We as the church are commanded to care for children in difficult situations. The church has a common belief that the family is the foundation of a successful society. The church has the resources, relationally, professionally and financially, to reach this population and change the trajectory of our community and society as a whole.
Hope 1312 Collective seeks to help enable the church in this mission, by sharing stories, supporting and ultimately shaping them.
WHO WE ARE
Our efforts were launched in 2014 by a small group of community members, social workers, foster parents, youth pastors, business executives, who were tired of seeing kids linger in the foster care system and kids from hard places continue to struggle to find hope. We wanted to see resources leveraged for meaningful impact, see the church truly be the church, and lives changed through an encounter with Hope.
HOW WE GIVE HOPE
We provide hope by sharing the stories of children from hard places, including those who are at risk for entering foster care, those in foster care, and those waiting to be adopted.
We provide hope by offering platforms that support the stories of children from hard places by meeting tangible needs that when met, lighten the load of biological and foster families.
We provide hope through shaping experiences such as therapeutic camps and services for children from hard places. We also offer trauma informed training that will shape the community desiring to change the stories of these children.
