Lancaster County School Meals Round Up

Schools may now serve free meals to all children 18 and under. The Pennsylvania Department of Education on Monday sent a letter to every school district in Pennsylvania announcing that the federal government has given PA flexibility in designating “open sites.” This would allow school districts to immediately begin serving free meals to all children 18 and under in the community.

MHA Caring For Our Wounded

Many individuals within faith-based communities experience emotional pain. Sometimes, people come already wounded. Some individuals may even experience thoughts of suicide; invisible to see. This presentation will help you identify the warning signs of suicide, as well as address simple methods of communicating to hurting individuals – and how to de-escalate heated situations.

Although the presentation will cater to church pastors, clergy and staff for crisis management of potential critical situations in church communities, ANYONE who experiences frequent demands for their support & services are welcome to attend and learn.
