Who We Are

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”. – Edmund Burke

Who We Are

We are a group of committed believers that see the crisis with children and have found a sustainable solution to engage churches in their mission to care for orphans and widows.

God has a heart for all people, but a special place for those who are destitute, and so should we.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:  to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”-  James 1:27

Our Mission

To assist families in their call to foster and adopt utilizing the local church to strategically care for each family physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Our Purpose

Empower and engage churches to raise up and support foster and adoptive parents who are committed to changing the lives of vulnerable children.

Our Vision

To see every Church engage and support at least one foster or adoptive family.
