Safe Harbor Adoption & Orphan Care Ministry's purpose is to increase awareness of the Heavenly Father's passion for looking after orphans by loving them like Jesus.

Active compassion is necessary!

Love that is demonstrated through:

  • global orphan care
  • Adoptive/Fostering families
  • encouragement of those who bring orphans into their homes
  • teams who give hands-on involvement are vital to the journey of orphan care
  • mobilizing churches, institutions, and groups that contribute prayer, visitation, and finances

We are adopted by our Heavenly Father into His family- God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do and it gave him great pleasure (Ephesians 1:5, NLT).

His active compassion drives us to make a difference in the life of a child-an ETERNAL difference!

It only takes one to reach one!
