Renacer Church in Bogota, Colombia is (un)adopted's local partner that works to serve the orphaned and vulnerable children in Colombia. The congregants at Renacer are committed to obeying the biblical mandate to care for vulnerable children, and they do so through their fruitful relationships with both public and private orphanages. They also have created a large support network for foster families, and many of their church members have opened up their homes to foster children.
In addition, this church also hosts a pastors' conference each year that focuses on guiding local pastors through a study on the biblical mandate to care for orphaned and vulnerable children.
Jon and Shannon Haslett started ministering to "boys of the street," or boys who literally have no one to care for them and live on the street, in Venezuela in 1992. In 1994, they opened the boys' home there. Around 2005 they handed off the direction/ministry to local Venezuelans and moved to the DR to open Los Ninos de La Luz.
At the home, the boys have the opportunity to grow up in a safe environment where they can learn, play, and come to the knowledge of Christ alongside boys who share similar stories.
Reforma Church in Guatemala works in a variety of ways to minister to orphaned and vulnerable children along with vulnerable families. They do this primarily through two different ministries: "Manos" and "Somos."
"Manos" is a ministry that supports vulnerable families by providing groceries and supplies to families in need in the town of Bethania.

The Global Care Initiative is Lifeline's newest endeavor to provide resources to in-country teams and partners around the world! As our ministry serves in over 19+ countries through adoption and (un)adopted, our heart at Lifeline is to ensure that local believers are not only aware of the orphan care crisis in their community and what the gospel teaches regarding our involvement, but also are equipped to do the ministry the Lord has called them to do.
Through the Global Care Initiative we are empowering the local church in each country by providing training, education, resources, and curriculum that they will be leading out in their own communities. The Global Care Initiative will provide the educational means to support our partners all over the world through our various ministries at Lifeline.
We are excited to have the opportunity to share specific ways you, your family or your church can come alongside these ministries! Your generosity will play a crucial role in the care of many vulnerable children around the world!
