Join the Family

Become a Sponsor

 

Financial: At Palmer Home, we know that everything we do is an investment. When we feed, clothe, counsel, educate, and introduce faith to children, that changes their future in ways we can’t begin to imagine. If you or your business would like to make a more meaningful investment in the work of Palmer Home, financial sponsorship might be for you. For $12,000 you can support one child’s new story for an entire year at Palmer Home. If you’re interested in learning more about making a difference in this way, contact development@palmerhome.org.

 

 

Family: One incredible way to become more deeply involved in the ministry of Palmer Home is to bring a young person on one of our campuses into your family. A sponsor is an individual or family who chooses invest in the life of a child or siblings through relationship. Sponsorship looks a lot of different ways, but can involve bringing a child into your home for holidays, taking them to games or concerts on the weekends, showing up to support them in sports and other extracurricular activities, and generally making them a part of your family’s day-to-day life. Sponsors are intentional about giving a child at Palmer Home the opportunity to engage in life outside our campuses and creating a meaningful, sustainable relationship with that child.

Provide Respite Care

Another meaningful way to become involved at Palmer Home is to provide respite care on our campuses. Respite volunteers serve in a cottage for an evening or afternoon to provide a few hours “off duty” for our full-time house parents. This involves coming onto our campus and providing care for all of the children in a cottage, which gives house parents the opportunity to have some respite time to refuel and recharge. It’s a wonderful way to begin to establish relationships with our residents, but also an incredible way to serve our house parents who are on the front lines of making a difference at Palmer Home. To learn more about Respite Care, read about the Ferrils.  To volunteer, fill out an application.
