Until Every Child Has a Family

It’s a thrilling time for those of us who advocate on behalf of orphaned and vulnerable children. Around the world, a profound shift is underway—from orphanages and residential institutions to placing children in the right safe and nurturing homes. This new care model includes supporting children and families to prevent separation, reuniting children with their birth families, kinship care, and adoption. And Miracle Foundation is on the front line.

Here’s how we’re contributing to this revolutionary shift with our “Child-First” approach in 3 focus areas: 

Ensure Each Child Thrives. All children deserve an education, nutrition, health, and protective services—no matter where they live. That’s why we developed and implemented the Thrive Scale, a proven care model based on the UN Rights of the Child. Currently, we are working alongside hundreds of orphanages to reunite children with their families and to provide each child with the quality of care, and dignity, that is their right.

Strengthen The Childcare System. Every day around the world, social workers, caregivers, and government officials make decisions that impact millions of orphaned children. They are the “boots on the ground.” Together with UNICEF, we provide training and educational resources that empower workers in the childcare ecosystem to give children a better future.

Keep Families Together. Separation of families happens primarily because of family crisis and poverty, not for lack of love. We partner with community programs that identify at-risk children and offer support to vulnerable families long before an orphanage becomes a necessity. Prevention is the key.

When you donate, you become the hero that makes this change possible.

Help get children into safe and loving families.
