I teach the FNP (Family Nutrition Program) classes through Purdue Extension. I have worked with Beauty for Ashes for years. I go in to teach a group or an individual the nine-lesson series. The focus is on quick, inexpensive, healthy meals. They spend time learning nutrition information and then we prepare meals together. Over the years, the women have reported to me that they benefit from the program by eating healthier and saving money. Most of the women in the house are always very thankful for the information and the time we spend together. I have also observed changes in the women as they live there and partake in the classes and the daily routines of the house. They become more assertive, outgoing, and in control of their lives. The staff at Beauty for Ashes is very supportive by providing resources and expecting the clients to benefit from those resources. I always enjoy imparting knowledge with the women and I, in turn, always get a need met.
