Training/safety programs for ministering to at-risk population?

Our church is in the planning stages of forming a non-profit organization to minister to homeless in our community. We will take up residence at a local motel. We need to formulate a training program for our volunteers. We also need to develop a safety policies. Not wanting to reinvent the wheel, does anyone have access to share an existing program fir either area with us? We would use as a reference and tailor to our specific ministry. Thanks!

Mortgage Letter Destruction!

Any ideas? Our church has paid off our mortgage--yay! They've asked the youth group to come up with a creative (symbolic) way to destroy the mortgage letter at a celebration this Sunday. I missed my opportunity to survey the YG and wonder if anyone has some great ideas on how to do this? We'll be in the Fellowship Hall after the service (indoors)... Burning was suggested--not sure what that would look like. Any ideas?

What suggestions do you have for college-age ministry?

Our church is considering beginning a ministry for college-age students. It would be a continuation of youth group, but would require a new formula to reach the challenges and interests of students in this group. Any ideas or thoughts? Any others have an existing ministry at their church?
