Mission Trip 2011-First Step

 First Step is a women's shelter for women who are survivors of domestic and sexual assault. Counting women residents and their children, at any given time, they will be around 50 people living at the shelter. This is a brand new facility. The women and children will be moving in very soon.

Our job will be to turn this large training room into a dining room for the residents.

These before pictures show the bones of the room.

 As you can see, a lot of work will need to be done to make the room comfortable and functional.
This work is as large as some people's apartments. It is 950 square feet.

 Because First Step is within our community, we will be able to go home and sleep in our own beds every night.

 It will be such a privilege to meet these families who have safely escaped abuse and are taking the first step to their new lives. Our hope is that we will encourage them with our work, as well as have some time to visit with them while we are there.
