June F.U.N group event with SafeHaven of Tarrant County was blessed with lots of fun and love!!

Our leaders Nora, Robin, Lisa, Valerie,Monica and Heather guided the children through crafting a windsock with a patriotic theme and played games.

We are always so humbled by the “Chicks” who come out to use their talents to help break the cycle of abuse and provide these children with much needed attention and encouragement.

Please visit our calendar of events and join us next time. We would love to have you serve with us!! We are changing the world one workshop at a time!!!

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!!

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.

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.
