Our transitional house has a new name—Glory House! Many new improvements were just completed -painting, new ceiling tiles, and new flooring was donated by Cloister Flooring for the bedrooms. Courtyard Café collected donations that paid for new flooring for the kitchen and cabinets. We are excited for the next mom that comes to our "new" home!

Haggai 2:9—" The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,", says the Lord Almighty "And in this place, I will grant peace" declares the Lord Almighty.

Please pray that the next mom will experience God's love and peace and that all Glory will be given to God!

The expansion project for Warehouse916 is almost complete!  There have been so many volunteers helping with this project, we don't have enough room to name you all!  This new expansion will help us develop our Cocalico Food Pantry Client Choice program.

We now have 2,000 sq ft of food storage space with commercial refrigerators and freezers just like the grocery store.  We hope this will be a better resource for residents who are in need throughout the Cocalico community.

The Cocalico Food Pantry's Client Choice program is open to residents of the Cocalico School District who have met with our social worker and fall within the income guidelines set by the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.  If you are in need of assistance, schedule your appointment with REAL Life Community Services today 717-336-7797.
Power Packs Registration now open— Cocalico School District families that qualify for free and reduced lunches also qualify for Power Packs, a weekly educational program with a healthy recipe, the main ingredients to make that recipe, and a couple of staple food items.

Our youth development team has been busy connecting with youth this summer!  From handing out hotdogs at the park every Tuesday night to throwing parties and hanging out with teens at the Lighthouse Youth Center!  Using the CAMP Curriculum to develop mentoring relationships, the Momentum team has really gelled and kids who are coming out leave filled with laughter and joy.  Our hope is to fill the Lighthouse back up with God's love, laughter, and lessons this Fall! 
Saturday, October 16, REAL Life Community Services will be joining many other businesses downtown Denver from 9-11 am to celebrate all that our community has to offer.  There will be pumpkin painting, craft displays, and food & games to play.  Come to the Lighthouse Community Center to get your face painted by some of our Momentum volunteers & children ages 10 and under can get a free balloon.
