Orphan Outreach encompasses a broad range of ministry to the children residing in state care. Through a combination of serving both the felt and spiritual needs of the children, we have watched many children graduate out of the system successfully, who might have faced a much different future otherwise.
Outreach "Follow Up" Clubs
Our Outreach (follow up) Clubs ministry provides consistent, nurturing relationships with volunteers and Livada staff to those children in state care. Creative, energetic weekly ministry programs help foster these relationships, as well as build on the summer camp lessons and experiences.
Orphan Outreach (and Prevention of Abandonment ministry) also provides humanitarian aide such as providing winter coats, winter and summer footwear, building playgrounds, food packets, counseling, scholarships, special education help, and distributing “Operation Christmas Child” boxes to all the orphans in our county each year.
We also provide dental care for children in state care and in rural Gypsy villages who have urgent needs throughout the year, as well as providing dental check ups when we have volunteer dental assistance available from America and Holland.
Orphan Graduate Care
There are many opportunities to help those who have graduated out of state care to get on their feet and on the right path. Through our Orphan Graduate Care and Mentor Apartments program, we are able to assist with counseling, physical aide, assistance in finding a job and other social services.
