What is Happening This Week 3/4 – 3/8/20

Community Helpers Weeks at ECDP
March 2 – 5 and
March 9 – 12
March brings ECDP’s Community Helpers weeks when we invite different people to come and teach our students about the jobs they do for the community. As part of our Community Helpers Weeks, the preschool does a community service project to teach our students that they can be community helpers too. This year we are having a Trike-A-Thon to benefit St. Jude’s Hospital. If you would like to make a contribution to St. Jude’s through the preschool, contact Beth McClure at 972-492-1371. We would love to have your support.

Disaster-Recovery Case Management Training
March 10-12 from 9 am to 5 pm
Highland Park UMC
As the North Texas Conference continues to assess the needs of its neighbors in their long-term recovery from the October 2019 tornadoes, we are partnering with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to bring Disaster Case Management Volunteer training to the area.
If you or anyone you know would like to become a Disaster Response Case Manager Volunteer, we invite you to attend our training 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 10-12 at Highland Park UMC. Below is a brief description of this training in hopes you will have the information you need to consider how God can use you in this way:
This baseline training is an intensive program providing in-depth understanding of the foundations, principles and processes of disaster case management.
Relational emphasis is on communicating in a manner that promotes mutually trusting and respectful partnerships with survivors in order to impart practical information, to bridge potential cultural barriers, to develop achievable recovery plans and to advocate effectively for resources in order to address verified recovery needs. Participants will gain an understanding of the sequence of delivery, the importance of unduplicated resources and effort, and appropriate information sharing as well as protection of client confidential information. Attendees will be able to anticipate recovery goal achievement and case closure.
If you believe this program is something you’d like to be a part of, register now, space is limited.
