Thank you for your support!
5th Annual "Little Patch of Heaven Radio Show"

Little Patch of Heaven Radio Show

This year’s show was another success!  Over 1,100 people attended and over $100,000 was raised to support day-to-day needs for SFS homes.  We have reached our goal to raise 150% of annual operating funds for the current home for men AND the two new homes that are being built in 2014. Thank you for all you’ve done to help us meet our needs.  A big thank you to Todd Busteed and  the Musical Moms -  Marcia Macy, Robin Wiper and Joleen Billingham.   We want to thank all the performers and College Church in Wheaton for the use of the facility and staff to support this show.  Construction has begun on our first home for women.  For more information email us or call us at 630-206-0243.

Funds raised at the annual "Little Patch of Heaven" Fundraiser and other SFS events help cover annual operating costs of SFS homes. Please watch our short video about this project and consider making a contribution.

Washington House said good-bye to our dear friend and Life Skills Tutor Christine as she headed to graduate school this fall. We will always remember what wonderful relationships she nurtured and the how she fostered confidence and independence thru the life-skills she taught. We are thrilled that God has provided again and blessed us with Janice! She is a wonderful new friend and our current afternoon Life Skills Tutor. Janice had big shoes to fill, and has approached her new role with humor...

We are excited about the Stars Family Services Partner Program! We believe God gives each of us tasks to do and this is a good gift from Him. It has been our dream to have people with intellectual and developmental disabilities from our STARS ministry at College Church join us as Partners in our shops. One of the goals of the STARS Partner Program is to train our STARS to be valuable members of the Resale Shop team, to become true Partners in the ministry of our College Church Resale Shops...
