It’s no secret that Safe Families for Children is passionate about reaching struggling families all over the nation in the years ahead.
In order to achieve this we need to find some envisioned local partners who are willing to be guinea pigs. We were absolutely delighted therefore when All Nations Church in Wolverhampton approached us back in January 2014 to begin a conversation about working together.
From the first meeting it quickly became apparent that we shared a vision and a passion to see the church mobilised to help families in crisis, and in particular to offer hospitality to the most vulnerable and to prevent children being taken into the care system – which is a particularly big issue in Wolverhampton.
Safe Families for Children, Wolverhampton will be formally launched in October, when Safe Families for Children’s founder Dr Dave Anderson will be in the country and able to officially ‘cut the ribbon’ on the new partnership. The initial plan is to recruit and train volunteers from within the thousand-strong congregation of All Nations, and then once the work is up and running to expand outwards from there.
Pastor Rick Kaul said
“We’re really excited to be partnering with Safe Families and believe that this will have a huge impact on struggling families within Wolverhampton.”
