orphan care

The Bible calls upon us as the Church to care for those that are most vulnerable among us, including orphans, widows, single mothers, and many others.  That is a calling that we take to heart at Living Hope Church.  We have a diverse and robust Orphan Care ministry that takes shape in our hosting and support of three primary ministries: Hope4EveryChild, Safe Families for Children, and the New Path Pregnancy Resource Centers.  

We also celebrate and observe Orphan Sunday and National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.
"Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress."  [James 1:27]
At Living Hope Church, we strive to offer hope for every child by assisting families who foster and/or adopt, and to circle around those who have committed to these difficult and vital tasks. We want to walk the road with you- to encourage, pray, and help in any way possible. We want to be a part of defending the cause of the orphan and the widow in all community atmospheres, and to care for the least of these.

Hope4EveryChild meets monthly on Monday evenings at 6:30p at the Living Hope Church campus. For information about these meetings or how Hope4EveryChild can partner with your family, please contact Mandy Litzke at mdlitzke@earthlink.net.

Founded in 2003, Safe Families for Children surrounds families in crisis with caring, compassionate community. Safe Families is a volunteer-driven nonprofit that provides hope and support to families in our local communities. Located in 70 cities across the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and beyond, Safe Families is motivated by faith to keep children safe and families intact.
In many situations, parents or guardians may be incapable of providing a safe and caring environment for their children, putting them at risk of abuse and neglect. In the past, extended family or neighbors stepped in to help families in crisis by caring for their children for short periods of time.
Today, however, many families are socially isolated, and their extended family is nonexistent, or unavailable or unable to help.
Adding to the problem is the fact that most state child welfare agencies are required under law to rescue only those children who suffer blatant abuse or neglect, leaving thousands of children at risk.


Safe Families for Children creates extended family–like supports for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by faith to keep children safe and keep families intact.

Our Objectives

The three objectives of Safe Families for Children are:

  1. Keep children safe during a family crisis such as homelessness, hospitalization, or domestic violence in an effort to prevent child abuse and/or neglect.
  2. Support, and stabilize families in crisis by surrounding them with caring, compassionate community.
  3. Reunite families and reduce the number of children entering the child welfare system.
