Does your church feel called to serve the least of these in a profound way?

Become a difference-maker

1 Peter 4:10 calls us to use our gifts to serve others. Caring for the vulnerable among us puts the heart of God on display with purity and clarity. Practically speaking, what does this look like? How can we all participate in loving children from hard places and supporting the families that care for them?

As a faith-based nonprofit, our beliefs fuel everything we do. We would love to discuss ways your church can partner with us in reaching at-risk children and teens.

Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

Romans 12:13

A monthly gift shapes the life experiences of children and teens who need it most!

  • Lilly and Tracy arrived in care with nothing. Monthly giving provided the resources for them to receive fresh clothes, shampoo, and soft blankets to take to a foster home.
  • Jack was able to start school with new clothing, shoes, and a backpack full of supplies so that he didn’t stand out as a foster kid.
  • Jacqueline attended her prom in a beautiful dress, jewelry, and even new makeup, just like the other teens.
