Annual Making the Difference Benefit Banquet
September 22, 2017
14th Annual Banquet
Broken Chains Ministry welcomes the community to celebrate its fourteenth annual "Making the Difference" banquet scheduled Friday, September 22 at 6:30 p.m. at Guys Party Center of Akron.
This year, we’re celebrating some milestone projects including Broken Chains Ministry’s Home Ownership Program and the official launch of Lydia’s Home, a revolutionary recovery home for women overcoming opioid addiction and incarceration in Summit County.
Hear personal stories from clients who have moved from lives of incarceration, addiction and darkness, to a life of faith, hope and work, guided by our team.
This life transformation is achieved through a unique faith-based, five-part Restorative Justice model that includes restitution and workforce development, and is made possible through generous cash and in-kind donations, sponsors, advocates, volunteers and the collaborative support of the Summit County Reentry Network.
