Young Children Plus a Brand-New Playground Equals Sheer Joy at The Mission of Yahweh

Young Children Plus a Brand-New Playground Equals Sheer Joy at The Mission of Yahweh

Last November, Janice S. McNair and the McNair Family donated $50,000 to fund the construction of a new playground at the Mission of Yahweh.  Due to a few delays from the COVID epidemic, construction was delayed somewhat; but recently the ribbon on the new space was cut, and it was dedicated to the 125 women and children who call Mission of Yahweh home. In addition to the McNairs, Janelle and Greg Reid and the Reid Family Foundation participated in the construction of a new playground that will bring joy to children for years to come.

Executive Director of The Mission, Richard Hill, welcomed over 100 guests to witness and enjoy the ribbon cutting which was led by Cal and Hannah McNair and Janelle and Greg Reid.  Guests were invited to stay for a fajita cookout, music and games for the children.

The Mission of Yahweh is a faith-based shelter that has been empowering, enriching and restoring the lives of homeless women and children and provides outreach services to low-income communities since 1961.
