One of our newest programs at Lubbock Impact, the Family of the Week ministry is designed to take relationship to the next level. A family is invited to dine in a separate dining room and given a catered meal. The hand-picked family is encouraged to fill 10 seats at a beautifully set table. Extended family, friends, mentors or favorite Lubbock Impact volunteers have joined them at their meal.
The goal of this meal is to make the family feel special and honored and to gain more insight into their needs. At one of the first meals, the young son of a single mother entered the room and said, “Why is this so nice? Is this for us?” And the mother beamed with pride when she was able to answer,
“Yes, it is because they love us.”
