Paige HarkerI am happy to share that we accomplished much this past year!  We launched the F.A.I.T.H. Initiatives Program  (Face Addiction with Intervention and Training for Healing) and six (6) Lancaster and nine (9) York County churches are in various phases of ministry mobilization and launch to provide addiction prevention and recovery support to their congregants.  It is inspiring to see these churches blaze the way so that more families in our community may find healing and wellness, and ultimately reduce addictions in all forms. I am so impressed by these churches because they have stepped forward to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families in their congregation. Together, we know that by the healing power of God, we can be the conduits to help individuals in our neighborhoods sustain recovery.

I am also happy to say that tremendous progress has been made in Uganda with the school-wide prevention program last year. (See next page for more details.)

In the upcoming year, I anticipate more growth and impact in central PA and Uganda.  We are holding another training series in East York, PA  starting on August 31st, and offering a Training of Trainers workshop on August 22-24 in Lancaster led by Drew Brooks of Faith Partners.  Having local presenters trained on the Faith Partners evidence-based model will give GOAL the freedom to customize the F.A.I.T.H. Initiatives training to serve our community more effectively. GOAL is dedicated to bring light to those living in darkness and with it, a pathway to health.  I am grateful to have partners like you who care because we can’t do it alone. Thank you for coming alongside us with your hands, feet and funds to support GOAL as we work to impact our community with addiction prevention and sustainable recovery education.

To donate visit our website at or send a check in the enclosed envelope.  If you cannot give at this time, kindly remember GOAL Project on November 22nd for the Extraordinary GIVE Campaign.  A major donor will be matching your donation up to $10,000.  Please help us reach our goal of raising $20,000.

May you be richly blessed!
