Description Child SHARE is a statewide program that recruits new foster parents, and provides material and spiritual support to foster families.
Population Served Adults

Pearl's Hope provides housing and an array of support services for single mothers and their children. Most importantly, we assist in keeping families together. Because too many shelters cannot accommodate large families or boys over the age of 13, many families are forced to place their children with friends or relatives while mothers work to get back on their feet. Fortunately, the spacious living environment of the cottages at the Frances E. Willard Ministry Center allows us to accept families of most any size and children (boys and girls) up to age 18.
