Caring for Orphans & Widows


  • PROVIDE FOR THEIR NEEDS

    Project HOPEFUL Awassa works to pair children in Ethiopia with a Family In the Gap (FIG) for $30 per month. This sponsorship provides the child with necessities such as food, clothing, clean water, medical care, and education.

    You can also provide income training and a business for a widow for $250 or a cow for a family for only $120.

    Email Charisa Knight to support children who still need a FIG or for any of these other ministry opportunities!

  • PRAY FOR THEM

    Pick a waiting child and pray for him or her and the future adoptive family. Pray for children in foster care in our area and the families that foster. Pray for ministries that support orphans.

  • SPEAK UP FOR THEM

    CASA volunteers are voices for abused and neglected children in court. CASA volunteers are trained and supervised to gather information that helps judges decide the best possible outcome for children in foster care. Visit CASA's website to learn more.

  • SUPPORT THOSE WHO SUPPORT THEM!

    Mow, babysit, or organize meals for foster parents. Pray with them and tell them you appreciate what they do. Encourage families that adopt by providing meals or showers when their child comes home.

    Support organizations who give grants to families adopting such as Show Hope (www.showhope.org ).
     
    Host an orphan for the summer or winter holidays. We have local people who have done this that we can also connect you to! Visit New Horizon's website for more information.

  • ADOPT OR FOSTER

    Give a child a home through international or domestic adoption or foster care. Charisa or Greg Knight would love to talk more with you about adoption.
