Christian alliance for orphans exists to motivate, unify, and equip the body of christ to live out god's mandate to care for the orphan with the vision to have every orphan experience god's unfailing love and know jesus as savior.


Advocacy and education - these diverse efforts include regular interviews with both christian and mainstream media; articles and opinion editorials on orphan issues; speaking and teaching at conferences and other events nationwide; the cafo blog; cafo monthly newsletter and other listserv communications; strategic use of facebook, twitter and other social media; videos and other visual media products; phone and in-person meetings with thought leaders, pastors, grassroots advocates and other influencers; email and phone response to a wide range of inquiries regarding orphan-related issues; three resource-rich websites (cafo's main site, summit, and orphan sunday); monthly training webinars for church ministries; and much more. The cafo summit, orphan sunday, gmi and nfci each also have strong advocacy and education components, as do the cafo aging out initiative and the african american church initiative. The national foster care initiative works toward the goal of, by 2024, having more christian families waiting to receive foster children than children waiting for a family. The nfci not only inspires involvement - it also connects emerging church ministries, networks and families with the best models and resources nationwide. Orphan sunday is the second sunday each november. What began in a small church in zambia is now a catalyst for awareness and action across the u. S. And in 50+ countries worldwide. A network of 300+ volunteer regional coordinators help stimulate and resource locally-led events around the globe.

orphan summit conference - the annual cafo summit has become the hub for what christianity today called "the burgeoning orphan care movement. " summit in 2014 drew 2,500+ from across the u. S. And 30+ nations: church leaders, orphan advocates, adoptive and foster parents, and veterans of global orphan care. Summit offers extensive training and resources for well-informed, highly-effective ministry.

global movements - the cafo global movements initiative (gmi) invests in emerging leaders worldwide, providing technical support, leadership training and more. The gmi serves the church in developing countries with the resources of the entire cafo community, working toward the day when the local church in every nation is known as the primary answer for the global orphan crisis.
