It is our joy to equip local churches to journey together with isolated mothers and vulnerable children by offering voluntary hosting of the children during crises such as homelessness, medical crisis, unemployment, and mental health struggles. We believe in the power of relationship and that no family should ever walk alone. This innovative model has become a new path to keep families together and help them thrive.
