WOW DEMS General Member Meeting 11/9/17

Our guest speaker is Mindy Minor, Program Director for Girls Embracing Mothers. Girls Embracing Mothers, Inc. is a Dallas based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. GEM’s primary focus is to empower girls in grades K-12 with mothers in prison to break the cycle of incarceration and lead successful lives with vision and purpose.
 
Mindy Minor is the Program Director for Girls Embracing Mothers. In this role, Mindy oversees all aspects of GEM’s largest operational programs – Pearl and Diamond – designed to empower girls with mothers in prison to break the cycle of incarceration and lead successful lives with vison and purpose. As the first Program Director for GEM, Mindy directs initiatives aimed at helping mothers and daughters to fulfill the meaning of their own creation by using their stumbling blocks as stepping stones for a brighter tomorrow. Just two years after GEM launched, Mindy joined Girls Embracing Mothers in March 2015 as a volunteer. Over the next two and half years, she has helped build the organization’s program and advocacy work. Mindy engages her work fueled by the desire to see the ideals of truth and justice actualized in the lives and conditions of every young girl she encounters. She has worked extensively managing community and organizational relationships across North East Texas that seek to challenge the systems and institutions that perpetuate inequity.
 
Mindy is also a daughter and a mother who understands the beauty and value of a healthy mother-daughter bond and how essential it is in breaking the damaging cycles we face today. In her free time, Mindy enjoys reading, high-spirited fun and adventuring just about anywhere.
 
 
Our service project will be with The Samaritan Inn in McKinney.
 
WOW Dems giving back.
 
Samaritan Inn in McKinney is more than a homeless shelter. It teaches self-sufficiency and life skills to individuals and families while allowing people to gain dignity and independence. On a typical night, approximately 160 people sleep at the Inn, of which 60 are children.
 
Our Community Service project this month is to collect enough money to feed the residents of the Inn for one meal, and the opportunity to serve this meal and interact with the residents.
 
Our goal is collecting $300 for dinner to be served on Sunday December 10.
 
Please join us in providing this amazing gift!
