Why talk about Children and Homelessness for Season 3 of Miracles from the Hill Podcast?

Miracle Hill Ministries is South Carolina’s largest provider of homelessness services. When many people think about “homelessness,” they often think of the experience of an adult. However, many children also experience homelessness, either through the foster care system or because their guardians are not stably housed. A child who experiences any level of homelessness adds trauma to their life. How can someone recover from childhood trauma? What is the trajectory of these children without housing? How does Miracle Hill help children experience homelessness? What is foster care? And what does DSS say about the lack of foster homes? 

If you are interested in any of the above questions, this season is for you. 

On this introductory episode, Ryan is joined by Jacob, Miracle Hill’s Chief Development Officer to discuss why the topic of children experiencing homelessness is crucial for anyone who wants to understand the homelessness landscape more deeply.

Children experience homelessness. The picture isn’t glamorous, but the stories need to be told. 

Season 3 on Miracles from the Hill Podcast will cover general foster care awareness, feature guests from community partners, educate listeners on childhood trauma, share inside information about children in emergency shelters, and many more topics.

Also, stay tuned for a 3-part miniseries that will drop in the middle of this season. “Grace: A Complicated Journey” will tell one story from three different perspectives – a foster mom, a birth mom, and an adoptive mom – all connected to the same two children. 

In short, we believe Season 3 is important because Jesus cared about children. 

If you want to grow in your understanding of what children experiencing homelessness often go through, then follow along as we journey together. 

“And whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.”

Matthew 10:42 ESV
