WE ARE MOBILIZING COMMUNITIES TO PROTECT KIDS FROM ABUSE & NEGLECT

Thru awareness and mobilization, we engage individuals and groups in purposeful actions to protect kids. We can make a difference amid the sobering circumstances of victimized children. Now heart-wrenching news stories of an innocent child's death or harm will be met with a community that says, I KNOW WHAT I CAN DO! Because what we do is educate and enable people like you to make a community-based response that brings impactful solutions. We provide eighteen different ways to engage, which are separated into the following three categories:

THE MISSION

ANYONE CAN BE A COMMNUNITY PILLAR TO

protect kids

Community mobilization has been at the heart of 10.18 Strategy from the very beginning. Starting from an actual dream, our Founder and President, Katie Fetzer, had in 2010.

 

A CITY UPHELD BY THE PEOPLE

In this dream, she saw the "foundation" of the Kansas City metro area sitting on the top of a pyramid. The city began to tip aggressively to one side. As she saw this, she screamed out in prayer, "No, Lord! Don't let the city fall!" Then she heard a voice respond, "I will send my servants to be the pillars of the city!" Immediately she saw the entire foundation of the city surrounded by its people, its citizens. Each person put the foundation of the city on their left shoulder, and then with their right hand, they put a megaphone to their mouth. They began to declare with a loud voice, "The Lord is good, and His mercy endures forever! The Lord is good, and His mercy endures forever! The Lord is good, and His mercy endures forever!" (Psalms 107:1)

Then she heard the voice say, "Look and see WHO my pillars are!" As she looked around the city, the people who were the pillars were not people of position, power, or politics. The people chosen to be the pillars of the city were everyday people, living ordinary lives. It was the people of the city! 

This dream is the foundation of 10.18 Strategy's mission to help mobilize communities of believers that declares His goodness to the broken, the hurting, and the vulnerable. 

WHEN WE EACH DO OUR PART,

Share the Cause

Together we can bring awareness to the national crisis of child abuse and neglect by promoting and sharing 10.18's #ProtectKids videos, posts, & campaigns. The intent is to inform our micro-communities and spheres of influence of these injustices. Then provide simple ways for the community to engage in service and support of these children thru a community-based response. Because together, we can make a lasting difference in the lives of our nation's most vulnerable children.

Serve the Community

Stepping up to serve in practical ways impacts the lives of children right now! You may feel moved to help the children directly thru fostering or advocacy. Or you might feel led to serve those who are on the frontlines. You might also feel drawn to support the 10.18 Strategy mission in a big picture way. No matter which one you feel led to do, children's lives will be impacted by you doing your part. 10.18 Strategy is here to help you every step of the way.

Support the Mission

A loving family can change everything for a victimized child! Your generosity & support make it possible for families to open their homes to these vulnerable children and give out of the depth of their faith & love. Your support allows for 10.18 Strategy to train and aid these families in the reality-based skills required to serve children thru fostering and advocacy. Your generosity makes safe homes possible! 

678,000 REASONS TO HELP

678,000 children are verified as VICTIMS of abuse & neglect each year by Child Protective Services.  Over 78% of these children STAY in their abusive situations, primarily due to a lack of foster families.

To us, that's simply unacceptable. 

Many of our biggest SOCIETAL PROBLEMS stem from the familial cycle of child maltreatment. This IMPACT on our COMMUNITIES is substantial.

Together, we can protect kids through awareness, action, and advocacy.

The orphans and the oppressed will be terrified no longer, for You will bring them justice, and no one will trouble them. Psalms 10.18
