As Catholics we believe in the call to biblical hospitality, and look for ways to surround those in crisis with caring, compassionate community. One way we answer this call at Holy Trinity is through Safe Families for Children, a movement made possible by a network of volunteers passionate about keeping children safe and families intact. Join our team to help provide care and resources for children while their families get back on their feet.
Safe Families for Children, is a ministry made possible by a network of volunteers passionate about keeping children safe and families intact. Safe Families is a family ministry; we open our hearts, open our arms, and open our homes!
Thank you for your continued prayers and support of the Safe Families ministry! The network of disciples of both host families and ‘family friends’, provided over 300 bed nights to children in 2019. We hope to do even more in 2020! There are many requests every day for hosting of children whose parents are facing homelessness, addiction issues, hospitalization for themselves or a sick child, domestic violence, etc. If you’ve considered opening your home to families in need and have any questions about how the ministry serves, we are here to share. If you are unable to host, but want to help support the hostings in the form of diapers, meals, or gift cards for groceries, etc, your support is appreciated. Please contact Jenny Hayes for needs and information at firstname.lastname@example.org
A snapshot of the types of situations God brings us to serve. Currently hosting families are serving an eleven year old and six year old (different families) as their moms secure housing, four year old twins while mom enters a detox program, and a one year while mom deals with a health crisis. Please pray for these hostings – for the children who have been displaced, the families struggling to survive, and the families in our parish who are being Jesus through their compassion and support.
