Partners in Care
Participating congregations agree to provide the Residing Chaplain with a current list of supportive services offered, as well as a congregational point of contact for coordination and communication of information, referrals, and support. I am currently working on “Partners in Care” congregations located in West, East, Southeast and Middle Tennessee who offer services that include counseling, child care, basic household and auto repairs, lawn care, home cooked meals, child and teen mentoring, reunion support, single parent deployment support, emergency food, clothing and housing support, transportation, parenting classes and financial support. (This list is not exhaustive and availability varies by congregations)
This program encourages both older couples to communicate with younger couples. Instead of a “marriage counseling” type of mentoring, this program simply uses a successful, healthy couple as a role model.
They share their experience through their stories. The wealth of resources in healthy life style marriages can be mobilized to help strengthen younger married couples. The program is designed with flexibility to meet the demands of work and school schedule deployments.
