1. Keep One Home Sponsorships
You have heard all about how we are here to create new families from widows and orphans, but there is another area that we are stepping out into as well, and that is a sponsorship program that will help keep the children who are at risk of being orphaned, in their families.. Meaning that we come alongside families in our neighborhood who are living right on the brink financially, and we support them with the resources they need the keep their families together. As much as we love creating new families, we feel that there will never be a family like the one you were born into.
We call it “Keep One Home”
Our first 50 families showed us that this program is something worth investing in, and so starting in October of 2013 we are opening up to help another 100 families in Ethiopia! For only $39 per month you can sign up to sponsor one of these families. Click here to change the life of a family forever!
With 45 kids in our Forever Families, and another 91 in our Keep One Home program we go through an enormous amount of clothing and shoes, really its amazing how quickly these kids wear through things! And so one of the needs that we have that never seems to go away is for shoes, clothes, jackets and underwear. If you or someone you know is heading to Ethiopia we would be thrilled if you could load your suitcases up for us with as many new or gently used clothes as you can find.
When you arrive in Addis contact Nasrawit and she can arrange to come pick everything up, or even better she can set up a time to give you a tour of Bring Love In and introduce you to all the kids.

3. General expenses.
These are the expenses that are not covered in our sponsorships, things like rent for the office, salaries for our office staff (social worker, psychologist, head house mother, accountant, nurse, secretary, general manager, purchaser).
We approach everything in this category with the same fierce resolve; keep costs low. Yet in order to provide for the kids in our care in the best way possible we are willing to accept the fact that some costs are necessary, thankfully God is good! And although it stretches our faith a little more each month when it comes time to pay the bills, He always comes through. Always.
Right now we are praying for more monthly givers and one time donations in this area so that we are able to handle the increased administration costs as our programs grow.
