So much excitement has been buzzing here at SO WHO Enterprises, Inc.! After months of cleaning, painting and redecorating, we have officially moved into our new office. Thanks to a generous paint donation from Dunn’s and Edwards and the support of the First Christian board, we have been able to successfully transform the office’s former nursery look into a more contemporary working space. We are looking forward to having our grand opening some time in October, and obviously the entire congregation is welcome. We will keep you posted.
Thank you, FCC! Muchos gracias!
As a small nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, we rely on the heartfelt support of people like you to provide assistance to children and their families who are experiencing unforeseen crisis. In June, we received the sad news that a mother that we’ve been working with over a year passed away due to a drug overdose. Her only relative, an aunt, voluntarily stepped in to care for her surviving six children ranging in ages from 3 to 16. As an undocumented person, she instantly faced housing challenges. We reached out to you, First Christian, to help us help this family remain united by getting a bigger living space. You exceeded our expectations by wholeheartedly donating over $800. Thanks to you, the family is off to a rough but healing fresh start. The family and SO WHO are very grateful for you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Full Steam Ahead!
Our mission is to strengthen the lives of youth and young adults as well as those who support them through resiliency-based character education, mentoring, leadership, professional development, and supportive services. We believe very strongly that this can only be accomplished through collaborative efforts. We are excited about several new collaborations with our community friends at Lynn Community School where we will be kicking off our mentoring program in the fall. We are also excited to be a part of a trail-blazing federally funded pilot program with New Mexico Workforce Solutions. We have the unique opportunity to offer jobs to youth aged 16-24 who are not enrolled in school but need basic life and work skills. Similarly, ahead of the recent front page article in the Las Cruces Sun-News, we have launched our first ever digital magazine aimed at bringing awareness about the unique professional needs and talents of 17-25 year olds in our region. Donna will send you a link by e-mail to access the debut edition. Lastly, we are super excited to be in discussion with Jack LaSage and young community artists about having an intergenerational arts event! Stay tuned for more information.
