The wonderful love of the couple and the special event

Even though our kids are being served in their homes, they are eager for things to normalize so that they can rejoin their friends at their Hope Centers. They miss having access to special skills training, vocational studies, recreation services, and group field trips. They miss studying in a quiet place like a library where they can choose from a variety of books and do their homework assignments. They miss being part of a sports team, blending their voices during choir practice, exercising their leadership strengths, initiating programmatic changes, and enjoying the growth opportunities that will help them reach their goals.

This also violates Article 34, which states that “Governments should protect children from all forms of sexual exploitation and abuse,” as children are five times as likely to experience sexual assault in adult prisons than juvenile detention centers. Children are 36 times more likely to commit suicide after being held in adult facilities than those who have been held in juvenile facilities. This violates Article 27, which states that children “have the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical and mental needs.”
More than ever, children are ready to support their loved ones and communities. They want to be a part of protecting others and creating a better tomorrow by planting trees, studying hard to become medical professionals, and joining the military.

They miss being surrounded by the things that bring HOPE to them and others.

That is why it is very important for Child Champions to partner with parents and caregivers. When we work together, we create stability and consistency for children whether they are home or at their Hope Centers. As children grow in their faith, they see the value of living a healthy, safe, and loving life — they’re excited to share this connection with God and their loved ones! And families need that perfect relationship right now in the midst of job loss, high inflation, scarcity of food, and times of uncertainty.
