Homes of Hope
With residual fallout from Covid-19, be advised partners may have different guidelines for the protection of those they serve. Many are now accepting volunteers and looking forward to having you serve with them!
In Illinois alone, there are 18,000 children in foster care. Over 3,300 of those children are waiting to be adopted.
The Solution: Homes of Hope
At Christ Community Church, we see a future where all kids at risk of foster care have a home. The mission of Homes of Hope is to cultivate a culture within Christ Community Church that encourages and prepares individuals, couples, and families to care for vulnerable children and spread the good news of Jesus in the process.
Homes of Hope Objectives:
- Awareness – What does the Bible say about caring for vulnerable children? How can we care through education, information, and promotion?
- Resources – How can we facilitate the provision of resources in the areas of finances, events, learning, and other opportunities?
- Connections – Many who want to help might not know where to start. Safe Families coordinates the connection of individuals, couples, and families with the right people and organizations.
Those who serve with Safe Families from Christ Community Church have a unique influence within the lives of the children and their families. There are unique connection and evangelism opportunities which support our heart mission to see all come to know Jesus Christ and belong to a community of believers.
Homes of Hope also builds a community across all campuses of families who have a passion for meeting this specific need. We hope to create a culture within Christ Community of those who care for and love on vulnerable children and their families.
