Often we think of orphans as children who live in third world countries, those whose images we see on television or in the newspaper. But they’re not just around the globe, they’re also right here in our own backyard. On any given day in South Florida, there are three to four thousand “temporary orphans” in foster care. Imagine how children must feel when they’re removed from their homes, often with nothing more than the clothes on their back and a garbage bag filled with whatever they were able to quickly pack. These children are created in the image of God and deserve to be treated with dignity and showered with love. So whether it’s a child who is a victim of abuse or neglect, a teenager rejected by his family, or a young girl who is pregnant and alone, from the moment they come into our care, we provide support, encouragement, and direction. Our Vision: A Home for Every Child in Crisis Core Values: Sacrifice::: Serving with the heart of God,whatever the cost. Perseverance::: Never giving up on a child. Integrity::: In everything, above reproach. Compassion::: Walking with children on their path to redemption. Excellence::: Giving our best to those in need.
