OrphanCare

Redeemer Orphan Care exists to mobilize the church to care for vulnerable children by supporting existing foster/adoptive families, equipping new foster/adoptive families, and helping each member of the church find a way to obey God's command. We believe that every believer is called by God to care for the most vulnerable in their community: ("Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained from the world." James 1:27).

We hold a quarterly Parents' Night Out (PNO) program for foster and adoptive families, where each child is paired with an adult "Buddy" who has been trained to serve children from hard places. Activities may include a puppet show, art, outdoor play, therapy dogs, and more. We hope this helps foster/adoptive families rest, reconnect, and recharge for their challenging responsibilities. Sign up HERE for our next Parents' Night Out event. 

Additionally, we acknowledge Orphan Sunday, the second Sunday in November, to remind the church of our responsibility as Christ's hands and feet to our broken world. We collaborate with Fostering Family to work with area churches, organizations, and agencies to strategically solve the foster care crisis in Harris County. 

Our monthly meetings are for foster and adoptive families to share prayer needs, and for us to pray for those needs. Anyone is free to join the meetings, not just foster and adoptive families! We currently meet the last Wednesday of the month from 6:30-8:45 PM. Childcare is provided.
