SEPTEMBER is National Recovery Month, a national observance to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the nation’s strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery possible.
On September 9 each year, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) recognizes International Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Awareness Day as a reminder that there is no safe amount of alcohol during pregnancy. FASD refers to an array of lifelong physical, cognitive, and behavioral problems caused by prenatal alcohol exposure. These can range from mild to severe and contribute to a variety of issues such as learning disabilities, speech and language delays, visual and hearing problems, problems with vital organs, and social challenges throughout a person’s life. Prenatal alcohol exposure is a leading preventable cause of birth defects and neurodevelopmental abnormalities in the United States. FASD is preventable.
As September opens, the last team of the season is working to complete construction of Myrn’s house; a residence for two women who want to follow Jesus into freedom from addiction. The mobile residence is fully operational and waiting for clients. Eagles Nest, a separate home nearby is finished lived in by a family ready to welcome children of enrolled mothers.
Eagles Wings Ministries is now accepting referrals from churches who want to support a woman / mother in seeking freedom from addiction. Referral packets and releases are available to pastors or recovery leaders upon request. Also available are applications and work descriptions for Life Skills Coach and Executive Director. Phone 907-629-4200 for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Eagles Wings Ministries is grateful for the many work teams who have served during this construction season of 2022—and all the previous years—to get behind this “God-sized project”. Thank you to all who have given sacrificially of yourtime and labor; your prayers and financial support. We’re grateful and blessed by your friendship and encouragement.
