these women went back to prison? Of course not. Could we have prevented it? Absolutely. I say this because not a single woman in our program has gone back to prison, not one.” -Angela Regan, Founder/Director
More housing is needed for these women, and that is where our donations come in. Not only are they providing a safe place to live but they are also helping them to gain critical skills for sustaining themselves and helping them to get back into the community. That is where the Get Fresh Community Garden comes in. Both areas need financial support. Please get this information out to your women. For more information go to their website here: WelcomehomeSIS.org.
Mission support should be sent to PW Presbytery Treasurers by Dec. 15, 2022.
