Our passion has always been to find and help troubled kids, runaways and those who were floundering. Floundering to us is that struggle to prevent from drowning. It’s a horrible place to be because you’re giving everything to not drown, but you can’t seem to get to a place where you can swim out of your situation. We’ve been so privileged to be able to reach out and pull people out of a floundering situation, and put them in safe place.
We’ve known and believed since we first met through and the first days of our marriage, that God promised us a place where we could take in hurting, struggling people and provide refuge, hope and restoration. Over the years, we had over 100’s of “strays” as we called them, come to live with us and our three boys. We held regular jobs, and kept busy raising our family and serving our church. We knew God called us to serve Him by loving on broken people.
