Fear of Relapse – Sanford Founder Rae Green in Bridge Magazine

"We all miss our families while being quarantined in the building the last two weeks, but we are called to these women and children. They miss their loved ones also. Please continue to pray for them."

Without you, this photo that speaks volumes about the work God does here would not be possible. Without you, our dedicated director and staff would not be able to shelter in with them and take care of, feed, house, protect and serve the remaining 240 women and 30 children quarantined at The Lovelady Center during the COVID-19 crisis.

You may remember Lovelady staff member Tiffany Ramming, pictured above "visiting" her husband Lukas through the closed door, as well as pictured below in her before and after photo.

Please consider partnering with us financially during this crisis. Even $20 will have impact in the lives of our women and children.

YOU are the reason they can remain safe in the building and be cared for!  We appreciate you very much!
YES! I want to help during the COVID-19 crisis!
