A Hebrew word meaning to Pause and Reflect
Children are allowed to be in Hand in Hand's SafePlace shelter for up to 72 hours. At times 72 hours is not enough time to find the right long term home, especially for sibling groups, and children who’s needs are unknown. Through Hand in Hand's Selah Homes, children entering the foster care system for the first time are shown the love of Jesus through one family providing stability and security. Our families are in partnership with their church community where they are nurtured so they can continue to provide healthy, loving care to the children that enter their home for a maximum of 30 days and who have the first hands on care to these children.
Hand in Hand licenses our short term receiving care foster homes, Selah Homes, to care for and assess the needs of children entering the foster system for the first time. This gives social workers valuable information they need and allows them time to find the right long term home the first time rather than another short term placement.
