Adoption Family

Adoption Aid Grants

As a ministry, we are surrounded by families that have responded to God’s call and heart for adoption. Although, our primary focus is caring for orphans in places where the need is pandemic, our ultimate goal is to bring orphans into families.

For us, some of those families have 40 children, but when it can be more intimate, we want to do everything we can to support and encourage that pursuit. In light of that commitment, and in response to the strong burden and oversight commitment from one of our supporters, the HOB Board of Directors unanimously voted to expand our mission to include adoption aid by providing assistance grants to adoptive families as God provides. HOB is not becoming an adoption agency, but we do have resources and staff members that can provide valuable help in getting families started. In keeping with our overall mission, we will only be helping families who have already made sacrificial commitments: we will be sharing the burden, not taking it. Ultimately God will be the provider to those who are called to adopt. As a ministry that shares His heart for orphans, it is simply our desire and joy to be a part of that work.

HOB’s Adoption Aid Ministry will help provide assistance grants to qualified adoptive families as God provides.
