MSCH Allows Children to Look to the Future
When children first come to us, they are typically focused on one thing, daily survival. As they adapt to the safety and security of their new surroundings, the children can finally experience hope and look to the future. They become ready for new opportunities for growth. Their decision making changes as they learn to cope based on the new abilities they acquire from the successes they have made through the balance of programs and guidance.
The boy’s houses and staff have ventured into the mountains, where they become a part of a life-changing experience in nature. They learn to rely on self and others, as they embark on these team building opportunities of hard work, self-discipline, perseverance, and courage.
Hiking in the mountains, playing group games, and cooking meals as they learn valuable lessons to work while enjoying time together and strategizing as they built camaraderie.
These trip goals encourage the discovery of personnal identity by learning who they are at a very basic level. These excursions have fostered self-confidence through accomplishing deeper goals on personal and group levels.
Members of our Board and staff have shared talks to inspire the young men to achieve greater accomplishments in their lives.
Paul says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13, NIV) and in Proverbs 27:17 the Bible says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another”.
Mountain experiences are great opportunities for the young men to grow individually and collectively with memories that will serve them for a long time.
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
The simplest and most common way to make a gift to Mountain States Children’s Home is by giving a monetary gift. Not only are these gifts the simplest, but they are also among the most important. You may want to specify which project you would like to support, or your gift can be undesignated.
