To provide an environment of social, physical,
educational and spiritual support for
children in need.
To develop their abilities and interests, and encourage them to reach their maximum potential as they mature.
To ultimately build several permanent homes on the ranch where children can live for extended periods of time with the support of dedicated houseparents and staff.
Every Child Deserves a Stable Home is such a fitting statement, particularly at this time of year. As of November 14th of this year, the Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS) reports 14,672 children in out of home care. Fifty-eight of these children are living in a shelter. This population is divided as follows: 2 aged 6-12 months; 23 are 1-6 months and 33 are less than 1 month old. If that does not tug at your heart strings, you are tougher than I. If you have followed us for anytime, you must know of our great need. What can an organization as blessed as we are need? House Parents. Short story, without more parents we are limited on the number of children we can take in. With more house parents full time and another set of part time we can add to our capacity and provide a stable home to more children. What is the problem, why is this need so difficult to fill? 1) The position of house parent is tough and not for the faint of heart. 2) Our children come after experiencing great trauma which leads to things like ADHD and PTSD. They are troubled and hurting. 3) It is a unique position for those who are called of the Lord for it is the Holy Spirit which allows us to minister and reach the hearts of hurting children. 4) Our application process is a lengthy one and sometimes off-putting. 5) Many times those who love children in such a way as to be interested in a position such as this have children of their own. It is best that their children are separated from our placed children. We currently do not have that option. How to fund such an expansion on our homes is currently a discussion of the Board of Directors. Please pray for the work here, for the children, the staff, our need for house parents, and future expansion.
