Due to COVID-19, Brenda Jean's Sober Living Facility scaled back on community outreach events. However, in June 2021, we started supporting Smile Makers Mobile Dentistry of Michelle Juanatas Bowens, D.D.S. and the Church Without Walls ministry to serve the homeless. Individuals are given as much food items as they can carry. Other services available are hot meals and showers, housing assistance, medical, dental, and veterinary medicine. Brenda Jean's Food Pantry now commits to the Church Without Walls event every third Thursday of each month.
Brenda Jean's Sober Living Facility increased the number of student participants in the virtual internship programs (49 college and university students), served 3,882 individuals with our Food Pantry, and distributed 12 meals (many others unaccounted for) through our Soup Kitchen.
