headbands for haven home

Hello & happy Monday!

I wanted to share something with you that's been on my heart lately.
As you might know, I'm a life group leader at my church for 11th grade girls.
This is my second year leading, though it had quite a few firsts...
This year two of my girls in my group came from a home,
"We are a Christ-centered home which teaches
Transitional Living Skills to At-Risk Teen Moms and their babies,
keeps these moms with their babies, and encourages positive self-worth."
their mission:
                                                       To educate and strengthen family
values by providing safe housing
and nurturing guidance to teen
moms and their children
---------------------
Immediately, I felt a sense of responsibility.
These girls needed to know how much I cared for them.
More importantly, they needed to know God LOVES,
values, and desires a relationship with them.
I can't begin to tell you how many Wednesday nights
I would leave church with tears in my eyes & a heavy heart..
wanting to make a difference, but not really knowing how.

This home is right here in our York County community &
frankly, they need some help financially & with their facility.
They have the potential to make a HUGE impact
in the lives of these teenage girls and their children.
As leaders of our high schoolers, we decided to do something to make a difference.
You might've seen on my IG pictures of mason jars to be filled with change.

As a group, we are currently are collecting change--to make a change.
The money that is raised will be directly donated to them--
to pay their bills, home repairs, and to meet the needs of those they house.
And this Saturday our leaders & students will be working there:
building, cleaning, fixing & just going and doing what they need done.
My heart aches for these girls to know that they are valued.
And if somehow we can do things for them that
show they matter & where they are in this moment is truly a blessing.

Ever since we started this project;
I felt compelled to help in a different way.
Adam encouraged me to use the resources I already have.
That's when I realized I would make something--
So that brings me to the headbands

They are simple, versatile, comfortable, and best part:
the proceeds will help out a really great organization!
