If just 7% of today’s Christians cared for a single orphan, there would be no more orphans.
There are 143 million orphans in the world. That statistic first jumped off the page of a magazine and pierced our hearts in 2008. How could there be such a devastating crisis afflicting the children God specifically calls His people to defend? If just 7% of today’s Christians cared for a single orphan, there would be no more orphans.
God charged us with finding those Christians, families to care for vulnerable children who have suffered abuse and neglect. And with one of the nation’s highest rates of children in foster care per capita, we knew we had to begin right here in Montana. So, with a singular focus of finding a family for every child, we launched the mission of Child Bridge.
We began recruiting families to carry this mission forward. But the real, hard work of caring for these hurting children illuminated another need — the need to train, support and connect the families fighting on the front lines.
Today, Child Bridge stands in the gap by recruiting and equipping those who follow God’s call to love His precious kids — whether a child’s need is a few days, a few months or forever. We envision a day when no child is left waiting for a family but rather an army of families stands ready to care for them.
We do what we do because we believe every child is a masterpiece worthy of being seen.
Join us. They are worth it.
