Sewing Hope Silent Auction – September 15-30, 2021

We’re #SewingHope with our virtual silent auction to benefit the victims of Sexual Abuse through Our Children Project.

Our Children Project was developed to give children of all ages a safe place to learn to deal with a trauma no one should have to endure. To see and hear others share their experience gives them strength, hope and security. They know they are not alone as trained therapists and other members are there to help and guide. Parent groups are also part of the program to help families who have nowhere to talk about their family trauma. Young Offenders and their parents have a separate program that emphasizes understanding their triggers, dealing with their own abuse and/or addictions to pornography as well as learning to break their cycle of abusive behavior.

“Our Children Sexual Abuse Program could not survive without the generosity of our donors. Thanks to them we have been able to provide services to countless children who have been victims of sexual abuse. This silent auction will enable us to keep helping.”

Lorraine, a mother of four – three boys and a girl – found herself and her family in an almost incomprehensible situation. To her horror, she learned that her father had been molesting his own granddaughter.

She had noticed her daughter behaving strangely. Finally, the girl told her mother that the grandfather had been abusing her for several months, including twice in that very same evening. Lorraine confronted her father immediately, but he denied the truth of the little girl’s story.


Ambassadors are short-term volunteers who open doors for our organization in the community, introducing new people at our bi-monthly Fostering Community Care event. These are one hour awareness events only (no solicitations are made) to expose people to the great work of LSS Community Care. To become an Ambassador here are your responsibilities:
  1. 1 – Attend at least one Fostering Community Care event during the calendar year
  2. 2 – Host or invite and bring 10-15 guests to one Fostering Community Care event within 3 months of your attending one yourself.
  3. 3 – Inform your invited guests of what the Fostering Community Care meeting will be about, and let them know that they will receive a follow up call from the organization
  4. 4 – Ambassadors will complete their commitment after bringing 10-15 persons within the 3 month time period. An Ambassador has the option to complete after one term, continue for another 3 month term or move into another role on the team.
