The Church has always been involved in orphan care. Many organizations focused on building orphanages during the past thirty years. However, with the economic downturn of 2009, many homes struggled to survive as ongoing support declined rapidly.
That’s the crisis that sparked the beginning of Serving Orphans Worldwide in 2010. We realized that while we may not be able to bring every orphan into our homes, we can work diligently to better the homes where so many orphaned children are found today.
