Be a voice
One of the most powerful ways for you to care for orphaned and vulnerable children is to become a voice for what’s in their best interest. Every week, we share stories about what is happening in the lives of the kids and communities we serve—and our #ServeOrphansWell series provides honest insight on everything from short-term mission trips to the impact of residential programs and what care is still needed when orphans become adults.
Say, "I Stand for Orphans."
You can stand for orphans by being a James 127 Advocate.
Your support provides hope where it's needed most.
Orphan Outreach is also a founding member of the Christian Alliance for Orphans. CAFO unites individuals, churches, and ministries who share a common commitment to serving orphaned and vulnerable children—with a goal of inspiring and equipping Christians for effective orphan care, family preservation, foster care and adoption. You can be part of this global movement by joining CAFO and attending Summit, the annual global gathering of kindred hearts ready to learn, serve, and worship together.
Orphan Sunday is a global call to action for Christians worldwide. Churches, small groups, and community ministries lift up the cause of the orphan with locally-led sermons, bible studies, testimonials, concerts, shared meals, and youth events. Resources are provided to help you plan and promote Orphan Sunday in your community.
Register here and then let us know how we can support you with advocacy! Our team travels across the U.S. sharing about God’s heart for the orphan and equipping churches with ways to offer tangible hope through sponsorship, partnership, mission trips, and being a James 127 Advocate!
Care that prioritizes the unique needs of the children we serve based on their difficult backgrounds is a focus of Orphan Outreach. Our team, as well as a growing number of ministry partners, are trained in trust-based relational intervention (TBRI). This trauma-informed care for children helps them develop healthy attachments and overcome fear-based behaviors. Learn more about TBRI at the Karen Purvis Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University.
