What can I do?

Hello everyone, Caroline Klages, My Father’s Arrows Director of Outreach here.

We are looking for people who would like to serve at My Father’s Arrows on a short term mission.  Live on campus with us and help take care of God’s children.  Serving […]

What an on time gift!


What an on-time gift! Understanding that back to school shopping is especially stressful for foster parents, Child Guardians, Inc. donated $500 in school supplies and backpacks that will be kept for kids who come into foster care after school starts! All the foster parents have to do is come to the My Father’s Arrows Thrift Store to get their free  school supplies, clothing and shoes and their new kids will be set for school.  A HUGE thank you to Steve Allen, Mary Bush, Kaffey Hinds and the entire CGI Board for your wonderful generosity!
