Members of the Bainbridge Lions Club welcomed Stephanie Sorrelle as guest and speaker for their late March meeting.  Mrs. Sorrelle provided a brief overview of the residential program offered by Still Waters, and told of various other services made available by the Still Waters program.

For displaced women who become residents of Still Waters, the basic 90-day program provides them with support and encouragement to continue their education and develop job skills.  Still Waters is a faith-based program that helps residents fulfill their potential and gain independence, enabling them to transition into being productive members of the community.  Job skills development may include such activities as a mock interview, which is valuable preparation for women who have little or no experience in the job market.  It is expected that each woman will leave with an income to support herself as well as a safe place to live.

From time to time, Still Waters may also supply items to meet temporary needs for members of the community, including blankets, clothing, hygiene bags or personal care items, along with food.  They are committed to utilizing all resources, and make use of all items donated to them.  They maintain a resource list to facilitate connecting demand with supply.  Through the many and varied pursuits and activities by persons involved with the group, they build long-term relationships throughout the community.
