Father Fred offers a variety of services to those in need. In one unit of our facility, we house a food pantry focused on healthy options and organized as a self-shop model to preserve our guest's dignity and simultaneously reduce waste. In addition to our clothing area, we assist guests who may need other home items such as a bed, dishes, or shelves. If a guest is struggling with eviction, keeping the heat on or medical bills, we have a financial services staff member available to listen to their circumstance and advise or assist them as we are able.
GTDA provides one-on-one tutoring in reading and spelling, training to tutors and teachers, and community education to enhance awareness of dyslexia and the challenges faced by people with dyslexia. GTDA is the only tutoring center in the greater Grand Traverse region that specifically uses the Orton-Gillingham method to teach struggling learners reading, writing, and spelling. Most of the students we teach could not learn to read, write, or spell proficiently any other way. They must have the systematic, multi-sensory phonetic instruction of Orton-Gillingham in order to reach their goals in the classroom and in life. A non-profit organization, GTDA was formed in 1985 when parents and teachers in our community expressed a need for help for struggling students. Today, GTDA serves an average of 125 students per year with 25 trained tutors.
