Impact

We are constantly studying and learning about the increasing needs of orphans and foster children. Simultaneously, we also observe God moving and see the impact. If you have invested in our work in the past, we hope you will be encouraged to invest again. As you’ll see, thanks in part to generous supporters, we are building momentum in caring for vulnerable children.

 

The world’s 150 million orphans, joined together, define a nation with the world’s 10th largest population. The 400,000 foster children in the United States are immensely underserved and have outcomes much like their international counterparts: high rates of incarceration, mental health challenges, teenage pregnancy, and an exponentially increased probability of being trafficked.

 

Promise686 remains passionate about impacting these statistics by prayerfully investing resources in churches and families responding to God’s call to care for orphans through adopting and fostering.
