Faith Friends Children’s Outreach

About Us

Faith Friends is currently serving children (birth to 18-yrs) at the East County Transitional Living Center (ECTLC) located 1527 E Main St, El Cajon, CA 92021. We are working with the Family Restoration Ministry to support the Parent Co-Op, which provides child care while adults attend bible study, church services, recovery meetings and other classes. Typically sessions occur on weekdays for 1-2 hours in the morning, early afternoon and evening.

Our goal is to improve the environment where the children learn and play, to elevate the program from custodial (babysitting) to developmental (learning) standards, and to offer regular faith-based activities to bring the light of Jesus and the Word of God where it is dearly needed. We are looking primarily to enrich self-esteem, promote social skills and instill basic Christian values. These precious children are suffering from the past mistakes of their parents such as substance abuse, domestic violence and incarceration. Many have been rescued from homelessness and other traumatic circumstances. For anyone who loves children and loves the Lord, there is no better place to serve. 

We are constantly searching for faithful volunteers and generous donors. We currently offer a Toddler/Preschool Sunday School class from 10 a.m. to Noon weekly and a Bible Fun Club for mixed ages (Weds 5:30  - 7:45 pm). Since the pandemic began, our monthly Birthday Blessings parties for large groups have been held as smaller family gatherings or as a doorstep delivery service. One way or another, each child from birth to age 18 is blessed with a bag filled with surprises during their birth month. Although many of our neighbors come forward during the holidays, a birthday is a God-given and very special day for every child that should never be neglected. This is why "BB" is an important part of our mission.
