Merry Christmas One and All!
At AfidenceIT we love spreading Christmas cheer. With that in mind, we are once again sending the money that we would have spent on Christmas cards and postage, to a local ministry.
This year, we have chosen The Glen at St. Joseph as the recipient of this $500 gift. The Glen at St. Joseph helps single moms break out of the cycle of poverty. By providing them with necessary resources, The Glen is able to help these women provide a more secure future for themselves and their children.
Why the Glen? “According to U.S. Census Bureau, out of 12 million single parent families in 2013, more than 80% were headed by single mothers. Today 1 in 4 children under the age of 18 --- a total of about 17.5 million --- are being raised without a father and nearly half (45%) live below the poverty line.” (singlemotherguide.com) Our future depends on today’s children, and The Glen is giving them HOPE.
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” Hebrews 6:19
Professionally staffed, The Glen provides hope to these women and their children with one-on-one coaching and counseling, life skills training, vocational assessment testing, and the assistance necessary to pursue a secondary education. Spiritual growth is encouraged through a Christ-centered exploration of their relationship with God.
