Peer to Peer fundraising

A Peer to Peer (P2P) Fundraiser doesn’t have to do a lot of work! Do you post on FaceBook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok or your own website? Then all you need to do is occasionally mention the great work that Xtreme SOULutions is doing in the community and encourage your followers to support our efforts. If you have a personal story to share about how our ministry has impacted you or a loved one, that is all the better. But if you don’t, feel free to peruse our story posts and tell about one of the guys who has participated.

You can be an Influencer for the Kingdom of God by telling others about the life changing work Xtreme SOULutions is doing with the incarcerated of Marion County!

We’re Back!

We are happy to report that after a year of COVID-19 restrictions, we are now back in action at MCI. We’ve been assigned a new facility to house our classes and with the help of some generous donors, we’ve been able to re-finish the floor, provide some new folding tables and generally spruce up the place for our students.

Of course there are still limitations on class size, etc., but our volunteers are delighted to be back “inside” with their guys and the guys are more than happy to have us back, teaching, exhorting and encouraging them to be all that God created them for. Please keep us all in prayer as we work within the news rules and restrictions designed to make the situation safe for all.

All praise and thanks to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, for His grace and mercy as several of our team were afflicted by the virus but were able to make a full recovery.

TV Alert

We are so excited to be a part of WUFT’s new series “The Greater Good.” Their top-notch production team has put together a 6-minute segment about Xtreme SOULutions, that will begin airing on WUFT TV (Channel 5 on Spectrum & Cox in Ocala: Channel 3 in the Gainesville area) at 8:30pm this Friday, May 28. Be sure to tune in and hear some great testimonies and a word or two from our leaders.

Big Thank You

We are so excited and grateful to the Community Foundation of Marion County/Ocala for their recent donation of 80 stacking chairs, 62 office chairs and a file cabinet. This was an answer to our prayers as we moved into a new space at Marion CI – it’s looking pretty spiffy now with our freshly painted blue floors, white folding tables and the new grey chairs.  We appreciate the generosity of our community for all the donations that make our work possible.
