Parenting Support
FaithBuilders walked alongside and supported over 100 teen moms

and at-risk families. We also provided much needed diapers and wipes

to school daycares that care for the children of these teen moms,

while they obtain their education.

Mentoring
Although it is difficult to quantify, one of the most important things FaithBuilders did in 2015

was to provide mentoring to families in crisis, teen moms, students, young adults, foster kids,

single moms, homeless, etc. We are passionate about serving these populations and

feel blessed to be able to come alongside, support and mentor them.



Support
FaithBuilders continues to partner with DCCCA and provide dinner

twice monthly to the foster children and parents in the Connections program,

as well as mentoring support to the teenagers in this program.

FaithBuilders was once again honored to support DCCCA in their regional

foster care Christmas parties. We wrapped and provided gifts for over

700 foster care children and supplied food and party supplies for 4 foster care

Christmas parties throughout the state.



Provision

We provided school supplies for 69 local children and also provided supplies directly to partner schools in our city.

FaithBuilders joined forces with Hunter Health Clinic for a community baby shower to benefit 70 uninsured mothers-to-be.

We provided diapers and baby supplies to their low-income obstetrical clinic,

FaithBuilders supported a family grieving the loss of their 5 day old baby,

by coordinating the funeral, assisting with expenses for a memorial, and providing a family dinner.
