It Takes a Village
by Kate Swanson, SFFC Wisconsin Chapter
When you hear the phrase “it takes a village” who do you think of? Who is in your village that has allowed you to be strong and supported? Who supported you while you chased your dreams, took positive risks, made mistakes, gave you advice, prayed with and for you, loved you? Who has taken the time to get to know you and walk alongside you in love and support? I have been incredibly blessed with a strong village, and I know my life wouldn’t be the same without them.
I want to expand my village and bless someone else with some of the love I’ve been blessed with, and I often wondered how I would do that– then I found Safe
Families for Children.
Everyday I wonder how I got so blessed. How was I chosen to be this loved, this supported,
this chased? I have a village and a strong one at that. We were designed to be together in
community— God’s has called us to love our neighbors.
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.
