The Turning Point in the Orphan Crisis

8 million kids are languishing in orphanages and 
100 million are forgotten on the streets.
80% have been falsely labeled ‘orphan’ and need our help getting home.

Good Intentions / Bad Outcomes

Initially we meant well. Orphanages were built to help children who had lost parents or suffered from extreme poverty. As more orphanages were built and funds flooded in, we created a demand for separation of children from their parents.

Most kids have loving families

An estimated 80% of children living in residential care have a biological family. They need our help getting home and staying home. Government and NGO Leaders in various countries are trail blazing a new way of care that returns and keeps kids in families.

a shift to family reunification

Our approach is simple. We assist orphanage leaders with resources needed to shift their model of care from one of long term residential care to transitional care and case management support in the home.

What we do

Together, we are transforming thousands of orphanages into responsible reunification centers — to get kids safely and permanently home.

Shift the Mindset

Permanent, loving family for every child — reunited whenever possible, adopted whenever necessary.

Shift the Model

Get children home, not housed. Revitalized operations rehabilitate children from trauma, and recruit and equip safe, loving parents to restore them with.

Shift the Money

Funding boards, churches, and individuals continue sponsorships, but direct them away from long-term care and into rehabilitation and reunification.

Shift the Method

Radical collaboration, and sharing of data, best practices and tools, will maximize the number of kids getting home, and minimize time to do it.
