One out of two marriages will end in divorce this year in America (US Census), leaving many single parents abandoned with inadequate resources to provide for themselves and their children, experiencing true "housing poverty." Adding to this statistic arre widows and never married families left with children to support and facing an uncertain future.
The Difference You can make
Thanks to caring benefactors who have "caught the vision", Shepherd's Village has provided housing and encouragement to more than 285 families and over 680 children.
Every family represents an opportunity for a fresh start. During their residency, 90% of the parents have moved from crisis and insufficient income, to establishing and pursuing major career goals. They have become students, accountants, real estate agents, dental hygienists, office managers, computer programmers, teachers and day care providers! Most importantly, they have healed and now bring hope to others who travel the same journey.
