God is Good

The backpack drive is pretty much over!

It’s been a whirlwind. Ace staff has been busy, maybe too busy, as we have officially EXCEEDED our goal of 300 FILLED backpacks! The outpouring of generosity by our church and corporate partners has been beyond encouraging. While we’re still gaining last minute collection numbers from a few of our partners, it appears as though we might even exceed 360 backpacks!

God.

Is.

Good.

 

Now check this out?!?!

Ace in the City has long been the recipient of the generosity from larger, more established organizations. We are where we are in part because

Ace Values

Ace in the City continues to grow in staff and scope and reach in the community. All good things, and we thank God for them.  As we grow, however (as any organization grows), the danger becomes losing sight and alignment to our vision and mission. Which is why values are so important. Values tether you to vision and mission, help you keep aligned.

While we have operated and expressed ourselves within a general framework that’s seemingly been pretty consistent across staff and programs, we’ve never actually done the good and hard work of putting values on paper and in front of us. But we did it, and it’s beautiful.

Thanks!

I was reminded over the weekend and today of the gift of life and friendship and being in the moment, for the moment, with where God has each of us. Thanks for all the love and support

Months of planning and prepping, hours upon hours of work led into Saturday’s Fellowship Dinner. And then, just like that, it’s over.  Incredible how that works….Ace staff did a tremendous job executing the vision for the evening, and it was so fun to see so many of you there. Again, thanks for praying, supporting, hosting, attending, setting up or tearing down.  We even EXCEEDED our goal of $55,000 to cover direct program costs. Couldn’t ha

Learning & Revamped Programs

We are getting back into the swing of things as fall approaches and with school already here. We’re excited to be launching some revamped programming beginning next week in the Powderhorn Community.

Historically, Ace | Readers, our literacy program, was held on Monday evenings for students Kindergarten through 3rd grade. On Wednesday’s, Ace | After School, our more general-focused program was open to students Kindergarten through 8th grade.

We’ve learned quite a few things over the last few years and, in light of this learning and the significant growth we’ve experienced, have made a few changes this fall:

Big Week!

This week is a BIG WEEK for our Powderhorn community as a majority of schools open their doors for our students! HUGE thanks to all of you who contributed towards our Back2School Drive a few weeks back in helping to prepare 250 of our students for their first day! Thank you!

Beyond the tangible need for school supplies, the beginning of the school year marks the fall launching of our weekend meal distribution in partnership with Sheridan Story and Folwell School. Food insecurity continues to be a huge issue in our neighborhood and while we’re not able to fully address all the iss
