How the Church Unknowingly Makes Special Needs Families Feel Unwelcome

How the Church Unknowingly Makes Special Needs Families Feel Unwelcome

by Take Heart Special Moms | Episode 117

The statistics are staggering. 90% of families with special needs feel ignored, unwelcomed, or devalued in churches. This is a huge number, and it shows how much work needs to be done to make churches more inclusive. The overall feeling of special needs families is that they want to feel wanted, accepted, and seen. Carrie, Amy, and Sara discuss the experiences of special needs families and how churches can change. Through church education, accommodations, and empathy, families could feel welcomed and cared for.

What a few of our amazing listeners are saying… 

“I just wanted to let you know I am enjoying the podcast so incredibly much for so many reasons! I have really enjoyed learning more about special needs families and the struggles and victories in all of your lives. Not being a special needs parent I have found that I still find so much in every episode that I can relate to in the world of mothering, womanhood, and/or as a Christian. I appreciate how raw and honest all 3 of you are.”
- Jordan
