Our GOAL team of trainers has facilitated two educational workshops, one for families at Willow Street Mennonite Church and one for pastors and congregational leaders at Bethesda Mission’s men’s shelter in Harrisburg, changing and informing 50 individuals and six churches. Participants in the workshops had this to say about the experience:
