Evelyn Okunbor and The HART Center

 Evelyn is leaving The HART Center to pursue her Doctorate of International Counseling in Chicago. She will be taking online courses full time beginning in January so her last day with us will be January 7, 2013. It is a sad time for us but we have always known her intention. We wish her all joy as she moves forward to manifest her dreams. The HART Center will always be here for her.

     Memphis and Shelby County Office of Planning and Development will hold a Public Hearing on January 10, 2013, at 10 am. The HART Center is requesting a Special Use Permit that will allow overnight stays for people participating in deeper emotional-spiritual-physical processes. innerquest house will be available to those seeking a retreat center for their specialty events.

The Mural     

     Kevin Chasing Wolf Hutchins continues painting the wall. It is no longer just "The Lady." He currently is coaxing out the animals that seem to have been there all along. It is fascinating watching him find and bring them out with color. Drop by to watch him work. You will be amazed! 

FedEx Grant

     It seems that The HART Center was not one of the recipients of the FedEx grants. Thanks to all who voted so diligently for the cause. I am delighted we went forward with the renovations regardless of the outcome of the grant. We are very close to being done with the basic upgrades for Code Enforcement. I shall keep you posted as we move forward.
