Foster Care Around the World

Connecting children with foster families, right where they live

In response to the worldwide orphan crisis, we connect children in need with foster families in their country of origin.

Families instead of orphanages

Family-based care offers a proven solution to protect vulnerable children around the world. Because of poverty, illness, war, or abandonment, many orphans and vulnerable children around the world do not live with their families of origin.

As a result, many children end up in orphanages. While orphanages may provide for a child’s basic needs, they are not intended to protect and care for children long-term.

Only a family best supports a child’s physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual needs.

That's why we partner with local churches, communities, and governments to identify, train, and support adoptive families to be the answer for children in need.
