SAFE PLACE

IMAGINE................

  • Being a child, woken up in the middle of the night to yelling and commotion, forcibly torn away from your parents and removed from your home, terrified, sad and confused.
  • Being the social worker, suddenly responsible for this traumatized child, doing your best to console them in the back seat of your car while driving around making call after call for placement.
  • Being a receiving care home and taking this child in, who has just been through unimaginable trauma, not knowing their needs, medical condition or anything else about them.
  • IMAGINE A PLACE............................

    A warm, peaceful and welcoming environment. With loving, trained staff and volunteers ready and waiting to receive this precious child, console them, wipe away tears, serve a warm meal, offer a shower, provide clean clothes, replace their black hefty garbage sack with a new colorful bag for their belongings and handmade blanket to provide comfort.

    A place where they are taken by a supportive volunteer to get their mandatory health exam and remain with them to hold their hand through a difficult forensic exam.

    A place where they can have the peace and support they need to finally relax, get some rest and even have fun, as a child should, while their social worker is able to take the time needed to find the best placement for them that will hopefully lead to permanence.

    IMAGINE A SAFE PLACE..................................

    Hand in Hand provides this Safe Place for kids. In our Safe Place shelter, they are provided a warm, caring environment to transition after being removed from their homes, allowing the social worker time needed to do their best job at finding proper placement without the pressures of caring for the child at the same time.

    We are restoring hope, helping to change the story of these children's lives and believe God has amazing plans for their future.

    He can use you to help change their story as well. Your gift of time, donations or funds, goes to meet the important needs of each child and shows them the goodness & genrosity of people who care.

    We abide by James 1:27 which reads "Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you."

    See how you can GET INVOLVED to help change the story for local foster children!
