Love Providence is the city renewal project of Sanctuary Church that works to provide hands-on ways of loving the city of Providence. It’s under this banner that all three of our congregations engage in mercy and justice. This looks like everything from investing in our neighborhood public schools, which are chronically underfunded and underperforming, to providing support and care to RI foster families via our Wrap Around outpost, to responding tangibly to specific needs in the community as they arise.
LOVE PVD SCHOOLS
We want to take the work we’ve started farther. Making sure more schools are sponsored, immediate needs are met, teachers are properly resourced, and families are reached.
In partnership with Bags of Hope, Sanctuary is helping to provide a bag of gifts to every child in foster care in the state alongside a special thank you lunch for 400 DCYF social workers at their central offices.
ABOUT WRAP AROUND
WE, THE CHURCH, HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO WRAP AROUND BIRTH PARENTS, FOSTER FAMILIES, WAITING FAMILIES, AND ADOPTIVE FAMILIES ON THEIR JOURNEY. BY PARTNERING WITH EXISTING COMMUNITY RESOURCES, CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR FAMILIES AND LEADERS, AND SUPPORTING OUR CHURCH AND COMMUNITY BY MEETING THE TANGIBLE NEEDS THIS ISSUE PRESENTS, WE CAN ALL CHOOSE TO SAY “YES.”
“YES” TO PERMANENCE AND BELONGING FOR CHILDREN; “YES” TO WRAPPING AROUND THESE COURAGEOUS KIDS AND FAMILIES; “YES” TO FULFILLING THE VERY ROLE GOD INTENDED FOR THE CHURCH.
