One group of inspiring ladies in the Wiregrass is helping the next generation discover their potential.

The organization is called Chicktime. It connects women to creative opportunities to serve others, namely children’s charities. Chicktime’s Dothan Chapter holds monthly workshops at the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home. Members enjoy activities like crafts and cooking with the kids. They say their mission is to expose these children to a variety of gifts and talents, so they can discover their own.

"We do just fun activities, mentor with them, just share our hearts and try to be a bright spot in their sometimes not so bright lives," said Ashley Simmons of Chicktime Dothan.

Simmons founded the Chicktime Dothan Chapter three years ago, along with Sally Raetzke and Ranah McSween.

Members say involvement in the group offers a platform in which they can give back to the community.

"It's just been fulfilling knowing that I've had a little part in maybe making a difference in their life," said Abby Albritton, a Chicktime Dothan member.

This month’s Chicktime workshop - Skinz N’ Skullz: An introduction to South Alabama animals - will be held in partnership with The Alabama 4-H Club. The event is set for June 17th from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home.
