5K For Orphans!

Globally an estimated 17.8 million children have lost both parents.  There are more than 400,000 children in the foster system in the U.S. today, with over 100,000 waiting to be adopted.  In NY alone there are almost 24,000 kids in care; compare that to the 14, 767 churches statewide and we can see that the church can out-source the need.  Sadly, most people are unaware that there is a global orphan crisis in 2015.

Justice For Orphans seeks to bring awareness to this tragedy and engage the Church.  JFO advocates for Christian families to adopt and/or foster as well as support global orphan initiatives such as Orphan Sunday.  Through conferences, speaking engagements, social media, and Christian radio JFO is actively proclaiming the biblical mandate in James 1:27 to care for orphans.

JFO is an all-volunteer run non-profit Christian organization and we need your support to defend the cause of the fatherless locally and globally.  Please join us on Saturday, October 24th, at Faith Plaza in Ravena, NY for our 2nd annual 5K For Orphans! Following the 5K, Abounding Love Christian Fellowship and Hopeful Life Center is hosting their annual Harvest Fest.  Free fall fun for the whole family!
