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 “adopts” 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 provides direct financial support for all the extras needed in a teen’s life such as additional classes, prom clothes, and 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.
