“We have a great relationship with the Phoenix Center, that’s the mental health community here in Rochester. We have three events a year with them. We do a prom gown sale and all the gowns are sold for $5 a piece. The director brings the women up and they pick out a gown, have a girls day out, go to lunch. And then the next week we have a prom. Patty from Patty’s Beauty Shop in Beaver comes and does hair and nails for them. It’s wonderful.
One of the things I always hoped was that the people who came to receive our services would be a part of those services, and they are now. We’re having a new member class of people who’ve joined the church [Faith Community United Methodist Church in Rochester] after meeting us through our community outreach.”
