Join the Movement

Here’s a glimpse of what we’ve accomplished:

  • Built an orphanage in Uganda and Tanzania
  • Funded Foster Care Support counselor positions so more children can be placed in loving foster homes
  • Given scholarships to families so they could adopt children into their “forever families.” This resulted in more permanent, loving families for children
  • Built 25 homes in Guatemala for children and families in desperate need
  • Provided critical assistance to children “aging out” of the foster care program
  • Funded the Life Program for all children in care at One More Child, allowing them to learn critical life skills
  • Helped survivors of sex trafficking

See the impact of our compassion and commitment.
