World Without Orphans: Roles for Churches

 
Share
The purpose of this document is to stimulate discussion among churches, their members, and their communities about their various potential roles in supporting the World Without Orphans (WWO) initiative. 
 
The goal of World Without Orphans is to ensure that all children are given the opportunity to grow and thrive in safe, healthy, nurturing, permanent “forever” families. The primary target group of the WWO initiative includes children who have been abused, neglected, or sexually abused by their families, who have developmental disabilities, who have been abandoned, who have run away from home or are homeless, who have been exploited, or who are emancipating to independence from foster or orphanage care. The WWO movement believes that churches throughout the world and the communities they serve can provide many valuable services to these children and their families, thereby promoting safety, permanence, and well being for this very vulnerable population of children.
