Launching and Leading an Orphan Care Ministry

There are many local organizations that your orphan care ministry can partner with to serve foster families and children in care. Visit our CARE page for links to each of them. 

There is almost a 1:1 ratio of churches and foster families in East TN.

We know that if we educate and empower God's people, they can completely change the way children experience adoption, foster, and kinship care. 

By wrapping community support around families, parents feel equipped to continue the important work and children stay in one healthy placement longer, receiving the relational healing they need.
