“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
Volunteer and make a difference in a child’s life.
God calls each of us to care for the weak and vulnerable members of our communities. When we spend time serving children in foster care, we are contributing to God’s plan of bringing restoration and healing to the lives of the powerless. Not only are we meant to give our resources, but we are also called to give our time and energy to helping others.
There are many ways to get involved and serve children in care. We are asking individuals, families, congregations, small groups, and businesses to join us as volunteers. We have 55,000 sq. ft. of building space to maintain and keep clean, as well as 43, 800 meals a year to prepare for our kids. We have opportunities to get involved in both of these areas, and we ask you to consider joining us regularly as volunteers.
Maybe you are empty nesters and you’re missing your own kids. Become a volunteer and interact with the kids at LYDIA. Maybe you are a church small group looking for a way to serve the city of Chicago. Become a volunteer and help meet an important need in your own community. Maybe you are an individual with a few extra hours to spare in your week. Become a volunteer and spend those hours investing in children at LYDIA.
Thank you for supporting these amazing kids and for helping to bring HOPE, HEALING, and HOME to children in foster care.
