May Days

Here's what we have been up to in May!

  • We've started to have a national and international influence! 10 women in Scotland, one an actual Scot, went through the Libera model. We also taught the Libera model to a Russian exchange student. Our former President, Nnenna Minimah, who took a new job in Louisiana, plans to implement Libera groups there. And finally, a Native American woman from New York is coming to shadow our Executive Director in June for two weeks, to possibly take the model to NY and potentially her reservation in Florida.
  • Through the tremendous generosity of Premier Chevrolet Buick GMC, http://www.premiergmofwv.com we have purchased a second Libera bus, which will double our Libera meeting space and help us to cover the state more easily and quickly!! 
  • We started a third new teen Libera group
  • We started a group at the Bartlett House Nitor apartments
  • We have scheduled a Martinsburg one day workshop for June 18
  • We organized and are hosting a Mental Health First Aid training for 11 Libera Listeners

  • We have finished up traveling to all 55 counties of West Virginia at least twice!
  • We have done private counseling for teens
  • We have helped two women transition out of physically abusive living situations

  • We are working on a training manual for Libera Listeners
