Valerie's House Ministry

( EStar Update 9-1-2021)


***Because of the current outbreak of the Delta variant, Valerie’s House has suspended in-person group meets for the next few weeks. Decisions will be made on a week-by-week basis, depending on the numbers.*** If you wish to sign up to donate a meal, as described below, please continue to do so.
Valerie’s House Families meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month here at Holy Trinity.  The evening always begins with a meal for the families and group volunteers.  We would like to sponsor these meals twice a month and are need of sponsors.  At this time, we are estimating that each meal is approximately $100.  We can have 1-4 sponsors each week (each sponsorship is $25).  There is a sign-up sheet and sponsorship forms at the Ministry Center in the narthex.  You can give these sponsorships in loving memory of someone or give them anonymously.  We are also in need of dessert items each group night.  If you would like to donate a cake, brownies, cookies, ice cream cups or other fun dessert, please sign up on the sheet as well—we need 4 kid-friendly dessert items each week.

Please prayerfully consider how you can assist in this very important ministry.

Beginning in August, a new outreach ministry – "Valerie’s House"

"Valerie’s House is the only organization of its kind in Southwest Florida with the sole mission of helping children grieve the loss of a loved one."

We will be meeting at Holy Trinity on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month (in the evening). They are solely dedicated to helping children grieve—because no child should grieve alone.  Valerie’s House kids and their caregivers meet weeknights twice a month—after playtime and dinner the children and parents break up into separate groups to work on their grief.  These support programs are designed to give children ages 4-19 and their families a safe place to share, grieve, and grow. **Valerie’s House is looking for volunteers to help at our site on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month.  In order to help out, you must complete a training and their next training is on Sat.
