Floral Arrangement Class Graduates

Congratulations to the first graduates of the floral arrangement (the cooking class was suspended in the middle of the semester due to lack of participation)  course at INMED’s Opportunity Center. This 10-week Mujer Unica course, facilitated by Ekklesia USA, teaches  skills to help women acquire new job skills and advance their career opportunities (or something like that).. It’s one of several skills development courses provided by INMED’s Opportunity Center on Saturdays. For more information about this EKKLESIA USA program and other classes at the Center, contact Maria Vasquez at 703-729-4951.

Successful Job Fair

We received a nice note from Andrey Chekalin of One Commonwealth Advisors (pictured at left), who participated in INMED’s recent job fair at the Family & Youth Opportunity Center. “We had great success talking to some of the candidates and are already interviewing them for a potential position,” he wrote. “I am personally interviewing about seven people between today and tomorrow. We are appreciative of this opportunity and are looking forward for more in the future.”

National Family Literacy Month

Did you know that November is National Family Literacy Month? At INMED’s Family & Youth Opportunity Center, our Healthy Families Loudoun program helps young and at-risk mothers and fathers learn vital parenting skills for raising healthy, self-sufficient children. In addition to educational workshops and other activities, reading together is one of the best ways to build a strong family unit. It’s never too early to start practicing family literacy—just watch this smart baby girl reading to her mom, one of our Healthy Families Loudoun graduates: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJbo7bQghiY

Invite us to your party!

As we enter the season of year-end giving, please consider including INMED to your company’s or civic organization’s holiday celebration. Adding a philanthropic component to your event planning activities will help to create a more purposeful function for those in need. Your generous tax-deductible gift will enable the INMED Opportunity Center to address the needs of the low-income community throughout the new year.And you’ll help us improve the lives of children who face daunting challenges—like six-year-old Anita, who goes home after school to an empty apartment. Her single mother works three jobs and still the family teeters on the brink of homelessness. Your support could help Anita’s mother participate in our homelessness prevention program and provide a scholarship for Anita to attend our after-school academic enrichment program.

Contact Cecilia Capece at ccapece@inmed.org for more information.
