100 Reasons

WHAT IS 100 REASONS?

100 Reasons is a financial campaign designed to mobilize the existing resources of Palmer Home for Children and expand those capabilities to Rescue and Restore the lives of many more vulnerable children.

Building on the foundation of Palmer Home’s 120-year legacy, we are poised to respond to the emerging crisis of children from broken and complicated situations. This mandate is both urgent and scriptural, and we are inviting you to join us as we embark on this campaign.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF 100 REASONS?

100 Reasons seeks to fund the following missional goals:

RESCUE:

Over the past 12 months, we have positioned our organization to become the first point of contact for vulnerable children – the abused, neglected, and abandoned. 100 Reasons will allow us to establish a hub that will receive regional inquiries 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This new entity will proactively redirect the path of vulnerable children who typically land in state care or fall through the cracks. Partnering with agencies, counselors, judicial networks and other faith-based organizations, children will be directed to us first. Our Rescue team works to ensure a safe placement within our own organization or with other licensed partners that share our values. With this new capability, we are committed to rescuing 100 children per year.

RESTORE:

Today, we serve approximately 75 children on our residential campuses. 100 Reasons will enable us to double that number, expanding Palmer Home’s residential capabilities by adding new cottages and a wellness center. These services will be provided in the context of spiritual principles that honor our commitment to introduce the love of God to the children in our care.

Jonah’s Journey, Palmer Home’s foster care ministry, currently serves approximately 40 children. 100 Reasons will expand this network across multiple states and eventually provide a safe, Christian home to 500 children. In order to impact these lives, resources are needed for caregiver recruitment, training and certification, and the staffing necessary to administer the program.

Our approach to care, Whole Child Initiative, has produced exceptional results for the children at Palmer Home. 100 Reasons honors our mission to reach as many children as possible by providing online tools and services that will transform the lives of children across the globe. With the use of modern technology, the insights and best practices used at Palmer Home will now be available to other organizations caring for vulnerable children.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN 100 REASONS?

The success of 100 Reasons, and quite literally the lives of countless children, depends on you. As we move forward, we ask that you prayerfully consider making an impact through an annual operating commitment, a capital pledge, and an estate/planned gift.
