DC127: Caring For Families In Our City
As a church community that deeply values and celebrates children, Grace Mosaic’s partnership with DC127 has been a natural fit to the way that our church can extend these passions and gifts to serve the community around us.
Through partnering with DC churches across all neighborhoods, denominations and demographics, DC127’s vision/mission is to reverse the foster care list in DC and is motivated by James 1:27: “Pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world,” a mission.
Through partnership with DC127’s Safe Families program, Grace Mosaic is coming alongside families in crisis so that children never have the need to enter into the foster care system at all. So many families within our community face immense challenges, whether homelessness, joblessness, addiction, or mental health issues, which are exacerbated into crises for families who face social isolation and lack of resources.
This is where Grace Mosaic’s partnership with the Safe Families program is able to make true impact – to build social support networks that can by coming alongside families in the midst of their crisis so that they can gain stability and remain united as a family. Whether through providing temporary care for children, mentoring youth, coming alongside parents in their journey to wellness, or simply providing meals, transportation, and other resources, each person in our church family can have a role in supporting the flourishing, protection and care of families in our community.
