Parker’s Grille & Tavern
Avon Lake, Ohio
75 people visited our volunteer showcase to discover the different ways they can become involved to help support the children of Blessing House. Our committees presented information and discussed various opportunities as everyone got their “passports” stamped as they traveled about the room. Thanks to our Board Members, Mary Herrick and Melanie McAllister, for organizing this event and helping us recruit more Blessing House “Friends!”

“Ban the Bruises”
A Symposium on Family Violence
We would like to thank the Leadership Lorain County Class of 2014, Genesis House, Lorain County Jobs and Family Services Adult Protective Services and Lorain County Children Services for all of your collaborative efforts in helping to stage the Ban the Bruises Family Violence Symposium on Thursday at DeLuca’s Place in the Park. 165 attendees learned more about family violence, ways they can help reduce family violence and resources available in the community to help victims.
We also would like to thank Michael Sheline from the Attorney General’s Victim Advocacy office in Columbus for being our keynote speaker and then for coming to visit Blessing House on Friday. We are already hearing from people who attended how they have taken information they learned and used it in both their personal and professional lives. Thanks to everyone for a hugely successful event.
