You're Not Alone

The National Network of Parents of Missionaries, led by Cheryl Savageau and Diane Stortz, ministered to parents of missionaries (POMs) for nearly ten years, beginning in 2003. Although the ministry is no longer active, this new site offers links to currently available resources for POMs.

We're glad you found this site, and we want you to know you're not alone--many other POMs understand what you are going through and want to connect with you!
