Upcoming Event: 2nd Annual Spring Luncheon Fundraiser
Saturday, May 6th at Lakeside Pavilion 11am
We are excited to welcome New York Times best-selling author and critically acclaimed author of six novels, including her most recent, The Nearness of You, Amanda Eyre Ward.
Ward writes about the delicate modern issue of mental illness and surrogacy. In the book, a successful heart surgeon has removed all desire to have a family because of her own memories of her own mothers’ struggle with mental illness strikes fear in her. But when her husband convinces her that they can experience a family through the use of a surrogate, they end up on a road to a place they never saw coming.
Proceeds from the event will be used to support the housing programs of the Jesus Center; Sabbath House, our emergency shelter for women and children, House of Hope, our women’s transitional home, Sage House, offering housing for senior women experiencing homelessness, Birch House, our men’s transitional home, and Myrtle House, our transitional home for single women with children.
