There are many ways you and your church can care for orphans and vulnerable children, including through adoption, foster care, family preservation, and international orphan care. Through our Orphans and Vulnerable Children Initiative, Anglicans for Life wants to come alongside you as you explore what God would have you, and your church, do on behalf of hurting and lonely children and their families, in your community or perhaps beyond.
God designed children to be loved and nurtured within the context of a family. Sometimes, through no fault of their own, children are removed from their families of origin. This separation of a child from his or her family can be temporary or permanent. It can also be very traumatic for the child. Whether temporary or permanent, followers of Christ have the opportunity to stand in the gap for children by welcoming them into their homes, whether permanently through adoption, or temporarily through foster care.
