When vulnerable parents face crisis, children are at risk. Let’s work together to ensure that vulnerable mothers and children never walk alone.
Coronavirus Response: Opportunities for Good
Together for Good is following the advice of the CDC and other government officials so we have canceled all non-emergency hosting of children. However, we are still very much committed to coming alongside isolated families as we pursue social engagement with physical distance. We’ve been surveying the parents we serve and creating a list of needs.
We are asking you to pray for and provide for the families we serve. We have created opportunities for good which include donations for specific needs, and volunteer delivery of items to families. For many, you have watched and prayed for just the right time to step in. Now is that time!
All children deserve to be safe and protected
Vulnerable, socially isolated families often don’t have anywhere to turn in times of crisis or when facing chronic stress. Research tells us that without strong social networks, children can be left in unsafe situations, increasing the risk of abuse and neglect.
Together, along with the church, we provide practical help and relational support to struggling families. Our trained network of volunteers provide safe places for children to stay during crisis, respite care and ongoing friendship to ensure no parent has to walk alone.
How do we help?
We understand how overwhelming life can be when there is no one to call during times of crisis or stress. And we know all parents need supportive, caring relationships.
We create pathways for the church to come alongside vulnerable children and families in Christ-centered ministry.
Host and Respite Families
Families who want to make a difference are qualified and trained to host children temporarily during crisis.
Church Care Team
Local church teams wrap around both host families and families in need with hospitality meals, transportation, encouragement and practical help.
We build lasting relationships with the families we come alongside through fellowship meals, parenting support, mentoring and more.
How can you help?
First, be informed. Knowing that a crisis exists is the first step to taking action and resolving to do something about it.
Second, you can help by getting involved with a local church that supports Together for Good with a volunteer team.
Third, you can support the effort financially. Simply choose a way to donate and you will make a difference.
Change lives, empower people and build meaningful relationships.
When you join together for good, children are kept safe, trauma is relieved and parents are able to keep their families together.
