How Did We Impact Our Community in 2021
June – October 2021
We launched Crafting Sundays which used arts and craft projects to increase socialization, self-expression, collaboration, cultural awareness, and creativity in the lives of children (ages 6 thru 12) in the Highland Park Upper Darby community as the world continued to recover from COVID-19. This program was highly attended and ran from June through October.
Movie In The Park
We hosted our first community movie in the park night in the Upper Darby Community.
We launched the Repurposed Project was a 10-day project in which we combined rehabbing/upcycling furniture with trauma informed interventions with young adults between the ages of 18 and 24. The project took place from November 29th through December 10th, 8:30 am to 1:30 pm. We are currently in our 6 months of case management follow-up for those that participated. Our overall objective was to create a safe space for everyone interested in repurposing furniture, while also refining new purposes for life. This program was a result of Fruits of the Family Table being awarded a Targeted Community Investment Grant by the City of Philadelphia.
Reintegration Case Management Services Continued to be strengthened, we provided support to with connecting returning individuals to the 2021 Covid Reentry Payment Program offered by the Office of Reentry Partnership.
We logged over 200 case management hours to our community members who are justice involved. We have provided lay-therapeutic services, made referrals to connect participants to obtain their forklift license, GED program, individual therapy, family therapy, crisis management services and basic need resources.
