Hello to All Friends of Julia’s,
As you probably know the Julia Greeley Home has been on hiatus. Sometimes people joke that the word “hiatus” is code for “We’re not sure we’re coming back,” but for us, that was never in doubt.
I am happy to announce that this August we officially re-open Julia’s program in metro Denver. We are moving into a large residential-sized home which we will share with a great organization, Shannon’s Hope, Inc., which welcomes women in crisis pregnancies.
This home is really beautiful, and large enough to operate our two programs independently, though we plan to share some staff and program materials. In the next days and weeks we will be telling you more about our new Friends at Shannon’s Hope.
We will also be reaching out to our volunteers who over the past six months offered their talents and time to help us with our mission: to give Julia’s women the job and life skills and spiritual support to recover their dignity and become self sufficient.
Other volunteers and donors have already stepped forward to contribute supplies and household items. We know there are many more of you who are waiting to find out what you can do to help us, and we will let you know as soon as we get settled in.
Finally, for the many people who ask, we are still pursuing a permanent campus in the Denver area. There are many “moving parts” to get into sync and we keep working away, confident that all will work out for the best. I’m not worried. I have put the Julia Greeley mission in the hands of St. Joseph, who was the best protector and guide possible for Jesus and His Mother, and it’s inspirational to see how he has led the Julia Greeley Home from our beginnings, to our exciting re-opening in August, and all the way through our hiatus, and now into the future!
More soon, so please keep checking back, our email is there for your questions and ideas:firstname.lastname@example.org . And when the time and place is right for you to donate, we hope you will consider the Julia Greeley Home. We appreciate your support of all kinds, including your time, ideas and expertise. Most of all, please keep us in your prayers, and I am keeping you in mine,
Father Regis Scanlon O.F.M.Cap, Founder and president, Julia Greeley Home, Inc.
