My Champions helped me focus on my career and goals. They told me that I can do anything I put my mind to. Building a Vocational plan will show me the steps on how to achieve my goals. – 2017 JFL Graduate Tyreese
Through your prayers, donations, and volunteer hours you have made an impact on so many people like 2017 Jobs for Life Graduate Tyreese.
Since his completion of the course earlier this year, which included developing his vocation plan, Tyreese has had a stellar year. He married, found his desired work as a full-time substitute teacher, started his own business as a flute tutor, and has been accepted to the Masters Program at Wilmington University!
Before Jobs for Life, Tyreese thought he would always struggle to survive and would never find work as a music teacher. He was focused on just getting by through working at a local buffet restaurant and a fitness center. Now, he is providing for his family, working his vocation plan to achieve his God-given purpose, and returns often as a speaker and volunteer to encourage other Jobs for Life students. He was even featured in national Jobs for Life communications!
Tyreese is breaking the cycle of poverty in his family and we’re so proud of the hard work he has put into following God’s plan for his life. We’re also so thankful you made it possible for Arise to be part of his story! Your year-end donation can continue to impact people like Tyreese and change the future for individuals, families, and our communities through all of our programs, events, and classes.

Thanks to the contributions and engagement of our donors and partners, we were able to reach more of our community through adding classes at the Dover Public Library through our Emerge program, begin our Embrace Afterschool Program, and add churches, businesses, and agencies to our growing list of resources and supporters.
But we’re not done yet! As part of our year end push, we’re asking you to help us meet our $140,000 goal to help us start 2018 strong. Would you consider donating today? Sharing with friends? Your community?

As Arise grows, it’s important that we have a “road map” to determine where we are going and how we will get there. We want the input of our volunteers because they interact with those we serve and have a unique perspective of what we do and why we do it.
If you have ever volunteered with Arise (or Grace for Dover) in any way, please complete our anonymous survey. It should take less than 5 minutes to complete. Create your survey with SurveyMonkey

On Friday, June 30th, we had a wonderful opportunity to reach the entire State of Delaware on Delaware 105.9. Executive Director Paige Baione spoke of upcoming events, our programs, and our mission. There was even some interesting discussion of funding on this last day of the 149th Delaware State Legislature and how the proposed budget cuts will effect our work. Listen to the recording here:
