Kayla and Kenzie live together and support one another and their combined five children. While they support one another in a vareity of ways, the fathers of the children are rarely involved and the sisters have no local trustworthy family members to support them.
SFFC connected Kayla and Kenzie to a “Family Friend” who has come alongside the mothers, offering the things family and friends often do. This family friend offers regular child care, car rides, park dates and dinners. Kayla and Kenzie’s children join in weekend trips and the families share birthday celebrations. The family friend’s church family gives additional support. Genuine loving relationships have developed and grown.
This network of support has been enough to free Kayla to gain employment, adding to the income Kenzie provides, allowing the sisters to make progress to reaching their goal of strengthening the financial wellbeing of their family. And just as important, these connections are strengthening the social fabric of our community.
