Whether directly providing care in our own communities or partnering with groups overseas, Christians around the world are rising to the biblical call to respond to the needs of the orphaned and vulnerable. Globally, the need is great and there is no “one right answer” for every situation. There is, however, a growing body of research and evidence-based “lessons learned” to help guide this faith-inspired work.

Produced by the Faith to Action Initiative with support from the Better Care Network, this three-part series summarizes key research and global findings for faith-based donors and practitioners seeking to root their actions in evidence based-practice. The series provides a strong framework for understanding the importance of family care, the limitations of institutional care, and the range of options for children who have been separated from parental care.
