to fight for the fatherless,

Reflecting the heart of God by advocating for, by whatever means, the world's most vulnerable


at home and abroad,

Recognizing that all children, whether in our neighborhood or not, matter


as Jesus

Without the hope of the Gospel, no social justice or compassion program can truly affect and sustain change

commanded.

It is not optional for those who name the Name of Christ

currently,

There are over 700 million fatherless children across the globe. Since we believe the Scriptures uphold the inherent worth and dignity of each human life (Galatians 3:26-28), and because God has a special place in His heart for the fatherless (Psalm 68:5-6a), we are compelled to fight for the fatherless in tangible expressions of Christian love (James 1:27).

We invite all people everywhere to join in this fight, but we especially invite men to embrace this call. For far too long, men have abdicated their responsibilities in the home. We have lived selfishly, passively, and apathetically. As such, we are asking men to renounce the past, repent of self interest, and receive the blessing of moving forward in obedience to God’s commands. We are asking men to be fathers first to their own children, and then to the fatherless.

We believe statistics don't lie.

  • 1 in 3 children around the world go to bed each night without a biological father in the home (Unicef)
  • 85% of youths in prison come from fatherless homes (Justice &
    Behavior)
  • Children from one-parent homes are 20 times more likely to exhibit behavioral disorders (Centers for Disease Control)
  • 71% of all high school dropouts have no father-figure in the home (National Principals Association Report)
  • A child enters the US foster care system once every two seconds (AFCARS Report, US Health & Human Services)
  • 63% of youth suicides occur in fatherless homes (US Department of Heath)
  • Over 20,000 age out of foster care in the US each year without a legal family (AFCARS Report, US Health & Human Services)

Because of this,

  • We believe children benefit in every measurable way by the presence of a loving, committed, and engaged father in the home.
  • We also believe each man has been called to “man up and go” and fulfill his God-ordained responsibility to protect and provide.
  • We believe this responsibility starts by believing in and living out authentic masculinity within the home.
  • We believe the responsibility doesn’t end in the home, but extends to those children who do not have loving, committed fathers in their own lives.
We seek to engage the current fatherless generation with practical, Gospel-centered tools that will position them to break the generational curse of fatherlessness. Whether it’s modeling the love of a father through short-term trips, or securing a Christian education and daily nutritious food through our Sponsorship Programs, we know God calls us to meet today’s needs (see Luke 10:25-37).
We equip men to lead through themed conferences and our men’s leadership program, a nearly year-long discipleship commitment which stresses authentic masculinity and provides group microloans for those who qualify.
We empower single mothers and widows with vocational training that allows them to financially provide for their children when absentee fathers abdicate their responsibilities. Most commonly this includes jewelry-making, sewing/tailoring, hairdressing, or similar trades.
