The Forever Families Project
We believe children should be families and kinship care, not orphanages.
The purpose of our project is to help orphans and vulnerable children be in forever families (while preventing more orphans due to poverty). That’s why we focus on family-based care.
As many as 80% of vulnerable children in orphanages globally have living parents (and relatives) unable to care for them due to lack of financial resources and social support.
Science shows the best place the child can grow and have the best care is in the family. Now, a global movement aims to reunite children with families and help keep vulnerable families together.
What is Family-based care?
The focus of Family-based care is providing the love, nurture, and security that allows a child to thrive through reunification with biological parents, kinship care, foster care, or adoption.
Also, a vital part of supporting family care is strengthening families to prevent unnecessary separation.
How we help
We volunteer and support organizations that do the following:
Reuniting children with their families, kin, and communities.
Helping vulnerable children remain with their birth families (if possible) or get a loving forever family through community-based care and local adoption.
Preventing more orphans by keeping families together who could do so if they had financial and social support.
