Supporting Mothers In Legacy and Education(S.M.I.L.E.) is a ministry of Aletheia Bible Fellowship that seeks to provide support for young families by enriching the family culture with tools for a lasting familial connection and a standard of learning from within the family . We believe that a primary key to this success is best accessed during the formative years of a child in the care of their Mothers. To this end, we work hard to provide resources that will, at a base level, meet the immediate needs of young families and that cater to the idea of empowering families toward education and legacy.
We always seek to meet immediate needs first. To this end, Storge, ABF’s childrens resale program serves as our direct clothing and items closet for young families in need. Through Storge and our voucher program, a family in need can receive things that will empower them to set their sights on the less tangible, but more difficult goals of education and legacy in the lives of their children. To this end, our program also offers rotating classes for the whole range of the family to empower its members in their growth as a unit. We also offer free spiritual counseling through ABF’s Pastors. Though this is not a medical counseling session by any means, a listening ear and honest advice is sometimes all people need to make productive choices. None of these things are forced upon a family who applies for the program. They are offered to give each family the best chance for a strong future together.
