At Together for Good, we create pathways for the church to come alongside vulnerable families in Christ-centered ministry.
When parents face crisis with no support system, they become vulnerable. When a parent becomes vulnerable, their children are at increased risk of trauma. Together we work to ensure that vulnerable families and children never walk alone.
Be our guest!
You’re invited to our 2023 fundraising galas!
We are holding our National Gala in the Twin Cities on November 11 and our Iowa Gala in Des Moines on November 4. Both galas are free to attend and will be an evening of celebration! Registration is open until October 27.
We can’t wait to see you there!
COVID-19 created a social isolation crisis.
We feel a deep responsibility to provide for the needs in our communities and bring healing and hope in Jesus’ name.
Social isolation has taken a toll on all of us, but it has especially devastated already-struggling families and children, many of whom are single parents with no one to reach out to for help.
As the body of Christ, we are called to love our neighbors.
We join hands across our congregations, neighborhoods and communities to provide practical and relational support to struggling families.
Together, we can make a difference, serve those in proximity to us and ensure families stay together.
All children deserve to be safe and protected. All parents deserve supportive, caring relationships.
Research tells us that without strong social networks to come alongside families in need, children can be left in unsafe situations, which increases their risk of abuse and neglect.
Together for Good’s network of trained volunteers provides safe places for children to stay while their parents receive the support and encouragement they need to make it through a tough time.
When an exhausted parent simply needs a break for a night or weekend, our TFG network steps in to provide respite care and ongoing friendship. Because no parent should walk life’s journey alone.
There are many ways to get involved.
Become a Host/Respite Family
Once you fill out the application, complete a thorough training and vetting process and are approved by trained TFG staff, you’ll be able to host children temporarily in your home on an as-needed basis.
Join a Church Care Team
Local church teams in our communities wrap around TFG host families and the families we serve by providing hospitality meals, transportation, encouragement and practical help.
Provide Relational Support
Join hands with the TFG network and build lasting relationships with the families we serve every day by providing fellowship meals, parenting support, mentoring and more.
When you join Together for Good, children are kept safe, trauma is relieved and parents are able to keep their families together.
