One of the organization that Beaverton Foursquare serves alongside is Safe Families (part of Kindred Partners). There office will soon be part of the Beaverton Resource Center on the B4Church campus. They are always looking for people (families, small groups, couples, individuals) who will lend a helping hand to families in crisis. Safe Families is a statewide initiative that endorses the church in helping families who would otherwise fall into the DHS network. If you’d like to learn more about how you can participate, please contact Bethany Woodard at email@example.com.
As an example of the kinds of weekly requests made, here is the most recent one we received:
HOST FAMILY NEED
URGENT: We have a single Mom of two kiddos, a 4-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son. They need hosting starting this coming Monday through Friday. This Mom is needing this week to attend a crucial legal proceeding out of state and needs this hosting in order to attend. They live in North Portland and are being supported by another faith-based agency. If you are interested in this need please reach out to Bethany at firstname.lastname@example.org to hear more.
Second Ask: We have a precious single mom of a 2 ½-year-old little boy who desperately needs time to address medical and mental health needs without her little one in tow. She would SO benefit from 1-2 days a week of day hostings. Even one day a week would be amazing! She lives in the Cedar Mill area at the intersection of Cornell and Murray. Please contact Bethany at email@example.com if you would like to hear more about this mom and her needs.
