Spiritual care is one aspect of the services provided through the child development centres of local churches. Each aspect of the program works together to create a holistic picture of hope for children. Poverty is not just a lack of physical, tangible benefits, it is also a mindset that communicates to a child that she or he has little self-worth. In that sense, it is impossible to separate Jesus from the care that our local church partners give.
Our faith is the reason why we do what we do; it is our motivation. Jesus calls us to care for “the least of these”—that is why we’re dedicated to releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name. But we seek to support local churches in caring for the most vulnerable children in their communities; the support we help to provide is not linked to children’s personal faith or religious beliefs or practices.
