We started The Neighbors Project in Michigan because we believe that every person deserves supportive friendship and tangible help from people who love them.
We want to see Families in hard seasons who feel isolated finding help and friendship to equip their family to stay safely together
Although I was initially very hesitant to jump into foster care, I love being a foster dad. It's taught me how to live in proximity to those who are hurting. Growing compassion for all people in hard situations has pushed me further into the world of being neighborly to everyone that I can. I'm passionate about seeing Neighbors meet the needs of Families around them and Families accepting help in the hard times of their lives.
After walking through a long season of hardship and grief, I've learned that the only way through is love. As our mission says, "Love is our greatest vocation". The fierce and unconditional love I've been shown on my darkest days is what motivates me to extend the same love to others who need support. I want to make sure that no family ever has to feel alone in a hard season which is why I'm so excited to launch The Neighbors Project in Michigan. Together, we can show love, offer support and make our circles bigger!
