The Oaks Ministry is pleased to announce the appointment of Dawn Grieco to the position of Program Director. Dawn brings many much-needed skills to the organization as we look at long-term growth and sustainability of the Oaks Ministry.
She has been leading Celebrate Recovery Inside at Chester County Prison for a number of years in order to help create a bridge for those returning to the community. Recently, she completed the Correctional Ministries certificate program out of Wheaton College’s Billy Graham Center specializing in Re-Entry Services. Re-Entry is not just for prisoners but also for women that find themselves in a transitional state of life and need help to re-enter society which is what we strive to do as well.
Dawn will be responsible for taking the existing program and expanding the offerings for our residents, collaborating with other churches and nonprofits, and raising funds to help execute an ambitious strategic plan.
The mission of The Oaks Ministry is to provide transitional housing with a faith-based structured program to help women in need find hope, healing and restoration. Although this ministry is based in Oxford, Pa, women from any area may apply. For more information, visit our website at http://www.oxfordoaksministry.com
Just today I received a call from a local lady that is looking for housing. After explaining to her who we are and that our program is not just housing, I directed her to our website to visit our policy and procedure page to discover if this program is what she is looking for. By the end of our conversation, she responded with. “Thank you for taking the time to talk with me, you just gave me hope”.
Thats what we do, we provide HOPE, HEALING and RESTORATION in a Christ-centered residential environment for Women in need and we could not do it without your faithful support.
Your faithfulness has enabled us to serve over 40 women in the past 6 years. Because of your financial support and prayers, we were able to hire Dawn as Program Manager to help us with the daily activities of managing this Ministry. Dawn not only is a super support system to me personally but also has skills and giftings that I do not have. She is a gift from God to take us to a new level of growth.
In God we will always trust and to Him we give the glory!
