Reach Out Orphanage Ministries
- North Carolina
Reach Out Orphanage Ministries (ROOM) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Charlotte Metro, North Carolina, serving children in Honduras, India and Nepal.
Our mission is to share the love of Christ by empowering children and communities through abandonment prevention, orphanage support and overall solutions in orphan care.
Prevention: ROOM Abandonment Prevention programs empower parents to care for their own children through parent education, health interventions, nutrition assistance and daycare services.
Support: ROOM provides support to public and private orphanages through our Orphanage Care programs. Our goal is to empower orphanages to become clean, healthy and filled with God's love. We empower orphanage to become clean by replacing outdated appliances, providing new bedding and securing items necessary to maintain cleanliness. We empower orphanges to become healthy by providing safe drinking water, fresh fruit and vegetables, vitamins, personal hygiene education and routine health and dental services. We empower orphanages to become filled with God's love by providing Gospel materials, specifically culturally-appropriate and age-appropriate Bibles.
Solutions: ROOM works towards orphan care solutions by promoting short-term and long-term placements in foster families and Transition Homes. In ROOM transition homes, children can live temporarily in a family home environment before transitioning into a foster family.
We accomplish our goals by working alongside orphanage staff members and forming effective partnerships with orphanage leaders. ROOM works globally with local governments, churches, ministries, volunteers and nonprofit agencies in developing nations. ROOM also works with churches, mission teams, sponsors and donors in the United States.
Reach Out Orphanage Ministries' ultimate goal is to help create a world where all God's children will grow up in a stable, loving family. We look forward to the day when our services are no longer needed.
