Mini Grant SenseMaker Project Story or Micro-Narrative

  • Grant Project: In the Garden with Tabernacle
  • Description: A project that is reoccurring
  • Role: I participated in a reoccurring mini grant activity program and I received a mini grant for an idea I had

Our community garden is flourishing. One of our regular volunteers who is partly responsible is Frank, who volunteered for about 2 months every Saturday. He also made himself available for other handyman jobs around our church to keep busy. He saved up the money he earned as he was trying to get housing. Recently, we found out he was able to find permanent housing and get off the streets. He still does not have personal transportation and his new home is not on a bus line where he can continue to work in the garden. His energy, hard work, and enthusiasm will be missed. This is truly a “Praise Report”. We are proud of him for working toward his goal of ending his homelessness and finding a home.
