When difficult circumstances arise, many people rely on relatives and friends for support. But for some parents struggling to overcome poverty and social isolation, this is not an option. That’s where the Church steps in!
New Mercies Ministries is a collaboration among area churches, volunteers, and community agencies designed to give at-risk children and parents a network of support. New Mercies Ministries provides safe, loving homes where parents may voluntarily have their children cared for while seeking to restore stability in their lives.
- Volunteer Host Families, recruited through the local church, provide a loving home where children can stay while their parents get back on their feet.
- Family Coaches come alongside parents during the hosting, giving them support and mentorship.
Through its dedicated volunteers, New Mercies Ministries helps to prevent child abuse, deflect children from the foster care system, stabilize families, and share the light and hope of Christ with vulnerable families in our community.
