Mission Granbury provides hope

April 20, 2013

Spring is in the air, a time for new growth and life, which spells hope! If we can’t provide hope to our clients then our purpose is futile.

Mission Granbury’s primary purpose is to “provide resources for individuals and families in need or crisis.” Hope should be equally as important as the services we provide our clients.

Mission Granbury has experienced some changes during recent months. We now have a new board chair, Lance Terry, and a new vice chair, Paula Schirman. We look forward to their leadership in the coming years.

We would like to thank Dan Coates for his seven years of service and commitment to Mission Granbury as its board chair. We wish Dan and his family our very best.

Welcome to our new Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator, Crystal Moore, our Food Pantry and Resale Shop Specialist, Dana Griffith and Prinston Hill, our Victims Services Coordinator.

THREE NEW INITIATIVES

New initiatives are on the horizon such as the Weekend Food for Kids Program which provides weekend food to students at Crossland 9th Grade Center.

Another initiative is the Family Violence & Sexual Assault Legal Clinic to provide free legal help to individuals affected by sexual assault or domestic violence, and helps participants identify helpful community resources.

Program providers include Legal Aid of North West Texas, Hood County Bar Association, various Hood County service agencies and Mission Granbury.

The clinic meets here every fourth Thursday of the month from 5-7 p.m. Appointments are required, as space is limited. Please call Mission Granbury at 817-579-6866 to make a reservation.

The Chaplain Program is a third initiative that has been implemented for several months and is a huge success. We would like to especially thank Jack Buckler, with StoneWater Church, for his enthusiasm and caring spirit with our clients.

CHILD ABUSE AWARENESS

Also, April is Child Abuse Awareness Month, and we have placed blue windmills in the community to represent each child who has been inflicted by abuse or neglect in our community. We are proud of our CASA volunteers for their diligence in helping these vulnerable children through our program.

Again, it is a tremendous honor to be in this role. I am delighted to witness how the Granbury community responds to the needs of others. We thank you all, and look forward to continuing our work together to make a difference in the community.
