Passages Honored as June 2018 Ministry of the Month
107.1 KSLT/KLMP, 97.9 The Breeze, and Culver's have chosen Passages for their Ministry of the Month. The Ministry of the Month program is a blessing provided through KSLT and The Breeze. The following explains what the program is according to the KSLT website,
"Each month we highlight a different para-church ministry. Our aim is to bring awareness of the services that each ministry offers and highlight their mission in serving the community. We invite you to listen each month for a different ministry opportunity and to join us in praying for their mission to help and serve in our communities. We also believe that God may draw you to volunteer. Ministry of the Month is a program hosted by KSLT/KLMP & 97.9 The Breeze. This feature shares the stories of local ministries that are making a positive impact in our community. We encourage you to become involved and make a difference through serving and sharing."
It is truly an honor to have the community praying for us and we thank KSLT/KLMP, The Breeze, and Culver's for their attention to the needs in our community! If you would support Culver's this month and visit one of their locations there will also be a donation jar by the cash register in support of Passages this month of June 2018! Keep listening to 107.1 KSLT and 97.9 The Breeze for more information about Passages throughout the month.

Passages Women's Transitional Living
Passages is a faith-based, residential re-entry program to guide and support women as they transition from incarceration or homelessness into positive sustainable life patterns. At Passages, women whose lives were shattered due to drugs, alcohol, or abuse learn to build right relationships with God, themselves, and others. Initiated in 2008, with the first residents housed in 2013, Passages' loving home environment replaces the lies women believe about themselves with the truth that they are valued human beings--providing hope, opportunity, and skills to reach their full potential.
Passages Transformation Program. . .
Passages is a nonprofit group that provides a safe and nurturing environment for women in a faith-based home. Passages is entirely funded through private donations, fundraisers, and grants.
With an annual budget of $154,000 Passages relies on tax-deductible donations of generous community members as well as foundation grants. No federal funds are received, providing independence from government funding which allows Passages to introduce women to God's life-changing power. As a non-profit entity Passages holds an IRS 501 (c)(3) status.
