The mission of Orphan Outreach is to glorify Jesus Christ by having a significant, long-term impact on orphaned and vulnerable children, equipping each child for a fulfilling, independent Christian life in their community.

What we do: PROVIDE HOLISTIC CARE We focus on the four essentials every child needs to thrive. Educational, Physical, Emotional, Spiritual PROMOTE FAMILY We ensure every child is provided a safe and loving home environment PREPARE FOR INDEPENDENCE We help equip orphaned and vulnerable children to reach their fullest potential in life. PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF CHILDREN We champion the rights of children by developing best practices and advocating for quality care.

Our team has more than two decades experience connecting people with opportunities to serve and care for orphaned children around the world. At Orphan Outreach we're experts at identifying ways people can care and invest in the lives of the children we serve by recognizing needs and proposed solutions that invite engagement from individuals and groups, such as churches. The Orphan Outreach staff is known around the world for being a leading voice for creating best practices along the full spectrum of care for children - from family preservation to foster care and adoption and wraparound care for orphan graduates. Advocating for the vulnerable has been our focus for 13 years, and we work with government and organizations around the world to develop systems of care that serve the best interest of each and every child.

Our organization uses the four essentials of care we believe necessary for a child to thrive, as indicators of success. For educational care we examine school attendance records; test scores; grade level advancement, and graduation rates. Positive indicators related to physical care include tracking the overall health of the children - Vaccine, weight, height, nutritional (balanced diet) Emotional relationship with their family is healthy and engaging (attachments), healthy peer groups, self-esteem is intact, healthy connection with adults, behavior is appropriate for their age. Spiritual growth is measured by a child's personal relationship with God and engagement in a local church. We examine this by more frequent Christian discipleship; adding Church partners to aid in ministering to the children through prayer, music worship and VBS.

Orphan Outreach's Key Accomplishments In 2019 include: 7,000 children and families internationally with programs, humanitarian aid, and mission trips 3,000 children in the U.S. with new backpacks and school supplies 1,600 children internationally with a quality education And Provided: 479,840 nutritious meals 1,206 children sponsored 57 mission trips for 745 trip participants 29 adoption grants through Joseph's DreamCoat 2020 Goals: In 2020, our goal is to increase the number of children served by 5%, and increase the wrap-around services offered to the children in all of our programs, and see our ministries grow by 5%.
