People change lives

Whether in our foster care programs, through adoption, from our counseling services, or in our residential programs – the connections and investment of so many people have inspired positive change in thousands of lives. Here are just a few of those stories. 

Walk a mile

For eight weeks prior to the exhibit, local artist Micala Gingrich-Gaylord works with foster children receiving care at EmberHope Youthville. The children and teens design shoe-themed pieces as a means of expression, therapy, and healing. 

The artwork represents each artist’s personal experience in the child welfare system. Most children in care have faced unimaginable levels of trauma. 

You are invited to “walk a mile in their shoes” by reading and sharing their stories to inspire hope, healing, and action for children in the child welfare system.
