Giving Children a Safe Place to Grow

By Steve and Carla McRee

“But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread Your protection over them, that all who love Your name may be filled with joy.”       —Psalm 5:11 (NLT)

One of the saddest things we hear over and over from women is that they wish their home had been a safe place to grow up. Many were neglected and abused by their own families — people who were supposed to love and protect them.

We can’t turn back the clock — but today we can help these hurting families build a better future:

  • We can provide safe refuge for these precious women and their children as they build new lives.
  • We can help them build a strong foundation in the love and grace of Jesus.
  • We can help moms build the skills they need to provide for their kids and parent them wisely.
  • We can give children a stable, secure environment where they can focus on learning and growing instead of worrying about their next meal or where they will sleep.

Together, we can help mothers give their children a healthy legacy rather than continuing a cycle of destruction. We thank God every day for your support!
