many children have special needs or are considered “unadoptable”

we create families for children who have lost their own.


Our Forever family program is uniquely designed to give children the love and support they need.



Healthy family structure

We unite 8-10 children with a Selamta-trained mother in their own home, integrated into their local community.

Children grow up together

Children grow up as a family over a 10-20 year period before launching from Selamta’s care into independence.


Spiritual, mental & physical growth

Our professional staff serve each family with an emphasis on education, health & wellness, psychosocial support, and spiritual & life skills development.

Restoring family, dignity, and hope

Growing up in a stable family, surrounded by the love of Christ gives children a strong sense of belonging and hope.



You can provide family, dignity, and hope for a child in need.

Here’s how it works:

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father, means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.”
— James 1:27
