Many families in our community are living right on the edge. They're on the edge of losing their children to DHS, the edge of homelessness, the edge of losing it all. One unexpected bill, sickness, or accident can change the trajectory of their lives and the lives of their children. Sometimes it's a foster parent doing all they can for a child, but they need a little help. Sometimes it's a bio mom trying to work her plan to get her kids back, but she needs a bus pass to get to the court dates.
There are so many little (and sometimes big) ways we can get involved and keep families together. If we can prevent one child from needlessly going into state custody, wouldn't it be worth it?
Here's where the Care Portal comes in. DHS and agency caseworkers can submit needs to the Care Portal website where it goes to participating churches in that area. Churches find ways to meet those needs and keep families together, keep kids safe, and give hope to those on the edge.
Chosen and Crossings Community Church are now a part of the Care Portal. We've made it really easy for you to get involved! Just head over to our facebook page and "like" us HERE
You'll see needs posted twice a week. Jump in and help when you can, help connect resources to needs, or simply pray over the situation.
Thanks for helping us care for families in crisis.
