LSA member Wheat Ridge Ministries recently awarded three Joshua Grants totaling $13,800. Joshua Grants are one year, matching grants of $1,000-$5,000 to Lutheran congregations, organizations and agencies committed to launching new ministries of health and hope in their community. The congregation or organization requesting funding must contribute matching funds equal to 50% of the Wheat Ridge grant award.
Of the three recipients, one was a fellow LSA member, Glade Run Lutheran Services:

Grant Amount - $5,000
Glade Run Lutheran Services’ Yoga Therapy Program is intended to help abused and traumatized children learn new ways to cope with stress and trauma. Yoga relaxation and breathing techniques restore peace and calm to agitated abuse victims.
