Melissa Freed and two of her three children recently moved into the DH. Melissa grew up in Lancaster County and has been raising her children in the New Holland area since 2012. Ace is a multi-talented Junior at Cocalico, attending CTC for healthcare. She saved a student's life the first day and was elected Student Ambassador! Ace loves music and her 3 year old brother, Kailon. Kailon loves to read and color. He also loves to sing and play with his two sisters, Ace and Nevaeh. Melissa works Full Time for Lighthouse Vocational Services and part time at the YMCA, both in New Holland. They LOVE their new HOME at the Declaration House!
We welcome Melissa and her family to our community and are so thankful to all who have helped them to move in and feel at home.
We are ONLY $52,500 short of having the Declaration House Project fully funded!. Donations of $250 or more made before December 31, 2019 will be acknowledged on the Donor Wall in the hallway of the Declaration House. Please prayerfully consider what you can give to help us make this project a complete success!

REAL wants to invite you and your organization to partner with us. Annually, we hold two banquets a year and 1-2 other special events for which we need sponsorship. In place of coming to you prior to each event, we would like you to consider adding us to your 2020 budget.
As a partner, you would be recognized depending on the level at which you choose to join us.
Executive Partner - $5,000 a year or $1,250/quarter. This level would garner mention at all REAL Life Community Services events, reserve a table at each banquet and put the partner's name on our website and Facebook page.
Corporate Partner - $2,500 a year, or $625 /quarter. This level would earn the partner mention at all REAL Life Community Events and reserve a table at each banquet.
Community Partner - $1,200 or $100 a month. This level is partnership in both banquets and would reserve a table at each event for that partner.
Please consider these options in your 2020 Fiscal Budgets. We appreciate your support!
Former Philadelphia Eagles' kicker David Akers went to the NFL Pro Bowl six times and was inducted into the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame. But his career was not always so rosy. Early on, he was cut from three teams and worked jobs as a substitute teacher and waiter to make ends meet. Eventually he was signed to the Philadelphia Eagles and started his storied career.
Meet & Greet Tickets Available! Now is your opportunity to meet David Akers, take a photo, and have your memorabilia signed! (Limit one signed item per person).
Kickers in the NFL have to be mentally tough. They routinely have the weight of the win or loss on their shoulders. They may only have one chance in a game to get it right. Hear Akers speak on how pain, perseverance, perspective, and priorities helped him win in spite of failures.
Akers lived his faith on the field and in the locker room for over 15 years in the NFL. Now he's an NFL announcer, author of the book Winning in Spite Of, and a licensed minister. He credits his faith for helping him turn hard times into personal growth and increased impact.
The country and the church are aging. Older generations make up a large portion of the population, especially in Lancaster County, and have skills, resources, and needs. Learn to better engage with and minister to aging populations within and outside of your congregation.
