Positive momentum continues with The Tomball Benevolence Network (TBN) under the leadership of Karen Guiles. Informative meetings were held in January with Lone Star College, Tomball ISD, and Harris County Precinct 4, resulting in their becoming supporting TBN members. Through these meetings terrific resources have been uncovered and then added to GRACE, the computer software system that retains all the information for caseworkers. Lone Star College is a gold mine of educational resources for the community, and TBN is in the planning stages with LSC in a pilot project to reach out and assist young people who have difficulty ‘launching’ in life.
Also, Karen recently introduced TBN at the Tomball Lion’s Club. She met Mary Trenkle at that meeting and now Mary is a TEAM ministry volunteer!
Then on February 7th, TBN welcomed a prominent Tomball automotive and tire store as its very first TBN Service Provider! Tomball United Methodist Church and Windwood Church have officially joined the Network as well.
Karen continues to focus on meeting with TEAM supporting churches, as well as businesses, to share the Network details and bring them on board as TBN service providers and/or members. She will no doubt knock on your office door soon!!! Or, you can email Karen to schedule a time to meet. Trust us, she won’t turn you down!
