Ashford Santa Fe Apartment Ministry

WMBC loves its community. Ashford Santa Fe Apartments in the heart of Willow Meadows. We partner with YMCA to provide READY for SCHOOL! and Summer Kids Club Ready for School! serves young refugee families. These families often come from countries that do not offer children’s literature or a culture of parents reading to their little ones. Some of the refugee parents have limited English language skills and very few homes have children’s books in English. Children and parents meet in a group setting one day a week for activities and instruction. Each week they are sent home with a new book, a bag of materials, and new skills to practice. Summer Kids Club is our summer program at Ashford. We teach Bible stories, do crafts, play games, and enjoy being with the children. If you are interested in serving at Ashford contact Elias Garcia at egarcia@wmbc.org.
