Has Connected Families blessed or inspired your family?

Connected Families has become more than a library of programs and resources for parents. We are a community

The majority of Connected Families’ financial support comes from people who have benefitted from the ministry. So if you’ve benefitted, it’s because someone like you in our parent community contributed.

Would you consider helping Connected Families to continue growing this grace-filled community this year?

We are a parent community

We’ve heard from countless people that the Connected Families parent community has helped them feel less alone in their parenting journey.

Parents are joining us at the table, contributing their own ideas, stories, testimonies, encouragement, and finances. We’re doing this together.


The Connected Families community is showing up to the table!

Check back here throughout December to see the progress and celebrate with us.

Your gift!

If you are reading this, you’re at the table. You are likely contributing in one or more ways and are even connecting with others in this growing community.

Families continue to be impacted because of thousands of people around the world just like you, who have decided to pull up a seat at the table.

As part of the Connected Families Community, consider:

  • Sharing our resources within your sphere of influence. Most people say they’ve learned about Connected Families through a friend!
  • Are you already a donor? Please consider meeting or exceeding your previous annual or year-end donation.

Thank you for partnering with us to help parents lead their families with grace and truth. If you have any questions about our finances, our fundraising philosophy, or our vision for expansion, please ask.


Building Community

As these parents begin experiencing safety themselves at UGM, they are creating foundations of safety in their families. Their children’s hearts are healing, and in so many cases we are interrupting generational trauma.

In Nonprofits

I have asked for advice numerous times on the DTC alumni page. The advice and encouragement from other parents has never disappointed. Sometimes you just need to know that you’re not alone in your struggle.


On Social Media

We went from 1-3 kids in the office every day with behavior struggles, to almost none. When they do come into the office, we greet them with love and grace. Preschool can be a big scary world to a student!

In schools

When I think of my CF small group I can’t help but smile. The people in my group are a safe place for me to work out what’s going on in me. I have discovered that parenting in a community helps me to persevere on the hard days.

In Small Groups

When we’re together, it’s such a blessing to have a shared language of how relationships are worked out. Concepts like do-overs, gifts-gone-awry, and making it right are already in place, making life together flow so much more easily.

Through Extended Families

When our house parents use the principle of being safe, these young moms see such a contrast that they want to know more. When they see safety modeled for them they better understand how to be safe for their own kids.
