Having been recently hired for a year's contract, it's both exciting and nerve-wrecking to imagine where this journey might take me and who I might meet and how we may travel together.
"The goal of the project is to increase those supported by EAFWR's sense of citizenship, the amount of informal supports they receive from neighbours, and to help build longer term friendships than those typically built in tranditional programs and services."
My first steps: what is already happening in community? Who already buys into this? How can they help?
As I sit in this uncertainty, I trust the process and know that if I keep the focus on what gifts and talents already exisit in those we are focusing on, and those in the community at large, I can't get too far off track.
