Become A Church Partner

How does your church build and live out an informed and wholistic ministry that connects the people in your church to the needs of vulnerable children and families in crisis your community? We would love to start a conversation to explore this together. We help build movements of family advocacy within churches that are simple, relational, and contextualized to the style and heart-connection of a church’s values. We focus on the idea that in every church, “Everyone can do something… What’s your something?”

VOLUNTEER AS A CHURCH OR GROUP

Needs range from ongoing to short-term, and requirements of high to low commitments. Your generous gift of time and talent will ensure that the lives of even more abused children and families in crisis will be transformed.

Immediate Needs for Children & Families

We value your time, talent, and treasures! There are so many ways you can get involved or donate to meet the needs of in-crisis children and families in our care. We need your financial giving, but we also rely on donations of home supplies, food, clothing, and other essentials to help support our mission to prevent child abuse and transform lives. See below for current needs in each of our regions across California, Nevada, and the Pacific Northwest.

From diapers to blankets, we are always in need of items to help our children and families. We understand that our donors have different capacities for giving and are grateful for any items you can spare. Your donation will make a difference by providing timely and tangible needs for the children and youth we serve.

For the protection of our youth, only new items can be accepted unless otherwise indicated.
