Derek's House

Daily we support, strengthen and train our houseparents as they minister to the boys.  The issues they face vary and provide unique challenges to love and unlock the boy's hearts.  Each day, the family eats, plays, works, studies, worships, counsels, talks, exercises and does life together.  The boys are given many opportunities to learn, explore new things, process their past and emotions, dream about the future and develop their unique skills and giftings.  We continue to train the houseparents and support staff weekly on attachment, trauma and wounding, effective discipline, shame, inner healing and parenting tools.  As we support them through the challenges and the celebrations, we laugh, cry, pray and learn together.  It’s beautiful!
