Territorial Pathway of Hope Achievement Award Presented to Fond du Lac

Congratulations to the Fond du Lac Corps who was presented with the Territorial Pathway of Hope Achievement Award last week at the Divisional Social Services Conference.

Annually, the Central Territory awards recognition to Corps in each division demonstrating excellence in the implementation of Pathway of Hope and its provision of services to families.

The Fond du Lac Corps describes themselves as the team that God assembled to implement Pathway of Hope that allows them to leverage the best outcomes for each Pathway of Hope family.  During 2016 the Fond du Lac Corps enrolled 10 new families and had 5 families successfully complete!  To best support these families in their endeavors the Fond du Lac Corps works as a team and has developed a network of community support they can call on to support the families.  Finally, the Corps congregation has embraced Pathway of Hope and eagerly taken on the role of praying for the families, providing tangible gifts to the families and graciously welcome families to Corps programs.
