Every dollar you give will be doubled!
Imagine being a single mom of 5 children and life seems to be falling apart all around you. You’re trying your best to keep it together, but your husband has walked out on you, you’ve lost your job, your electricity and water have been shut off, and you’re being evicted from your home with nowhere to go. These are the exact circumstances some mothers are faced with every day. We get an average of five to ten calls per week for families who are in desperate situations like this needing help.
In these cases, we thank God for the mothers! Most often, the father is absent from the picture while mom is trying to make ends meet and keep the family together. Even then, there are times where the odds are so far against them that the family just needs help.
This family of five is a prime example. We’re thankful that Hope has been a safe haven in keeping these siblings together opposed to being split up into foster care. This beautiful family came to Hope on February 6, 2018.
With the children being safe at Hope, mom had the opportunity to get her life in order and then, at some point, see her children come back into her care. This is always our goal!
We’re so thankful to say that within a few weeks, this family will be reunited with their mother!
Since placing her children into our care a little over a year ago, she has secured employment, got a house, and her life is now on a much better road. The children have advanced so much spiritually and educationally this past year. We have grown to love all of them, and we will dearly miss them, but they can now be added to the hundreds of children that have successfully come through the doors of Hope.
Can you imagine the story of these children had they ended up in foster care or, even worse, on the streets?
Our Mother’s Day Offering is one of our most needed offerings throughout the year as it goes towards helping children like these.
It’s one of the few times that we ask you to dig deep and make a difference! We’re excited to announce that we have a generous donor who has stepped up and pledged a $40,000 matching gift!
Every dollar you give will be doubled up to the match amount! Please help us so that we don’t lose any of these matching gift monies.
Maybe you would like to give a special gift in memory or honor of your mother or wife? Whatever the gift amount, your help is greatly needed and much appreciated!
