Expanding Family Solutions for OVC Grant Challenge: Updates from the Field

Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO)

Both scripture and science affirm: children grow best in healthy families. For vulnerable children and at-risk families, a wide range of family support and care options together contribute to a full “continuum of care” that meets the unique needs of each child and maximizes opportunities for children to grow up in nurturing families. The Christian Alliance for Orphans has offered this challenge grant opportunity to spark innovation as child-serving organizations create or expand effective family care solutions for children. A total of $50,000 was awarded in grants of $5,000 to $10,000 to organizations committed to developing or expanding family care solutions for children.

The organizations have reported their progress in a series of videos below.
