Time to Reconnect
Graduates of Rebuilders, our life-change program for men, and CAC staff held their first alumni retreat at beautiful Wallowa Lake. The purpose of this weekend event was to reconnect the men with each other and share the successes and challenges of living in this new phase of their lives, while resisting the negative temptations of the past. The CAC staff also wanted to get feedback on how effective Rebuilders had been for the participants and brainstorm ways to strengthen the program. One graduate admitted to struggling before the retreat. Gratefully, the love and encouragement given to him during the weekend gave him a new outlook on life and his hope was restored.
CAC is planning to institute an annual alumni retreat as one of the activities of Master Builder—a new program for alumni. Another component of the new program is monthly support meetings for graduates that live locally.
