Drink for a Cause!

at West Side Brewing


West Side Brewing has kindly agreed to donate 20% of all proceeds during that time to the BLOC Ministries Redeemed Home.

Details:
Join BLOC Ministries at West Side Brewing for a fundraiser to support BLOC Ministries. BLOC (Believing and Living One Christ) Women’s Ministry recently opened a transitional home, Redeemed Home, and a program designed to serve women survivors of trafficking, prostitution and addiction. Our goal is to create a supportive environment that leads to self-sufficiency. The funds raised will be donated to the Redeemed Transitional Home Program to help build a place where these women can get their lives back on track.

Bring this flyer and give it to the bartender or show it on your mobile device when you close out your tab to make sure that 20% of the proceeds are donated to BLOC Ministries.

If you can’t make it from 6-9pm, stop in any time from noon - midnight and show this flyer to help raise money.

CHANGE Court Mentor Training: Support Trafficking Victims in Cincinnati

By Judge Russell


Have you ever wondered how you could help an individual who has been trafficked? Become a CHANGE Court Mentor.

Details:
When a trafficked person is arrested in Ohio, they now have the option of CHANGE Court - a 2 year period of intensive supervision probation. Under Judge Russell, the team helps participants overcome addiction, get counseling, find independent housing, jobs, and reconnects them to their families if they so choose. Successful participants get their criminal charges expunged, offering them a true second chance.

Commitment: CHANGE Court mentors commit to model healthy relationships, meeting with their mentee for a minimum of one hour, twice a month for 2 years.

Please RSVP if interested in attending the training by contacting Susie Tweddell: Phone 414-339-0783 / Email setweddell@gmail.com
