Dear Faithful Partner,

Can you imagine a world where every child knows how deeply they are loved and learns how to show love in return? You can help us make that a reality for Maryland’s most vulnerable children this Mother’s Day! By making a donation in honor of the special woman in your life who taught you how to love, local moms facing difficult circumstances will receive the support they need to love and provide for their children.

Our Mother’s Day theme this year—learning to show and share love—was inspired by Nia. In her video testimony, Nia shares that while fulfilling her calling as a foster mom, she is reminded of her mother who grew up in foster care. Someone poured into Nia’s mom, showering her with the unconditional love of a family and because of that, her mom learned how to love her. Now, Nia chooses to share her great capacity to love with foster children!

In FY17 we served 130 vulnerable children and parents through our Safe Families for Children, Treatment Foster Care, and Family Counseling services. We also provided 721 individuals with backpacks, Christmas gifts, or other material assistance.

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. John 13:34

We continue to promote our monthly giving program as the best way to give! The ongoing support of this passionate community of donors, who we call Family Allies, helps ensure that Building Families has resources to be there for Maryland’s most vulnerable children and families.

Your gift will help us meet the financial need of $100,000 to reach our total annual goal of $250,000 in support of this vital work. By making a gift this Mother’s Day, you will be honoring the important role that moms play in teaching us how to love. Make a donation to begin making a difference in a family’s life today!  Thank you for your generosity!
