Working with children ages 4-8, whose parent(s) are in ‘crisis situations’, sometimes for 1-2 years. The children are nurtured, receive LOTS of encouragement, taught ‘Life’ skills, develop a child-like relationship with GOD (much like you would your own nieces and nephews). Children are returned once parent(s) are back on solid ground. Helping the children, helps the church, community and family….the world. ‘God calls us to take care of His children’.
