Love Heals Trauma

Elizabeth Beseke, Minnesota State Director

When I heard the statement, “Trauma blocks love but love heals trauma” by Frank Anderson, a conversation quickly flashed in my mind. I remember it well. My Family Coach and I were sitting in a coffee shop with mom sharing how Safe Families for Children works. The response is often the same. First, disbelief and second, skepticism … and rightfully so. Salina was no different. Her posture and crossed arms said it all. “Why would complete strangers want to help me?” Salina’s body language was well-founded. She had been impacted by her personal experience in the foster care system. It was a foreign concept that a group of people would be motivated by their faith to love without strings attached; to be extended family. However skeptical, Salena partnered with Safe Families. Her children were all hosted, and she willingly moved forward in a relationship with her Circle of Support: Nancy, Tamara, Steph, and me. 

Fast forward two years. A lot has changed. To continue reading….

Safe Families For Children serves families who lack social networks and live in isolation without support of family and friends dealing with crises such as homelessness, unemployment, child abuse, domestic violence, medical emergencies and alcohol/drug rehabilitation.

Safe Families for Children helps provide radical hospitality to families in crisis.
