GIFT HOPE THIS #GIVINGTUESDAY AND ALL YEAR LONG
From the drug epidemic that’s ripping families apart to children in search of a safe place to call home, the need has never been greater for us all to take action and give lifesaving support and hope to so many. Sunrise Children’s Services is counting on your generosity to help kids and families in our state and we can’t do it without your help.
ONE FAMILY’S SUCCESS WITH SUNRISE
Carolyn moved with her husband and children to Kentucky and life was hitting them hard. She was pregnant and their six-year-old son, Donald, was dealing with survivor’s guilt from overcoming cancer at age two. Her husband was also starting a new job. Shortly after giving birth, Carolyn received notice that their landlord was selling their house and they had just three weeks to find a new home...
But then Sunrise found them.
Carolyn had this to say about the help her family received from Sunrise:
“We just thought we were getting services for Donald, but Sunrise realized there were real-life struggles going on in our family. Sunrise helped us with resources in trying to find a new home and made sure all three of our kids went to school with everything they needed, and that was very helpful. Sunrise was the only one that saved my family in the two-and-a-half years we lived in Kentucky."
The positive impact Sunrise had on Carolyn and her family remains to this day.
Carolyn recently shared with us, "You were the only friendly faces we had in our darkest times. The Sunrise employees who helped us became like family and they wanted the very best for all of us."
Will you join us in this fight and give as much as you can to help more families like Carolyn's?
