If you are currently supporting an orphanage, please don’t stop. Truly! But also, don’t stop there! When donors withdraw funding suddenly or rapidly, children suffer. Consider ways to leverage your support without threatening to remove it. The home you support needs to know that you are not expecting their model to transform overnight. Finding safe family members or alternative families for children may take some time, but we can start taking steps now.



If your church supports an orphanage, ask for a meeting with your church’s mission pastor or director. Show them this series and ask if together you might be able to come up with ways to support those same kids…in families!

Connect or gather with others who are also passionate about vulnerable children, share this series, and work together to spread the word and raise money for family care models. 

Use these videos to begin conversations with the leadership or board of directors of the orphanage you support.
