A note from Jenks: I have been wanting to have the members of the Athenaeum see and hear about this place ever since I was at a meeting there a few months ago.

The Executive Director was fabulous in explaining the program, but it was the personal story from one of the "graduates" that was so uplifting and informative.

If the stars align we will go back to Amethyst Place on March 23 and have fun decorating an apartment. No heavy furniture lifting... Just hanging pictures, towels in the bath, plates etc in the cupboards. They have the stuff to select from for the project.

Find out more about Amethyst Place.
There is a great article from the February 2015 KCSTAR. In addition they have a list of needed items.
If you can come on the 24th maybe you could bring some toilet paper or cleaning supplies.
