New Song Advocate
Abandonment. Poverty. Neglect. When these troubling characteristics are combined in the life of a child, chaos reigns in their lives. Kids growing up in these situations frequently end up as homeless adults, behind prison bars, and in poverty themselves. Indiana has a large number of orphaned and fatherless children who are living in poverty. In fact, 35% of Indiana children are currently growing up in single-parent homes without their biological father, and 40% of all newborn babies are born out of wedlock. (Kids Count Data Center, 2012; U.S. Census Bureau)
A serious problem with a positive solution.
Children who have suffered from fatherlessness, neglect, and poverty need a nurturing community setting that addresses all four facets of life: physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual. That community is New Song Mission. Our children’s home campus is a warm, welcoming place for kids who need safe, loving homes and a private education.
