The Neighborfood Event is about our local community, coming together to have a good time but at the end of the day making a difference in the lives of others.
Today I want to spotlight OCA, who is doing some absolutely amazing work in our communities.
First is Orphan Care Alliance, they are currently implementing a program called Safe Families which OCA has decided the funds raised from Neighborfood will be directed towards that program. Their goal is to create an additional host family for the program, each host family cost $200 to start, this cost covers background checks and initial training of the families just to name a few of the many costs associated with this program. Host Families are volunteers who open their homes to children, while their parents resolve short-term crises. Safe Families, a national program of which OCA is the regional implementor, provides a safety net for families in crisis. Children in homes where families are facing crises often suffer neglect or abuse. If the crises does not get resolved, the children may be taken from their home to be placed into state custody.
