Wish List-One Child at a Time

Please LIKE our Facebook Page to stay in touch and find out when new projects are posted.

Every child needs to know that they are loved and supported. Each month, I strive to provide for care packages for the 6 kids at one of Koinonia’s emergency shelters, called the Koinonia Connections House. It is for kids ages 7-18, and it houses both girls and boys. I believe that with consistent care,  prayers, and support, healing can occur at all stages of life and for all involved.

If you’d like to help me, please see the latest service project below. You can purchase the items off the links provided, shop for items on your own and drop them with Renee Cain at Koinonia or myself. Please email me with questions at TheLoveInActionProject@gmail.com.

A. Calming Room for Large Emotions:

The Koinonia Connections House is in deep need of a new shed that they can place in the backyard and make into a calming room. Some of the kids have such intense emotions that they need a separate place to go calm down and de-escalate. If you’d like to donate money to the shed or purchase the shed for them, please let me know. Once in, it would be great to fill it with bean bag chairs, a soft rug, occupational therapy toys, and an AC unit.
