House Parents – Difference Makers

It should be obvious; however, it bears mentioning. Effective, loving house parents are critical in making the mission of ICC successful. ICC’s Director of Children’s Services, Sharon Fleck, recently saw this in action when she visited ICC’s project in Romania. For a variety of reasons, it has been a challenge to find and keep house parents at that particular project. When house parents have left in the past, social aunts have had to help fill the void.  Though the children receive good care from the aunts, a special bond takes place when the children have consistent care and  nurture from loving house parents.

We are very thankful that the homes at ICC Romania all have quality house parents now.  The children are happy, and it is evident that they truly enjoy spending time with their house parents. One little boy especially finds great joy in doing sweet things for his house mom.

To all house parents in the ICC family we offer our heartfelt appreciation for all you do to care for “His Kids.”

Thanks for reading!
