Safe for the First Time: The Boys Home
The Boys Home exists by the grace of God and through His generous mercy. The organization launched this freedom ministry in May 2015. The home provides a safe haven and shelter for boys coming from very difficult, high risk environments. It is currently home to eight boys ranging from the ages of 8-12. A strong emphasis is placed on Christ-centered character development of each of the boys. Caregivers provide outstanding mentoring by knowing each one of the boys and their personalities. Here are just a few areas strongly stressed in developing each child to his full potential...
Spiritual - Each evening, the boys and their caregivers have devotions and a prayer time. Many times the boys ask pointed questions regarding God, Jesus and who they are in God's plan.
Academic - All the boys attend a public school near the home. Each of the caregivers come from educated backgrounds and guide the boys in every academic challenge.
Family - With the leadership of our caregivers, we strive to provide a family environment in which each child is meant to feel valued and included. At times, this is severely tested, but our God always comes through during the most difficult situations.
Request for prayer:
Recently the government has passed new requirements for licenses to run these sorts of homes. They are not providing any new licenses for homes for children unless the home has a minimum of 50 children and has 8000 square feet of space. None of our homes meet these requirements. Please pray for favor as we meet with officials and continue our endeavor to provide care for these children.
