In 2018, our church learned of these staggering statistics:
-In one year, over 700 calls are made to DCFS from Logan County alone.
-On average, DCFS is able to act on 10% of those cases.
-This leaves over 600+ cases in which children/families are experiencing chaos, danger, or neglect and have no place to turn for help.
So, our church decided to act.
By partnering with Safe Families for Children, our church has created a network of love through which families in our church "temporarily host children and provide a network of support to families in crisis while they get back on their feet."
