Provide hope & care to moms and families in your community.
In 1948, twelve years before ABCS was founded, a group of Christian women from the Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) began collecting a Mother’s Day Offering to raise support for ABCS. For the past 72 years, Arizona churches have participated in this traditional Mother’s Day Offering to benefit the ministry. Your church can help moms and families in your local community by collecting an online offering this Mother’s Day as together we provide hope and care. This is the first time in the 72-year history of the Mother’s Day Offering that we’re going virtual, due to the current COVID-19 restrictions.
As a social service agency providing essential resources, ABCS has remained open throughout the pandemic with some modifications to protect our staff, volunteers and families. The needs of families we serve are even greater now. As a result, demand for food boxes, diapers and wipes has increased. Through March 23,673 food boxes have been distributed, along with 4,809 clothing bags and 4,415 material assistance bundles of diapers and wipes. Most importantly, 21 decisions have been made to follow Christ, as our goal is to share love of Christ while meeting practical needs. To learn more about resources currently available across the state, go to abcs.org/resources.
