ASF’s School-to-Career Transition Initiative expands to all Asher Houses!
Exciting news! In addition to serving students, we are expanding our housing services to include recent college/university graduates who are working out their post-graduate life and career paths. In May, we successfully piloted the School-to-Career Transition Initiative (CTI) at Asher House, Washington DC. And so, beginning September 1st, we will expand the program to include all Asher Houses.
Gratitude from a spring 2016 CTI resident at Asher House, Washington, DC:
“[Asher House, DC] was an incredible provision for me as I transitioned from a graduate degree program in another city to a new non-profit job in DC. To be able to stay at the Asher House enabled me to get my feet under me, met a pressing need, and provided me with a sense of home and fellowship that meant a great deal. Frankly, staying at Asher made all the difference – spiritually, financially, and logistically.
I think of Asher fondly when I recall Mary Baker Eddy’s sentiment that ‘Home is the dearest spot on earth.’ So, too, Asher is the ‘center, but not the boundary’ of Christian affection for the community. I saw friends, family, guests, and other Christian Scientists gather there often. In turn, these individuals went about their work blessing the world.”
