ORPHAN CARE RESOURCES

The Harvest Love One Orphan Care ministry wants to help you as you explore your role in orphan care. Below are some great resources for those wrapping around families in orphan care, those involved in foster care, those preparing to adopt and those who have adopted.

There are many ways to get involved—praying, giving, mobilizing your church or adopting. Whichever you decide, we’ll provide guidance and support as you walk down this incredibly rewarding path. Our hope is that you begin to see the face of Christ in these children.
