US Orphan Care

Today, there are over 400,000 children in foster care in the US.* Roughly 9 out of 10 will go home or be quickly adopted. The rest will stay in government care because no one else is willing. The Ones that remain are orphans. God is sending them to His Church. The Global Orphan Project serves US churches who are willing to become family for the Ones. We act as a connector between the Church and the State to move children from State care to family care in local churches. We support our local church partners through the process.
