Northshore Enduring Hope
- Tuesday, 28 Feb 2017
This is the village at work on behalf of kids and families in the system! Through James Storehouse outreach, we were able to connect resources to the foster parents who attend this region’s first and only foster parent support group, Northshore Enduring Hope led by Doree Kelly. Southeastern Louisiana’s Pi Beta Phi Alumni Club came and offered a literacy program from Pre-K to 3rd grade. With kids lagging behind in reading due to family struggles and many transitions, this is a welcomed resource. Mercy Print Ministry was also in attendance to offer ongoing support to foster families and special event coordination for the kids to have fun outings on occasion. Ms. Terrilynn Bowe, a supervisor for child welfare, was also there to be a bridge of support and liaison which helps to strengthen the relationship between fosters and the system. Thank you to everyone working on behalf of the children! We love seeing all these empowering connections happening in our hub of love.
The Lake 94.7
- Friday, 17 Feb 2017
Thank you Lake 94.7 for inviting me on today to talk about the crisis in foster care we are facing (too many kids coming into the system and a lack of families to care for them) and how James Storehouse – Louisiana is helping to change that by providing critical resources that help expedite safe placements and keep our families supported. They asked us back in a few weeks to continue the dialogue. There is no dialogue more urgent than the one we need to have about children who desperately need loving families!

James Storehouse – Louisiana Family, how do you feel about being someone’s last hope?
A single mom was on the verge of losing her kids today due to poor living conditions until we stepped in and produced the game-changer she needed.
She was living in a tiny room with her 6 children, all sleeping on a deflated air mattress. Their living conditions had sunk beyond her abilities to correct, so her case worker reached out to us. I was told we were her last hope.
What a responsibility it is to be someone’s last hope. The only way to avoid removal was to land a section 8 that requires birth certificates for all her children to secure, which she didn’t have. James Storehouse – Louisiana Family, you provided those birth certificates today. You helped secure an apartment for this struggling family. You gave hope to a single mom. You kept siblings out of foster care and now they can stay together. They will continue to get the wrap around help they deserve to get stronger. Please keep this family in your prayers:) We will see them again at their house warming party!
