Through our Shade Tree Family Outreach Program, we are providing family outreach and intervention programs, family strengthening initiatives and critical services to families and children who are navigating the child welfare system. All programs and service offered through Shade Tree Family Outreach are aimed at supporting and blessing children and families dealing with the dependency/child welfare and foster care systems; meeting emergency and family preservation needs; expanding the ministry reach of Place of Hope. Shade Tree Family Outreach also promotes child abuse and neglect prevention and awareness, and child advocacy.
Since 2008, we have been able to bless over 25,000 children, young people and families through our Shade Tree Family Outreach program. Just in 2021, together with the generosity of our committed supporters, we were able to serve over 10,000 community members through this program! We are excited to see this program and these services expand to our south county campus at The Leighan and David Rinker Campus, and to the north on our newly acquired 11-acre campus in Stuart! To learn more about this program and how you can support it, email [email protected].
Place of Hope, Hands and Feet, and New Creation Missionary are working together in the Shade Tree Family Outreach Program to provide material support to families and children in need.
