ORPHAN CARE

 

“A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families…”

-Psalm 68:5-6

Love Life Orphan Care is a group of people committed to personally ending the

local orphan crisis in our city by placing every one of our children in a Godly home.

Did you know: 

almost 80% of inmates incarcerated in our prisons have spent time in foster care

Reasons Why Foster Care & Adoption is Needed:

  • In North Carolina, there are approximately 12,000+ children currently in the system, 2000+ of which are available for adoption immediately.

  • In NYC, there are approximately 20,000+ children currently in the system, 2000+ of which are available for adoption immediately.

  • 50% of children in the foster care system will dropout of high school.

  • Over 500 children are expected to “age-out” of the system in North Carolina each year.

  • Of the children who are never adopted: 1 in 5 become homeless, 71% under 21 become pregnant, 1 in 4 experience PTSD, many end up addicted to drugs or in jail.

Who are the Orphans in North Carolina?

  • 1100+ of the foster children are in group homes .

  • 4000+ of the foster children are 0-5 years old.

  • 40% are African American.

  • The average age of the children currently available for adoption is 13.

What the Process Looks Like

  1. Families decide which agency to use; we can help recommend the right fit.

  2. Complete Application and Background Check.

  3. Attend MAPP Class (Model Approach to Partnerships and Parenting)

  4. Complete Home Study / Safety Inspections / Receive license from state

  5. Begin accepting child placements in your home.


Expected timeline: 5-8 months to become licensed to foster or adopt.  

Orphan Care Hospitality

“Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.” Romans 12:13

 

We do not want families to walk this road without the support of their local church.  Orphan Care Hospitality is a network of support within the church for families stepping into foster care or adoption. We suggest appointing a person to serve as the Orphan Care Hospitality Advocate within the church to oversee the Orphan Care Hospitality Team.
