YOU CAN HELP CHILDREN JUST LIKE JESSICA When Jessica was a child, she endured a lot of pain and suffering. When she was just eight years old, she was placed in our care at Alabama Baptist Children’s Homes & Family Ministries (ABCH). “When I came to ABCH, I was very scared, but they provided me with the love and nurture that every child is supposed to receive . . . ,“ said Jessica. “They provided me with the coun- seling I needed to process all the trauma I’d been through. They showed me what it truly is to be loved through God’s grace. The house parents, social workers, and even the office staff were so amazing.” Because of people like you, Jessica was in a safe environment where she could thrive and experience the love of Christ. Not only that, she could dream of a brighter future. “ABCH was able to help me go to college and get not one, but two degrees. I recently graduated . . . and am now a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW).” She recently joined our ministry as a social worker to help children from hard places, just as she had been.
