There are a great number of children locally and globally, who are without homes and families. There are approximately 28 million orphans without parents world wide, over 450,000 kids in the United States Foster Care system, and the Arizona Department of Child Safety is currently serving just over 20,000 in Arizona alone.
You can be part of solving this global and local crisis. You can join the many others at Journey who have become foster parents, adoptive parents, part of a support team for those who have opened their home, or a supporter of what God is doing around the world to change the way orphans receive care.
If you have any questions about how to get involved or just need some clarity, please reach out to us!

Foster care is needed when parents are unable, unwilling or unfit to care for a child and the child must find a new home. More than that, it is an opportunity for people to show the love and security God wants every child to experience and show our religion is more than talk. James 1:27
Adoption is a beautiful way to build a family. There are hundreds of thousands of children who are without a loving family right now in our country. Your family could be the perfect family to show God’s love and concern for a child in need.
There are millions of children in the world living as orphans. It crosses international borders, racial divides, and economic classes. With Christians outnumbering orphans worldwide by 15:1, God’s people can do something about this orphan crisis.
Wrap Around Team
We understand that while not everyone is going to foster or adopt, we're all certainly capable of doing something to support those who are and show.
Global Orphan Care
Many people believe the orphan crisis is being adequately addressed, but the facts tell a different story. There is growing research on the damaging effects of traditional, institutional orphan care. When children do not receive adequate personal interaction within a loving environment, development is stunted and learning abilities are delayed or lost.
