“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 (ESV)
God’s call to His people through His Word is clear. The Bible mentions caring for the poor and oppressed nearly 2100 times. Currently, there are 143 million orphans worldwide. There are 2.3 billion Christians worldwide. The Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex has 4,000 children in foster care; 1,100 of these waiting children desire to be adopted into forever families. We have the ability to change these numbers for God’s children!
HighRidge Orphan Care provides support to HighRidge families who are adopting either locally or internationally. Your help provides children to find forever-permanent families. Here are the ways you can get involved:
Not everyone is called to adopt but James 1:27 clearly states that everyone is to do something. Giving to the Orphan Care Fund will help orphans internationally and locally thru partnerships and adoption.

There are two ways you can serve the HighRidge Orphan Care Ministry:
Events Team: Volunteers can serve at Orphan Care events. Events will be communicated through email when serving opportunities arise.
Care Communities: A team that wraps around a family when they take placement of a foster or adopted child. Roles consist of meal team, family helper, respite care and team lead.
Care Portal: An initiative that connects churches directly to the needs of vulnerable kids and families in our community. When needs arise volunteers will be notified.
Ready to serve? Let us know here:
We partner with HighRidge families as they go through the licensing process to foster/adopt by offering support, prayer and encouragement. After placement, Care Communities are available to members of the church which provide 6 months of wrap around care.
Ready to foster/adopt? Let us know here:
It is the desire of HighRidge Church to support families who are in the process of fostering or adopting, as they bring children into the safety and security of a family. Financial support is one of the many ways we can come alongside our orphan care families.
