Reclaim 1:17 is the orphan care ministry of Southbridge Fellowship. We want to reclaim God’s heart for the fatherless. Reclaim 1:17 works to bring awareness to the orphan crisis and the needs of orphans and their adoptive families. This ministry provides opportunities to learn and respond to the orphan crisis.
The greatest obstacle facing families considering adoption is cost. The average cost for adoption ranges between $20K-$30K. Donations to this ministry assist families who are in the adoption process in the form of interest free loans and grants. The ABBA Fund helps Southbridge manage these funds and assists in the administrative process.
