Attend. Donate. Advocate.

Help us share Christ-centered hope with children who have been abused, abandoned, orphaned, or neglected and support foster and adoptive families through awareness, training, outreach, and partnerships.


We help families by:

  • Establishing strong community partnerships with lead child welfare and adoption agencies
  • Filling gaps for local families where support services are not available.
  • Offering ongoing local initiatives including respite care, meal delivery, home improvements, and counseling/support groups.
  • Hosting Awareness and training events, that help to generate more safe homes for vulnerable children in our community.
  • Reaching out globally. Our Ayinza program partners with the villagers of Mpongo, Uganda to enable the community to care for its own children who are at the highest risk of neglect.
