These kids have had some hard times in their young lives. Many have been neglected or abused. Here's one of their needs posted on the NAOMI Website, "Do you have a Christ-centered heart for Native American children?
Do you believe God gifted you to nurture and minister to these little ones who are the least among us?
The NAOMI staff have been living out their call in our loving Christ-centered homes
for abused and neglected Native American children for over 25 years.
They would welcome you to join them as house parents.
Perhaps this in not your call from God, but you can still help by referring a married couple and by passing this request on to others including your church and all those in your sphere of influence.
Please get the word out, pray for this need and follow God's leading for you.
Contact Genevieve or John with replies, questions and suggestions. Thank you. Genevieve Skidmore, Executive Director genevieve at thenaomihouse.org John Meyer, President BOD jdmeyer43 at gmail.com"
We're going to make this a monthly event. Our next plan is to paint the kids rooms with colors they choose and help to paint. (And we'll bring the bounce house back! If you want to get involved in helping the least of these, please call us, 716-830-8240.
If you can't be with us in person, you can support NAOMI House prayerfully and financially. You can donate directly to NAOMI House through PayPal by clicking on this link, I want to sow into the needs of these children.
Here's some more information from their website and a link to a great video that will touch your heart.
"We are told that it takes a village to raise a child. However, when a child has been abused and wounded, it takes more than just one village—it takes many. NAOMI is one small village, working with many others to help hurt children recover from child abuse.
Native American children suffer from abuse at one of the most alarming rates in our country. Child Sexual abuse in Native America is both epidemic and holocaustic. 90% of the children that come to live at Naomi House are the victims of child molestation." - Message from Linda, Founder of NAOMI House
