RE:   May 25, 2015

I wish everyone a safe and family filled Memorial Day weekend.  I am proud to have participated my years in the U.S. Army.  

We are busy planning our second annual golf outing at Elk Run Golf Coarse here in Jeffersonville for June 8.  We need golfers.  In addition, we will be hosting a card parting that afternoon in the dinning room.  Please call and support us on June 8th.

HOW MAY WE HELP YOU?


Comments from those we serve: 


Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have to come to a food pantry!


I could write a book on how grateful I am for the Bliss House...my family actually loves having me around and I'm even trusted now. 


I was told about you when I was unemployed.  We have three children and didn't know what to do.  Thank you for being there in our time of need.  I started a new job and would like to give back to help another family. 

 

All my papers were destroyed in the storm and somebody told me you would help.


I graduated Bliss House in April 2011.  I have learned a new way of living and it's to live sober, happy, and productive...


You gave us our daughter back - the Bliss House saved her life...thank you.


By partnering with organizations, individuals, businesses, churches and government entities, the greeting and philosophy at the Center for Lay Ministries, to provide assistance to those in need, will continue.
