Our team will be going through a number of obstacles and testing our limits in the mud. It's such a small challenge compared to those dealing with domestic abuse every day. You can help support a safe place for the families to go when they make the tough decision to leave the situation.
If you have been in this situation, you understand how difficult it is to leave your home and hope to find someone to take the risk of bringing you into their home, or finding a safe place to go where you can be protected. You know how amazing it is to have supporters to a program like Harbor House. If you have never been in a sitiation like this or witnessed it from the outside, count your blessings! Remember those who are not as fortunate as you, not having a loving family to come home to every day. Remember them in your prayers and find it in your heart to be the support they need to take that huge step to the rest of their lives.
Many of you have donated to our food drives in the past, and I would encourage you to consider this as an option this year. We could really use your help! Could you consider giving up one coffee a day for a month? One less meal out at a restaurant? Plan a family night in instead of paying a babysitter? No amount is too small when given freely with love and hope.
Please, hold your family tight, tell them you love them, and consider helping out a family that is looking for the love that you share! Thank you!
