A sweet message of thanks from a sweet little girl

Ashley’s life had been a living nightmare. Today, she is so grateful for the life change made possible by donors, supporting churches, ministry partners and everyone else who supports CCHO.

National Foster Care Month

National Foster Care Month is a great time for us to celebrate Encourage Foster Care families and all that they do to help kids heal from neglect, abuse and trauma. We invite you to visit the Encourage blog where we’ve started a new series called “Blessings Found in Fostering” to share what they are learning and the sweet God moments along the way.

Thank you from Katie (Story 44 of 50)

Katie needed to feel safe. She needed to feel loved. Thanks to donors like you, Katie found the support, therapy and love she needed at CCHO. She was baptized during her time at CCHO, and today she lives with a new foster family. Katie wanted to say “thank you” for all you’ve done for her!

The Kandel Family (Story 19 of 50)

The Kandel Family (Story 19 of 50)

When Julie Kandel and her husband Ron began their foster and adoption journey in 1991, they couldn’t have imagined they would one day have 18 children (including three biological daughters). Theirs is an incredible story of answering God’s call for their lives and their family, of trusting during each step of the process, and of persevering through incredible tragedy to provide a safe haven for young children in need of a loving home.

A guided imagery narrative (Story 18 of 50)

A guided imagery narrative (Story 18 of 50)

When new residents arrive at CCHO, our therapy team writes a guided imagery narrative from the perspective of the child. These narratives are designed to take the reader on a journey through each child’s past while describing their fears, abuse and trauma in detail. Listening to the guided imagery helps CCHO’s residential staff fully understand what the child has been through so they can approach negative behaviors with empathy and compassion.
