camp heaven '09 counselors needed! Planning for Camp Heaven 2009 is officially underway, and we are very much in need of some excited and committed people to serve as counselors. Camp Heaven is our biggest program of the year, serving around 100 kids for 7 weeks of fun, learning, and spiritual growth. The success of camp depends on a handful of individuals who volunteer as counselors. The counselors come together for 2 weeks of training, followed by camp, during which time they live and work together. The counselor experience is a once-in-alifetime chance to serve and grow in the nation's capital. Counselor Jeff with April, Camp Heaven 2008 Training for counselors runs from June 8 to June 28, and camp goes from June 29 to August 7. If you would like more information or want to apply to be a counselor, please contact Jeff Kim (, 202-548-4021). thank you fall 2008 volunteers!!

We have spent January painting, furnishing, and equipping the space, and are more than excited to move in and begin using it. children at the Gardens, excited for our new space! Being present at Potomac Gardens is very important to us. For several years, we have been looking for ways to expand our physical space to increase our capacity to run quality programs. Furthermore, this location allows us to be within the community we serve, so that we can literally meet people where they are. We are still in need of several items to finish off the units. For information on how you can help, please contact Mary (mary@, 202-548-4021). Group Opportunities Looking for an opportunity to serve with people you know?
