Janet Heaton: A True Neighbor at Work
Neighbors at Work is more than just a Workforce Program, it’s also a ministry that promotes wellbeing. Our Healing Journey for Women group gathers every Monday night to help women not only build their careers but grow themselves as well – personally and spiritually.
Women come to share their struggles, successes and their life stories through the 12 Steps with Celebrate Recovery curricula. Most of our participants have been with us for years.
Many are now moms, have full-time jobs and are in healthier relationships. Through hard work, they’ve become better mothers, friends, and partners. Their communication and reading skills have improved drastically and all are better employees.
Janet Heaton is one of the reasons why Healing Journey has been so successful. She came to us eight years ago with the intention of volunteering. Since that day, she has ever so gently entered into loving relationships with our ladies.
Janet is sensitive, caring, accepting, giving of herself, and demonstrates Christ’s love to the ladies and their kids. She listens to their stories and then quietly moves into a relationship with them without being intrusive or demanding.
Thank you, Janet, for loving our ladies and kids well!
