Project Home Children's Foundation was started in 2010 out of a deep desire to help vulnerable children through various activities and means of support. Motivated by the love and mercy we've received from Jesus Christ, we are dedicated to supporting orphanages, education, and other programs for underprivileged children around the world--particularly those who are orphaned or have special needs.
We provide adoption grants to Christian families who are welcoming children into their hearts and homes. We also work domestically and internationally to support existing organizations who share our vision by providing them with supplies, training and other means of assistance.
Many of our board members have traveled around the United States or all the way to China or Uganda to serve the underprivileged and those with special needs. These eye-opening and life-changing experiences have only furthered our commitment to serve God's people in any way He calls us.
"We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth."
-1 John 3:16-18
