The the issues that plague Chattanooga are remarkably similar to Cape Town, South Africa. The Institute for the Healing of Memories in Cape Town, South Africa has been working with young people for the past four years on a project that they call “Restoring Humanity,” a project that the Fathers 2 the Fatherless staff found inspiring and they committed to joining us for our next Healing of Memories Workshop and facilitator training in the fall of 2017.

In the spring of 2015, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Chattanooga’s social justice committee and lay pastoral care committee sponsored a fundraising event and raised funds to introduce the transformative power of the Healing of Memories workshops. Father Lapsley offered two introductory workshops that included members of the community, social workers, police officers, and church members.
