“He had brought up Hadassah, that is Esther… for she had neither father nor mother.”—Esther 2.7
In the story of Esther, we read about Mordechai, who was carried away into exile from Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon. We hear how he cared for his orphaned cousin, Esther, and lovingly offered her a father’s wise counsel, guiding her through life’s tough decisions. We learn about how he stood by and guided Esther as she courageously saved the entire Jewish nation.
All children and young adults need wise counsel and loving guidance… no matter how old they are, or what their circumstances. Unfortunately, for many young people from abusive or neglectful homes, wise counsel and loving guidance is not to be found—especially in the crucial years following high school when they are faced with a myriad of important life decisions.
Did you know that Curt Landry Ministries fully supports a Safe House apartment in conjunction with the Bridge to Independence program in Jerusalem?
This apartment provides a home to hurting and abandoned young adults who have graduated from the adolescent residential care programs and have no family or support system for the next few pivotal years of their lives.
These young adults are at an age where they not only need a safe place to live and grow into maturity, but they also need loving guidance and wise counsel available during a time when many of life’s important choices will be made.
Fortunately for the five young ladies living in this Curt Landry Ministries sponsored apartment, they have a warm, loving family environment to come home
to after a day of serving in the IDF, performing National Service duties, or as they study in local universities. This is a safe place that ensures a sense of security and stability in each of their lives.
Upon arrival into the program, each of these young ladies individually agree upon a personalized development plan with the Bridge to Independence program staff. As time goes by—and as they learn and grow, maturing into responsible citizens—they are released from the program, with many new skills as mature, stable, and productive adults who will contribute greatly to society as they begin to take part in the Israeli and Jewish community life.
Today, the need for more Safe House apartments is overwhelming. As many young people are graduating daily from adolescent residential care programs, they too will need a safe place to live—a place that can provide a warm, loving environment, along with wise counsel and loving guidance.
All that these young people need is to be given a chance for greatness. Each one of them has dreams to do great things for their nation, and through Curt Landry Ministries we are giving YOU a chance, not just to sow into a project, but to sow into the heart of Israel.
Help give them a second chance in life—for greatness!
Curt Landry Ministries would love to expand our support to help more children in need—providing safe places for more and more young adults. Would you consider making your pledge today to help us do more for the children of Israel? I would ask that you prayerfully consider your pledge, and help us make the dream of a loving and stable home a reality for many more young adults who might otherwise be denied an opportunity for greatness!
