February 2024

At YAIPak Outreach everything starts with the Extravagant Love of Christ. God pursues each one of us to redefine our identity, restore our dignity, and remind us how deeply we are loved. With a focus on women, children and veterans, we are witnessing that power of Extravagant Love each day.


Our warehouse for donation drop-offs and volunteer hours is located at 1255 Paradise Hill Rd.


We are open for donations and volunteers on Mondays from 9am to 12pm, Wednesdays from 12 to 2pm, and Thursdays from 5 to 8pm.


 

YAIPak Outreach in the Community

Dear Gator,


You have forever impacted our lives. From your witty comebacks to your ingenuity, you were an exceptional human being. Being homeless didn’t stop you from caring about your country. And it certainly didn’t stop you from being our friend.


Some of our own children/grandchildren called you grandpa. The things that you taught them about honeysuckles, growing vegetables, learning to save rainwater, to the very simple things of life, such as bluebird eggs, and the sweet little nest they build. We will forever be better because of you. When the days were challenging, you didn’t give up. You never let us leave without a prayer and we were forever praying for you.


Though we are sad you will not be here with us, we are rejoicing in that you have a mansion that we are sure you are touring as our hearts are healing. For as much as you burned simple history into a walking stick with extreme delicacy and artwork, you have also burned your memories into our hearts that we will walk with forever. We love you, Gator. ~ Sherry

Your Generosity at Work

Because of YOUR generosity, we are able to help many families just like these! Foster families sacrifice a lot but with the love of this community behind them they are equipped with all they need.


Foster care is really hard. It’s also really rewarding. It takes an ordinary season of life and creates extraordinary moments.


Little by little you learn the kids in your care. You settle into routine and rhythm and sometimes expect that it will just go with the flow.


Even though that’s not always the case, it’s always worth the effort you put into it.


Whether it’s making sure kids are clothed properly, or having hard conversations, or keeping them accountable for actions that aren’t generally accepted, the job of a foster parent (really any parent) isn’t over.


Day to day we look at the kids in care and wonder what’s next. When they ask questions about the case, we come up with more creative ways to say “I don’t know.” When there hearts are broken after a call or visit, we are there to listen, support and love them with all we have.


They don’t see the tears we cry and they don’t need to. Because at the end of every long day, we know that we will get up and do it all over again, as long as we have the privilege of saying YES to these sweet souls.


Foster care is hard. Parenting is hard. Raising kids you are still getting to know is hard. But looking at a child that doesn’t have all they need is also hard.


Choose your hard.
