When I received the gifts from The Charis Project I was able to face my issues and overcome them.
Every day we meet hungry and discouraged parents who are looking for help. They feel helpless to care for their children. Some are even looking to give them up, or have done so already.
You can send them someone to walk beside them, strengthen them, and help them be the parent they want to be. Just as you would want if you were in the same situation.
The family rescue teams understand first hand where these parents are coming from because they’ve been there too. To families who are on the edge of falling apart they bring food, encouragement, community, friendship, counseling, and access to resources.
When you encourage a mother, support a father, and stand with them, they stop living with the fear that their children might be better off without them. They start working to hold onto their children because now they have hope.
You can give a child a strong loving family to grow up in and their parents the help you would want if you were in their shoes.
Strong families are a child’s best protection against exploitation and abuse. Understanding the Problem
