Safe Families for Children JUST HIT OUR GOAL!!! We raised $10,000 for Safe Families of Madison County with a little help from our friends, family, churches and buisnesses! God is using people to move through Safe Families and it is a beautiful thing!
December 2nd is #GivingTuesday and we are going to see if we can get a few more donations pulled in specifically for Safe Families of Madison County. In case this new to you -- Safe Families is a movement of compasssion that allows the Church to step in and care for families and children in crisis. Parents are able to voluntarily choose to place their child in the home of a safe family, while they recieve time and resources to get back on their feet. Safe Families is a non-profit organization that recieves no funding through the State. Our program deflects families from falling into the hands of the foster care system and prevents child abuse and neglect. It costs us on average $150 to help a child in need and $500 to help a family, compared to the $1200 it takes when a child goes into foster care. (WOW!)
Your donations will allow this movement to continue to move! Let's "top off" Madison County and see if we can bring in some more donations. Every $150 is another child that we can help!
Take a moment to check out our video and then read about how Safe Families began in Madison County. What started with a phone call from a desperate mom has now opened the flood gates for other families and children in crisis to receive the same kind of help. You can read more stories on our blog and catch what's going on with Safe Families in Madison County on our Facebook page.
THANK YOU !!!!!
