Provide faith-based and community resource support
The pandemic threatened the connection with our clients, as we were no longer allowing clients to come into the boutique and shop for their families giving us time to hug, sit next to, serve them a cup of coffee, and learn about their situation. We are continuing to find new ways to connect and communicate with our clients while being considerate of COVID safety concerns. WeCare is one of the main ways!
We have lots of hopes and dreams for this program which will take community-minded churches partnering with us to help support families in crisis. Ultimately, we want our clients to have the opportunity to be set free from addiction, financial distress, abusive homes, trafficking, and unsafe and oppressive environments. There are resources out there if someone is willing to do the hard work – our job is to pass these resources on, pray, and encourage them.
Galatians 5:1 “ It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
