Defending the Cause of the Fatherless

Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of the orphans. Fight for the rights of widows. (Isaiah 1:17, NLT)
God cares for the vulnerable, not the least of which are orphans and the fatherless. God’s word compels us to step forward, lock arms, and defend the fatherless in our community and world.

THE STORIES ARE HEARTBREAKING.
Globally and right here in Indianapolis, a distressing number of children are abused, abandoned, or neglected.

THE NUMBERS ARE STAGGERING.
Foster care faces a nationwide crisis, and Indiana ranks fifth for the number of kids in the system at 16,000.

THE NEEDS ARE SUBSTANTIAL.
The demand for stable, loving homes far outpaces the supply. Limited resources and manpower leave basic needs unmet.

Together, we can make a difference. The church can have a massive, sustainable impact on the foster and adoption crisis. Would you prayerfully consider joining with us to care for vulnerable children? Whether it’s opening your own home to a child or supporting other families who have, we're here to help you get started.
