God has called me away from being a ‘convenient’ Christian into one who is in the trenches. Being a part of the launch of our Family Preservation ministry has forever changed me.
Family preservation ministries recognize that children need a safe and nurturing family environment and that separation of children from parents is often traumatic, with long-term negative impact. Family preservation can be any number of efforts focusing on strengthening families, poverty prevention and alleviation, short-term crisis intervention and foster care prevention. These efforts are rooted in the love of Christ and a holistic discipleship model that has the potential to transform the lives of parents, vulnerable children, and generations to come.

Various Ministries to Neighborhood Children and Youth
God placed Mosaic Midtown Church in the heart of Detroit in 2016. One of the greatest challenges facing the city is the plight of children and youth due to the breakdown of the family, poverty, the worst public education in America, broken systems, mental health and drug abuse issues, crime and instability. Mosaic Midtown serves the youth of Detroit through a variety of ministries and community partnerships rooted in discipleship and providing opportunities for a better future.

Safe Families for Children
Since 2005, Safe Families for Children (SFFC) has offered sanctuary to thousands of children through trained volunteer host families from local churches, minimizing the risk for abuse or neglect and giving parents the time and tools they need to help their families thrive. The ultimate goal is to strengthen and support parents so they can become Safe Families for their own children. Since 2013, The Ransom Church has been an active partner with their local SFFC.
