Safe Homes of Love Program

Budget: $92,400  |  Category: Housing
Population Served: Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)

Program Description:
Christian Homes for Children erected 'permanent' single family homes of love more than 30 years ago for abused and neglected children. These beautiful structures were four bedroom, three bath residences with carpeting and central air conditioning dedicated to the service of God's children. However, the "Great Recession" has wreaked havoc with our ministry for we were forced to sell our permanent homes of love and relocate some of our children and families into temporary private homes throughout the South Florida community. Despite these facts, Christian Homes for Children remains steadfast in its mission to shelter destitute children by way of direct rental support at the cost of $7700 per month. We want to rebuild permanent homes for God's children. But in today's market, the cost of reconstruction of our five permanent homes will be about $1,000,000. As you can see the challenge is great. The very survival of this long standing ministry over the long term will depend on the power of love, faith, and hope.
