Pamper Lake Highlands
More than 23% of residents within a five mile radius of the Lake Highlands High School (just south of 635 and Skillman/Audelia RD. exit) are living near or below the national poverty level. Almost 17% of residents in this same area do not have a high school diploma or equivalency. Additionally, 16% of these residents struggle to read, write, speak or understand English. (source: NCTCOG). Pamper Lake Highlands wants to walk beside these residents and help them overcome this statistic.
Pamper Lake Highlands first addresses the vital need for access to diapers. An adequate supply of diapers (8-10 diapers per day) costs approximately $78 per month or more (source: Huggies Every Little Bottom study) and there are currently no government funded programs addressing this costly and fundamental necessity. Providing this necessity and creating this relationship opens the door for God to work through Pamper Lake Highlands in the form of its other programs, including:
Developing a closer relationship to the Lord, through small group Bible studies;
Furthering their education by taking GED, ESL or college classes;
Receiving counseling to improve over all emotional and mental health;
Nurturing a healthier parent-child relationship through parenting classes; and/or
Recovering from addictive behaviors through active participation in a recovery program.
One out of four of these impoverished families has at least one child below the age of five. Hence, a vital need for these families is access to diapers, as there are currently no government funded programs addressing this costly and fundamental necessity. Pamper Lake Highlands starts by addressing this basic need, while encouraging the families to actively work towards bettering their situation. As long as they are actively working the program, we are eager to continue providing our support. By assessing the Lake Highlands community through recent outreach events, we found that there is a strong interest in participating. There is a glaring need in the Lake Highlands community for help and hope.
Therefore, we feel led to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community, expanding Pamper Lake Highlands to reach more families.
