The orphan care crisis is solved one child at a time.  For one child to be helped, one person must be made  aware of a need.  Families Outreach seeks raise awareness of the need of hope around the globe.  We think it is of the utmost importance for the Church to take the lead in adoption and orphan care.

 

GARDEN OF HOPE

Farmer's MarketEvery Saturday May-October, northeast Arkansas residents can support local farmers at the ASU Regional Farmer’s Market.  Families Outreach will have a booth at the market selling garden produce, fresh baked cookies and  homemade crafts.

The booth will provide numerous opportunities to share with community about adoption and orphan care.  Also, proceeds from the Garden of Hope will support our Orphan Care Partnership Program.  Investing in Families Outreach, is investing around the world.  So come visit our booth each Saturday to see what’s fresh from the garden.

 

 VISIT AN ORPHAN CARE PARTNERSHIP

Seeing truly is believing when it comes to orphan care.  As pastor David Platt once said, “It’s easy to forget the orphan until you have seen his face and known his name.”  When we come face to face with one child rather than a numbing statistic of 163 million, we are moved to action.  Would you consider visiting one of our orphan care partnerships on an upcoming trip?  After you have seen firsthand, you will be a community advocate without even realizing it!  Check out our next mission opportunity:

ORPHAN CARE FUND

One way to involve your church now is to start an orphan care fund.  Lifesong for Orphans is an organization that already has the  program set-up to collect and administer adoption funds.  They make  it simple for a church to launch their very on adoption fund.  Visit their site to read more on how to start a fund at your church.  If you have any questions, contact us at info@familiesoutreach.org.
