Honor a loved one by keeping our newest home operational – one day at a time.
Thanks to supporters like you, we quickly raised the funds to construct another home. The Atherton Home will be completed in 2014 and ready to provide “A Safe Place to Be a Child” to many more children. However, having the house constructed is only the beginning. In order to care for the children on a daily basis, provide loving Home Parents that are there for them 24/7, and also licensed counselors and support staff…we need YOUR help.
Did you know:
- We served a total of 49 children in 2012
- On average, one home will serve 16 abused and neglected children during a year
- It takes a little over $100,000 to operate one of our homes for a year
- That equals about $300 per day, per home
We invite you to fund a day in 2014. You choose the day…your anniversary, a loved one’s birthday or other significant date. Donate in honor of a loved one, and we’ll give you a magnet to present to them, letting them know you’ve donated in their honor. We’ll also send you a thank you near your day – letting you know what the children are doing that week and reminding you to pray for them on your day.
You can simply print this commitment form, filling in the required information and mailing it along with your donation to us. Or, donate online, making sure to mention in the Special Instructions box that you’re funding the Atherton Home for a Day, and let us know which day in 2014 you want to fund. Also feel free to mention the significance of the day to you.
We, and our children, thank you for your willingness to get our newest home up and running day by day!
