Our Mission

Our mission is to provide Christ-centered services to children and families in need.

Our Vision

Our vision is to bring hope to hurting children, to show that the love of Jesus changes lives and to impact the life of one more child.

From the opening of our first orphanage in 1904 to our present-day ministries that have expanded to provide safe, stable, Christian homes and services to children and families in need across the state and around the globe, we are honored to be helping children in tangible ways.

Last year, we had the privilege of serving more than 74,000 children through our campuses, foster care services, adoption services, Caring Families, emergency care, compassion ministries and more. Whether it’s providing clean diapers to a newborn baby, food for a hungry child, safety for an abused child, or foster or adoptive homes to children in crisis, we work to share with children who have been abused, neglected and abandoned the protective and healing love of Jesus.

As we reflect on the last 110 years with thankfulness and awe, we look forward to a future filled with hope for children in need! Will you join the cause and become a part of our mission to help one more child?
