The number of children affected by the global orphan crisis is staggering. Around the world as many as 200 million orphans are growing up on the streets, in orphanages, in refugee camps without a family.
We believe that if our children have access to basic needs, a good education, a loving family and opportunity to grow into their God given potential, then every child in the world SHOULD have those things available to them. We believe something should and could be done about the global orphan crisis and we choose to be part of the solution.
There are many ways to be a part of the solution to the global orphan crisis. For our community, we are caring for Orphans & Vulnerable Children through Adoption, Foster Care, Safe Families, Child Sponsorship, and Abolition of Child Trafficking.
Through this multi-faceted, holistic approach to the global orphan crisis, we believe we will see the orphans of today become the leaders of tomorrow and communities around the world transformed.
Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation. God settles the solitary in a home; he leads out the prisoners to prosperity, but the rebellious dwell in a parched land. (Psalm 68:5-6 ESV)
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. (James 1:27 ESV)
Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause. (Isaiah 1:17 ESV)
