Love opens its doors.
Love preserves families.
Love shares the good news.
Extreme poverty, death, abuse, or cultural traditions sometimes leave a child without the care of a family. When these hardships happen, Homes of Love steps in.
In Family Homes, in-country Christian parents receive support to provide for non-biological children's food, clothing, and hygiene needs. Family homes re-establish a sense of safety and security for hurting children.
Family Home parents come from all different backgrounds, but they are all drawn to the cause of Christ in their communities. While some have their own biological children, others are single or adoptive parents looking to safely raise and support children in need. Homes of Love partners with the local church to identify and train these parents.
Homes of Love also provides for medical and dental care, school fees, and tutoring. Our partners in each country regularly visit homes to provide spiritual support, parental training, and encouragement.
Many parents have served faithfully for several years. One Vietnamese mother has raised 12 healthy girls over 11 years!
Because of Zimbabwe’s economic struggles, we also help parents with training and resources to start businesses that provide a steady source of food and income.
When a child loses a parent and there is a remaining parent or another relative who is safe and willing to care for the child, Homes of Love offers support to help the biological family stay together.
Our in-country partners develop relationships across neighborhoods and villages. As they visit, they discover families who have a need for HOL's partnership. We also take referrals from other nonprofits that work alongside us in-country.
Homes of Love families receive significant hands-on support in the form of weekly tutoring, Bible study, and parent training led by our partners. Our prayer is for the faith of both the caregivers and the children to grow.
When possible, we provide support to help families stay together.
Nearly 20% (1.2 million) of all Zimbabwean children have lost at least one parent.
