Winter 2015 - Connecting to God and One Another
“My mother and I were constantly feuding.” “I didn’t really have a relationship with my dad.” “I didn’t feel like I was part of my family.” “I didn’t feel connected to anyone.” When we asked our students what life was like before The Fold they mention fractured relationships, feeling isolated and being disconnected from the people who love them most.
Fall 2015 - New Beginnings at Cornerstone Christian School
You don’t have to talk with our students for long before it is clear that God is doing something new in their lives. This fall, The Fold is welcoming many new students, who, as they participate in our program, receive, in the words of one student, “a new beginning and a second chance.”
Summer 2015 - Vision for the Future
This summer, The Fold is celebrating a special milestone as Fred Tomaselli officially transitions into retirement. Fred faithfully served as President for 40 years and then in a consulting capacity as Jay Breish transitioned into his role as The Fold’s Executive Director in 2012. We sat down with Jay to hear his thoughts on Fred’s legacy and his plans for The Fold’s future.
Spring 2015 - A Safe Place to Heal
Early adolescence is an especially vulnerable time for teens and their families. Young people in this stage of life need positive and stable relationships with adults who can help them safely navigate this crucial development period. But, too often, they are more influenced by peers and a media culture that promotes destructive behaviors. At The Fold, we’re seeing this happen earlier than ever before.
Winter 2014 - Hope Renewed, Families Restored
Here in northern New England, Vermonters are preparing for a long winter. We know that from the time the autumn leaves fall to when the grass is green again, there will be a long absence of warmth and sunshine. But we also know that spring is coming! Absence is often necessary for the blossoms of renewal to appear. This Christmas, teens are returning home for a two week break after an 11 week term at The Fold. Despite the challenges of being away from home, our teens have emerged stronger and brighter than ever. They are looking forward to a Christmas this year marked by peace and understanding instead of conflict and confusion.
