Nine Days of Joy


One Bloomington host mom writes…

“My husband and I were privileged to care for a precious three-year-old girl through Safe Families while her mother sought housing. What may have been a two or three month stay with us turned out to be only nine days. But those nine days were such a joy for us! I had been praying that the Lord would use us in some way, and that we would do something for him that took us out of our ‘comfort zone’.

He blessed us immeasurably with the opportunity to help someone in need in a ‘dark hour’ of the mother’s life. We gave our heart and soul during that short time and we were richly rewarded! Safe Families provides a much needed service and a wonderful opportunity for those who are called.”

Safe Families is not only a blessing to the Bloomington families that are privileged to host a child, it is also a blessing to the vulnerable parents in our town that are temporarily not able to care for their children. You can make more stories like this happen by making a one-time gift to Safe Families during our #FamiliesGivingHope campaign. Read more about our fundraiser and make a gift here.
