Friends of Epworth
Founded in 1995, this dynamic group of volunteers is dedicated to helping the youth and families served by Epworth. The group's goals are: fundraising, volunteer service and the promotion of Epworth in the community.
- The Friends group - is a vital element in the organization and coordination of fundraising events, and they have provided volunteer leadership for the Pillar of Strength event since its initiation.
- The Adopt A Dorm program - "adopting" of two dorms on the main campus to provide monthly goodies, birthday treats, and ongoing support to the children in residential treatment.
- The Guardian Angel Fund - providing direct financial support for all the extras needed in a teen's life such as additional classes, prom clothes & summer camp.
- The Seeds of Hope Garden - The Friends of Epworth work side-by-side with youth from Epworth to fill garden boxes with soil and then plant vegetables, herbs and flowers in what they hope will produce a bounty of delicious things to eat.
With over 40 members actively involved, the Friends group usually meets the third Wednesday of each month at Epworth, with a summer break in June, July and August. For more information about the Friends of Epworth please call 314.918.3401.
