SUPPORT LSM’S USA PROGRAMS BY FINDING A FURRY FRIEND
Please consider supporting BrickHouse Pups, which gives one hundred percent of its profits – after providing excellent food and care for the puppies – to helping area foster and adoptive parents and children through LSM USA Programs Counseling and Resources. Thank you for supporting us in this vital work!
HISTORY OF LSM’S USA PROGRAMS
Starting as a local Bluffton, IN ministry, BrickHouse began serving vulnerable young men through a residential program in 2006. They expanded to two local properties – an in-town location used for offices and a school along with a residential home on a fully functioning 40-acre farm and store, adding to the long-term sustainability of the program. It also provided valuable life skills for the boys living there.
In August 2019, BrickHouse merged with Loving Shepherd Ministries to reimagine programs and expand their outreach to more hurting young men and women in the foster care system and beyond. It’s been very exciting to bring the same trauma recovery, discipleship and development resources that have been successful in Haiti and Ethiopia back to the U.S. to meet the needs of individuals here at home.
In more recent years, an Adoption Support Group and Respite Home were established to provide foster and adoptive parents living in Northeast Indiana with additional opportunities to find camaraderie, replenish energy, and receive spiritual support.
WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT U.S.A. PROGRAMS
BECOME A MENTOR
The best person to guide any of us on our path to obtaining a new quality of character or new set of skills is a mentor, someone who has walked the path ahead of us. Mentors are particularly crucial to the hard-to-place foster youth, such as those served by our USA Programs. Do you have a skill that you would like to teach our children, like leadership or public speaking? Contact us today!
ADVOCATE FOR US
We hope you’re as excited as we are about this new outreach of LSM. We ask that you cover this ministry expansion in prayer. Through significant restructuring of BrickHouse and their work, we pray that we could develop the LSM’s USA Programs into a God-honoring, fruitful ministry that helps vulnerable young people become healthy, thriving adults.
