World Orphans equips, inspires, and mobilizes the church to care for orphans and vulnerable children. Our vision is to empower the church to care for orphans, until they all have homes. Our Home Based Care Program (HBC) is a family-based program that both addresses and prevents the rise of the orphan population by caring for children in a home environment. Administered through our Church Partnership model, World Orphans partners US churches with international churches that each wholistically care for 20 orphaned and vulnerable children. These children are being raised by single mothers, extended family, neighbors, friends, or church members.
