Hartford Men United visits Ella Fitzgerald Elementary School

Members of Hartford Men United (“HMU”) from Hartford Memorial Baptist Church have vowed to reach deep into the community to help youngsters in schools. They put their commitment to work with a recent visit to Ella Fitzgerald, a K-8 Elementary School. It was the first such visit through their new “Ministry Of Presence” created to help increase the ‘presence’ of men in the schools and to be there when children need them. The HMU men want to show children that they are concerned and love them. Members of the group toured Fitzgerald, met the teachers and students and witnessed the many learning opportunities available to the children. The “Ministry of Presence” is the first school partnership project of the HMU which stands ready to do whatever needs to be done to establish positive relationships with young people in the schools.
