Grace 14:18

I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” – John 14:18

Our mission is to encourage, support and equip families that God has brought together through adoption or foster care; to preserve at-risk families by partnering with local and global organizations; and to galvanize the whole church to biblically respond to the plight of the orphan and vulnerable children.
