GIVING TUESDAY

Justice For Orphans is an all volunteer-run  nonprofit ministry working to inspire, educate and equip the Body of Christ toward adoption, foster care, and wrap-around ministry.  A huge part of what we do is our weekly radio program, Orphans No More, which airs on local Christian radio.  We are nearing our 200th episode!  All of our past shows can be heard right from this website.  Our team also hosts conferences, speaks at events, works with the local foster care community, leads Orphan Sunday and trains foster and adoptive families in parenting kids from hard places.  We have seen a tremendous amount of fruit this year as children will be spending their very first Christmas in their forever family!  And we also hear from so many families who are encouraged to continue the hard work of foster care and adoption because of JFO.  In order to continue this movement into 2017 we need your support.  Would you please consider a gift of any amount to help us help vulnerable children and families?  Thank you for your generosity.  We at JFO wish you and your family a very blessed Christmas and New Year!

ORPHAN SUNDAY – November 13, 2016

Defend the cause of the fatherless. – Isaiah 1:17

On Orphan Sunday, November 13th, 1000s of Christians of every denomination in every state across the U.S. and believers in 84+ countries globally will be standing on this One Day with One Voice for One Purpose – to defend orphans, foster kids, and vulnerable children everywhere.

Orphan Sunday (an initiative of Christian Alliance For Orphans) is a way for every follower of Christ to walk out God’s mandate in James 1:27 to care for orphans in their distress.  All around the world, orphans are hungry, homeless, voiceless, without hope, and without love.  And it’s not just a need that exists only in far away places and over-seas orphanages – it’s a need right here in every community across America.  Nearly 400,000 U.S. kids are in foster care with over 100,000 of them available for adoption.

The problem is huge but it can be solved.  We at Justice For Orphans are on a mission to rally the Church for the cause of these vulnerable children.  We inspire, activate, educate and equip the Body of Christ to meed this need through adoption, foster care, wrap-around support, and global orphan initiatives such as Orphan Sunday.

Join us on Orphan Sunday as we celebrate adoption, foster care, and ministries that reveal God’s heart for the least of these.  Our JFO team will be participating in Orphan Sunday events at Abounding Love Christian Fellowship in Ravena, NY and Rock Solid Church in Hudson, NY.  If your church is not observing Orphan Sunday this year you are welcome to join us at one of these local events and lift up vulnerable children in prayer on 11/13.   Be sure to get Orphan Sunday (2nd Sunday in Nov. annually) on your church calendar for next year – 11/12/17!

A father to the fatherless…is God in his holy dwelling.  God sets the lonely in families…”  Psalm 68:5-6
