Mission

Justice For Orphans has 3 main focuses:

  1. To rally the Church for the cause of the fatherless based on James 1:27.
  2. We educate Christian families to adopt and/or do foster care, and we encourage global orphan care.
  3. We wrap around families who are doing just that by providing encouragement, training, and help before, during, and after the children are home.
