You can also raise awareness by hosting a drive and collecting items for Bags of Hope.Tell your co-workers, friends and family about the ministry!

Bags of Hope has been getting tons of donations. THANK YOU to all the groups and churches who have donated.
We are currently in need of:
12 oz Conditioner
12 or 16oz Lotion
Hair brushes/elastics
Deodorant
Baby wipes
Nail polish
Chapsticks
Trail Mix 

 **All Items must be New & Full Size

A creative way that people have been collecting items is by asking friends and family to bring the donations to their Birthday Parties rather than gifts.. Let us know if you would like to do this too! We can meet up or you can drop off the items to my church at: 47 Adams Ave, Saugus, MA or EGC at: 2 San Juan St, Boston.

Whether we are case managers or counselors or pastoral care providers, so many of us find ourselves accompanying people whose lives are changing in some way.  Change is a process, a living and breathing process, that has its own distinct stages. People move through these stages and make decisions about change at their own pace. But sometimes people can get stuck, held back by their own stuff.  And they could use some support. Steve Chisholm, a professor at North Shore Community College, offered a wonderful Conversations presentation on Motivational Interviewing as a method of doing just that.

Motivational Interviewing or “MI” is intended to invite people to enhance their own internal motivation to change and to get beyond some of their own resistance. As Steve says, “MI helps to get people unstuck.” To introduce this model of support, we are offering a 5-minute video in which Steve briefly provides a summary of MI (Short Video Link). And if that video peaks your interest, here is a link to a 20-minute video in which Steve expands on these themes (Full Video Link). We are so grateful to Steve for his work, and we hope that his insights assist you in your work.

About “Conversations For Caring”
