New Beginnings:

First Graduate of New Chef Training Program to Present 5-Course Meal to Local Dignitariesinvite

Derran Smith has spent most of his adult life in and out of prison. Now his love of cooking has turned into a sustainable job in a restaurant industry continually in need of trained and qualified chefs.

Derran is about to be the first graduate of a newly launched nonprofit culinary training program called Trinity Restaurant Training. For his final exam this Sunday he will present a 5-course meal for an invitation-only Chef’s Table of local dignitaries and guests inside the historic St. Andrews Room at Church of the Holy Trinity. West Chester Mayor Dianne Herrin will be among the guests, and will present a citation of achievement, as will the office of State Representative Carolyn Comitta.

Dear Diary

May 21 - "Spencer's" journey is a long one...when we met him in 2012 he spoke of a past peppered with bad choices. He was unemployed and seemingly unmotivated. Over the next few years we got to know him, continued to encourage him to find work - telling him we believed he had a lot to offer and continued to listen as he talked but did not act. Then in 2016 he came to tell us that our friendship and belief in him led him to finally WANT to take action. He is now 2 years sober, has 2 jobs, and has a very clear vision of the direction he is heading.

May 14 -Coming home to "EVICTION NOTICE" hanging on your front door would be enough to shatter most anyone. It took the coordinated efforts of 2 social service organizations, the hard working tenant (who took on a PT job in addition to her full-time job), and a property manager with compassion to prevent this piece of paper from leading to homelessness. Working together = one less person entering a Chester County shelter.

May 11 -"Oh my gosh! I can't thank you guys enough for all you've done for me...seriously, I don't know where I'd be without your help!" We don't share praise like this to solicit awe. We share because when "Jay" came to visit this week he was beaming ...he came to tell us that he just started a great job and is close to securing housing. We share because a $30.50 photo ID and $80 for a cell phone can be life-changing. We share so our donors know how invaluable & appreciated their support is to the "Jays" in our community.
