Spring has Sprung!

We are very excited to be getting our hands dirty in the garden again after winter.  It is wonderful to see how when the sun is out the mood is lifted.  Our volunteer Garden Manager and residents are back in the garden with big plans for this summer.  Clients, residents, and volunteers are busy outside with their walks, soaking up the sun, and planting the first crops. Our lettuce will be the first fresh vegetable to be prepared in our kitchen for the residents to enjoy.  How could we make a big green salad better? By making it with greens the residents have grown themselves. 

 

Our House’s food program Esther’s Pantry continues to received high quality donations from New Seasons Market and Whole Foods on a weekly basis.  Because of these donations, among others, and the supplemental food from the Oregon Food Bank, we are making it possible for over 200+ monthly clients to take home more nutritious food.  However, there is still room to grow.

Annual Art Show

In March, we had our client/resident art show.  Many clients and residents showcased their work, and it became clear how important art therapy is in so many lives.  Participants could not wait to show off their work to community members and each other.  One of the clients wrote about his piece for the art show, “It really makes you think and be patient.  I had to search, find the right shapes and sizes, and try them out.  It is a very interesting way to se how far you’ve come along.  It helped me feel like I accomplished something.”

In April, we had a new Social Worker joining the NHCP program.

Also with Spring, comes the reopening of the garden.  Residents and clients are breathing fresh air, walking in the sunlight, and enjoying being outside with the beautiful weather and garden.
