2013 has been a tremendous year for the Families Outreach grant program. We prayed that we would be able to help more couples this year in bringing home their children and this prayer has been answered many times over. We are anticipating at least a sixty percent increase of grants awarded over our 2012 total. We are overwhelmed by how great this growth is and how this program continues to grow.
Unfortunately we are approaching the limit of our grant budget for this year and will cease processing new grants for this year on September 6, 2013. Any grant applications received after this date will be held as pending until we receive new funding for our 2014 grant program and receive priority when we start processing applications again.
We have seen great increases each year in the number of families that we’ve been able to help bring home their children and are praying that we can continue to increase our reach in 2014. To paraphrase Dr. Russell Moore, not all of us are called to adopt, but all Christians are called to help care for the fatherless. If you would like to join us in this, consider donating toward our grant program and help us assist those who are.
