Families Outreach began a partnership with Alex’s House in the spring of 2012. Our director served in Haiti in 2010 and heard about the orphanage caring for street children in Port Au Prince. In August of 2012, our first mission team served on a construction project to build the new orphanage in Kaliko.
Alex’s House is a family of 30 children and several house parents and directors. The home provides children with food, shelter, and education, but most importantly the opportunity to grow into a loving relationship with Jesus Christ. Alex’s House is not just about clothing and feeding children; it is about creating disciples.
With the construction of the new site completed(the children moved into their new home in September 2012!), Alex’s House is now focusing on strategic partnerships with 7 local churches around Kaliko. Teams will serve through children’s, youth and adult Bible camps. Serving on a mission team to Alex’s House with Families Outreach will provide great opportunities to love on the children living on site and the Haitian people in surrounding communities!
Phumela Children’s Village
Durban, South Africa
In the summer of 2012, Families Outreach linked up with World Orphans to become a Church-to-Church partner. Christian Life Centre is the first church we were partnered with. This is a vibrant church in the Chatsworth area of Durban, South Africa. They have several outreach ministries in their community.
Phumela Children’s Village is one of the main ministries of Christian Life Centre. The village has six homes set-up to care for 36 children. Phumela is designed to function in family units with up to six children being cared for in a home with a house mother. Twenty-one children currently live at CLC.
We have taken several teams to work with the children of CLC and the surrounding community. In addition to the children living on site, 200 community children are feed and served through out the week at CLC. The church also runs a bakery which serves as an outreach ministry to provide bread to the needy.
New partnerships are pending in Addis Abba, Ethiopia and Beijing, China. Details coming soon.
