Families today face many challenges.  Some are torn apart because of violence, dysfunctional relationships, financial hardships, substance abuse or physical or mental illness – or all too often – a combination of all these factors.

You can help make a difference. Your donation can help provide wide-ranging support to families.  Your gift today will…

  • Help a child in need find a permanent, loving foster or adoptive home;
  • Help a struggling, at-risk teen gain the guidance and support he or she needs to grow into a responsible adult;  
  • Aid older adults so they may remain in the homes they cherish with the care they need for as long as possible;
  • Help to provide continued personal care for someone who has exhausted his or her financial resources.

For more than 150 years, Diakon has made a real difference in the lives of your neighbors. You can too!  

Together we make a real and important difference in the lives of others.  Please help Diakon continue to make worlds whole for hurting children and youth by donating generously today.
