Who We Are

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”. – Edmund Burke

Who We Are

We are a group of committed believers that see the crisis with children and have found a sustainable solution to engage churches in their mission to care for orphans and widows.

God has a heart for all people, but a special place for those who are destitute, and so should we.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:  to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”-  James 1:27

Our Mission (Why we do what we do)

Making a lasting difference in vulnerable children’s lives

Our Purpose

Empower and engage churches to raise up and support foster and adoptive parents who are committed to changing the lives of vulnerable children

Our Vision

We ignite churches and communities to support foster and adoptive families.


Our Leadership Team

Kim Trainer

I am the  happy mother of five children, four of which are in college/graduated and one child still at home. One married with twin grandboys!  I have been married to Tony for 30 years. During this next season of life, the critical need to stand up and advocate for children who cannot stand for themselves is more dire than ever before in history. And so, my life’s calling continues… If it had not been for 2 little girls who were being sex trafficked in Rock Hill, SC by their mother, I would have continued to grieve, and yet look the other way, always asking “What could I really do?”. When I heard about these children, I committed that day to never be on the side of “doing nothing” ever again!  Since then, I have tirelessly worked to build this ministry to Ignite churches, communities and volunteers to do more….  Though there are countless ways to serve this community, I wholeheartedly believe that the winning combination is establishing Care Communities in churches. When a family is called to foster or adopt, they bring more than just a good will, they bring with them two words that have changed societies for centuries- Jesus and a loving Family. We are better together and TOGETHER we will see change made.
