Children's Resource Center
Children are often silent victims of addiction
A safe, stable home is important to a child’s physical and mental well-being and critical to his or her growth and learning. Sadly, children all over Appalachia are silently suffering because a parent or guardian is battling addiction. This can result in hunger, poor hygiene and even abuse. And statistics show that kids who are exposed to the traumas of addiction are more likely to abuse drugs when they get older. If one person would step into their lives and make a difference, the cycle of addiction can be broken.
We can’t let drugs steal the lives of the next generation
Children suffering neglect, abuse and hopelessness because of addiction in their family is a crisis. What we do today makes a difference tomorrow. That's why we can no longer look the other way or only focus our efforts on reacting to the problems of addiction later in life. We must act now and share the hope and love of Christ with those who need it most.
We give hope to children affected by addiction
Our Children's Resource Center is designed to provide short-term emergency relief to kids living in homes affected by active addiction and connect families to existing support systems and community resources. By responding to physical, emotional and spiritual needs, we hope to end the cycle of addiction and help these kids have happy and healthy lives.
