What Is Life-Group Outreach

Blackshear/O. L. Price Ex-Student Association DBA (During Business As) Life-Group Outreach is a Program intended to reach the community youth, adults and families that are struggling with life related issues.

Life-Group Outreach went to work as a coalition with The Faith Based Community, LifeSteps’ Williamson Council on Alcohol and Drugs, members of the technology community and people in the neighborhood to assess the most effective way to provide economic development and other services needed by the families living in Taylor and surrounding areas.

Upon completion of our research and surveys, it was revealed that the main concerns and problems in the community was a high rate of drug related crimes, provety, and a number of youth having problems with truancy related issues.

Life-Group Outreach working as a coalition plans to accomplish it’s purpose by serving as a gateway to bring people, resources and family services together while we address the humanitarian needs of Taylor and the surrounding communities.

Life-Group Outreach is always in need of volunteers to serve in a number of differenct areas such as mentoring, tutoring and various other areas of community involved services.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED WITH LIFE-GROUP OUTREACH

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

There is strength in numbers.  The more people we have working the more we can accomplish as we turn our attention and focus back to valuing the community.

Currently Life-Group Outreach serving as an advocate for LifeSteps Neighborhood Conference Committee Program is reaching out in need of volunteers for the Program.

What is NCC?

The Neighborhood Conference Committee (NCC) of Williamson County consists of local citizens in Taylor providing services to students who are first-time truant offenders, The student and their family are referred to NCC by the school district.  the family meets with a panel of volunteers to establish the root of the truancy problem.  Together the student, family, and the NCC panel develop a positive action plan.  NCC also provides an avenue for expressing the community’s concern to the student to help the student generate a sense of responsiblity and opportunities for personal growth and development.

The Williamson County Financial Stability Coalition, a group of six organizations working to expand the hours and number of free tax preparation sites throughout Williamson County, is hoping to double or triple the number of low income families in Taylor that 1.) get their taxes done for free and 2.) get all the tax credits that are due to them. The end result is that families will have more money to put food on the table or pay their utility bill. But in order to be successful it is going to take A LOT of volunteers who are willing to help out in service to our low income neighbors. Would you mind taking a look at the attached flyer and see if this is a volunteer opportunity that you might be interested in helping out with? Additional information, plus the volunteer sign up form, can be found online at www.wilcofreetaxprep.org. (And if you know of others that might be interested, please feel free to pass on this email!) Thank you.
