Remember that old saying”An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, well it could not be more true when it comes to children living in poverty. If we come along side a family and help in their time of need, you can truly prevent children from becoming an orphan.
Enter the Bring Love In Keep One Home program, where we are helping poor families in our community to rise up out of poverty and get ahead.
Today we have 50 families signed up as the initial families in this program, and starting in November of 2013 we are adding 100 more!. What we do is identify families who are very close to having to give up their children because they cannot afford to keep them and we give them a little money and support each month to make ends meet. We also place some money into a savings account and a health care account. Then we come along side them and help with their basic needs like school books, uniforms and medical check ups. Our goal is that each family would be a part of the sponsorship for three years and after that time be in a better place and be able to make it on their own.
Pretty simple and straight forward huh? We think that when there is a chance to keep children in their birth families, we should be doing everything we can to help.
Here is where you come in, for only $39 a month you can become a sponsor and help keep a family together, keep their kids in school, and give them the support they need to handle whatever it is that may come their way. It’s not enough to make them want to quit their jobs, but the right amount to ease the struggle and keep them motivated to get ahead.
Today we need your help, with the 100 new families starting next month we need all of the help we can get in sponsoring these families. Today we have sponsors for 56 of the 100 families, will you sign up to help us sponsor a family today? Click here to sponsor a family!
