Boy has it ever been a busy last month. It seems a whirlwind but we have gotten so much accomplished. We are so excited to share what we have been up to.
We bought our reboot program and secured a location for our first reboot program. We also set a date for our first meeting. We are hopeful that there will be 5-7 veterans with their significant others attending this class. It will be held in Newberg, Oregon. (If you are interested in signing up or finding a program close to you please go to Rebootrecovery.com.) Suppers and childcare will be provided.
We have started advertising! We are so excited that we found an affordable way to advertise. We are currently advertising on Facebook, and over several billboards in the Spokane, Boise and Portland area. We are also accepting speaking engagements as the Lord opens up the opportunities.
Our board decided to hire a company to file our 501C3 (Tax exempt status.) We are so happy they decided to do that. They have said that we are able to file for the easier form and that we should be tax exempt in as little as 3 weeks from filing. (We're hoping to file in the next week or two.) However, with that, we are also needing to amp up the fund raising, as the ministry needs to pay $600 for the companies hire and about $300 to fill with the IRS. We are keeping track of who donates as when we are approved they go back to the date of donations from the filing with the state. So, we will be sending out tax deductible receipts at the time of approval. We are really excited about almost being done with this part of the start up. (We love the hands on part of helping people, but the paperwork end isn't either of our favorite jobs.)
If you are in the area and would like to volunteer to assist in the reboot program we are holding please feel free to get in contact with us and we will find a spot to use your willingness to help. We are so appreciative of your love and support for our ministry.
Wishing many blessings upon you,
Bitsy and Jeremy.
