Your financial support over the past year has resulted in some pretty amazing opportunities — partnering with Liberty Flames Football being one.
Last season, we partnered with the football team to pilot a first-in-the-nation program of champions helping to keep at-risk children in healthy, safe, loving homes and out of the foster care system.
“It just feels great when you help others. That’s all we want to do in this program, we just want to help others. Be a light to others.”
Each week, players responded to needs of children and families across the country using CarePortal, one of our partners who connect the needs of at-risk families entered by child welfare workers to nearby churches and communities who have signed up to help. Every week, these young athletes were exposed to the foster care crisis and learned what it meant to be part of the solution.
The impact? Monumental: 551 at-risk kids helped, 199 vulnerable families served, with a $161,000 economic impact. We were so grateful to the coaches, staff and players for making a difference both on and off the field. And we are excited to announce… we’re teaming up again to meet critical needs of families across the country!
Thank you Liberty Flames Football for leading the way and being a Voice for the Vulnerable. What a privilege it is to partner with you and play our humble part in a great God story in our own nation.
