Whole Again summer program helps build dreams
CINCINNATI (Deb Dixon) -- First came healthy food, the heart of the summer program 'Whole Again.'
But in summer enrichment programs across the city, that was just the beginning.
"If you're not eating well, nothing else in your life is going to be right. We understand life consists of more than what you eat," said Pastor Gregory Chandler, founder of Whole Again, said.
At Zion Baptist Church in Avondale life over the summer consists of academics in the morning, career building in the afternoon. Retired teacher Fay Ogletree taught the cool lattice system of multiplying Tuesday morning. Tuesday afternoon consisted of a field trip to NKU. There have been several over the summer.
Monday's was to a landscape artist. At Christ Hospital the children had the chance to meet a pathologist and radiologist.
"We keep telling these kids they can be everything, now we're showing them what some of those things are," said James Bond of the Zion Summer Enrichment Program.
Whole Again started with food and ended up feeding the spirit by fueling dreams. The program is supported by both public and private funds.
