Orphan Care in Missions


"Learn to do good;
Seek justice,
Correct oppression;
Bring justice to the fatherless..." Isaiah 1:17

There are an estimated 150+ million orphans worldwide. The numbers are staggering and the need is overwhelming.

Over the last ten years God has been stirring the heart of Houston’s First Baptist Church to strategically partner with ministries who are caring for the fatherless by providing long-term holistic care. Adoption and foster care are unfortunately not possible for all of these children; however, through intentional interaction with our partners, Houston’s First is able to encourage, uplift and support thousands of children’s journey toward healing and hope in Christ.

What can you do to help?

PRAY intentionally for the Fatherless

Make it PERSONAL through an Advocacy Trip with Houstons First!

Make caring for the orphan & vulnerable child a PERMANENT part of the rhythm of your life.
