Forum 6.3 - Responses to the Political Community
I'm really encouraged by work done by UMW supported institutions that offer after school programs, programs to support parents, and help with adjudicated youth. In NC, the work being done by Methodist Home for Children, for example, is making strides toward a restorative justice approach to troubled children. I also think that school resource officers are a huge asset to kids. I know several who work daily to counsel students and support them in efforts to make better decisions and straighten out their lives. Our church has a mission to pray for all law enforcement officers we signed up for specific ones. I made sure to sign up for the SROs. I hold them and their work in my heart.
