The Orphan Care Initiative

Purpose Statement

To make the Gospel visible by empowering people to care for the orphan by ending the orphan crisis.

The Orphan Care Initiative at Saddleback Church believes every child deserves a loving, lasting, legal, lifelong family of their own—and the church can help. By providing vision, tools, and training, we equip local churches to help children to remain in families, re-unite with families or regain a family through kinship care or adoption. We are committed to creating practical ways that every believer can make a difference for vulnerable children locally and globally, because the Bible says that we are all called to care for the orphan the way God has cared for us.
