April Update:

Chicktime April was simply…..Incredible!!!! There was JOY  everywhere!!!

No Easter celebration would be complete with out games and an Easter Egg Hunt!!

FEMA Corp volunteers along with assistance from the Fort Worth Chicktime chapter organized and led all of the activities for this evenings’ event with SafeHaven. They are a remarkable group of young adults (18-24) who travel as a group to different project sites and serve to support FEMA in various capacities. We were truly blessed to have their group in the DFW area for the past few months to assist with the needs of SafeHaven. The children had a great deal of fun with the volunteers. Thank you FEMA Corp and our Chicktime members for helping to make these events successful.

Chicktime Ft. Worth will be right back at it on June 13th, 2017. Please join us!!

How we spent our Valentine’s Day evening…Spending time with my Chicktime chapter volunteering with SafeHaven of Tarrant County’s FUN Group event. We helped Ms. Sandra who led the activities with the children tonight. There were games, movies, prizes and grab bags for all of the children. So Thankful to the volunteers from FEMA corp, the 5 new Chicktime members and my co-leader Patricia Gonzalez-Grimaldos who took time out of their schedules to bless these children by just being there. We had a blast tonight. Just another example of LOVE!!!

Chicktime Ft. Worth will not meet in March but we will be back in April!!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Chicktime January has been canceled.

We look forward to seeing you all in February =)

Thank you to everyone who attended our November workshop at SafeHaven!

We will be back in January and we hope YOU will join us!

 

Chicktime Ft. Worth will not meet on November 8th as previously announced. Please make plans to join as at our holiday party on November 21st!!

 

July News

 

Mark your calendar now for our Chicktime Fort Worth event at SafeHaven of Tarrant County’s Orientation.

The Fort Worth Chapter is excited to announce that we have a new charity partner, Safe Haven of Tarrant County.

SafeHaven is the largest and most comprehensive agency in Tarrant County providing services at no cost to domestic violence victims.  SafeHaven provides 24-hour care at two emergency shelters in Arlington and Fort Worth to families fleeing violent situations. The holistic shelters provide a comprehensive continuum of care for the women and children who would otherwise be forced to remain in dangerous situations.

At this time, SafeHaven is in need of volunteers to assist/facilitate activities at a monthly support group for women and children at their transitional housing program.  The event occurs on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at Pantego Bible Church and we would be working with the children while the parents attend the group. The support group takes place from 6:00-8:00 pm and SafeHaven we could utilize roughly 5-8 volunteers each month.

For the safety of their clients, SafeHaven requires all volunteers to complete a volunteer application and a criminal background check,  If you will are interested in attending the support group event at Pantego church, please sign up on the Fort Worth Events Calendar on the Chicktime website.   I will forward you the application to fill out (if you have not already complete one) and then fax back to Safe Haven.  I will forward additional information (directions, contact person, etc) about 5 days before the event.

If anyone has any questions feel free to contact Denise at denise.fwchicktime@gmail.com or fwchicktime@gmail.com.

We look forward to meeting and working with you!

Patricia and I very excited about this opportunity and wanted to share the information with women of our chapter.  Our goal is to begin working with the support group at their July meeting so in order be prepared, SafeHaven has asked our group to attend an orientation on June 18th from 9am to 12pm at their Fort Worth office.  If you will be able to attend the June 18th orientation, please sign up on the Fort Worth Events Calendar on the Chicktime website by Jun 17th.

 

If you are unable to attend the June orientation, there will be another orientation in Mid-August if that works better for some of the group.

 

We hope that many of you will be able to attend so you can learn more about this wonderful organization and the various ways they are blessing our community.

We are in the midst of re-grouping and re-building the chapter leadership as our founding leader Sophie Duprat has decided to step down at this time.  Although, we are sad to see Sophie leave us, we Thank her for her work with starting and maintaining the chapter for the last 3 years and we are excited for her new lifes’ journey and wish her every success in her endeavors. we are excited for her new lifes’ journey and wish her every success in her endeavors.

 

With this leadership change, we as a chapter are working with ACH Charities to reorganize our event schedule and introduce new opportunities of service for our chapter.  During the months of March, and May, Patricia Grimaldos and I will be meeting with the director of Volunteer Services and with the leaders of 3 – 4 areas of service within the ACH Charities.  We hope to bring to you a list of new opportunities where the Fort Worth Chicktime chapter will be able to assist the needs of this organization.  We want to ensure that there are always opportunities for Chicktime volunteers.

 

We would also like to bring together the women of the Fort Worth Chicktime chapter, as I know for myself, I have not met several of the women that have signed up to be a part of this chapter so we are planning some sort of fellowship gathering in the next few weeks so we can meet or re-connect with everyone and answer any concerns/questions you have.  We planned an event on April 16th but unfortunately, several of the volunteers were unavailable.  We will plan for another meeting with everyone near the end of May or beginning of June 2016.

 

Please stay tuned to email, the Chicktime Website and our Facebook page FortWorth Chicktime for updates on chapter news and events.

 

In the interim, we ask for your patience and continued prayers for the remaining leaders, the Fort Worth Chapter and the entire Chicktime organization as a whole.
