4th Annual Orphan Conference
On Saturday, 9/26/15 we hosted our 4th annual Orphan Conference. About 50 attendees and agency reps gathered at Community Life Church in Catskill, NY to be inspired and equipped to heed the call of
James 1:27.
Former foster child and now adoptive mom,
Mandy Litzke of Safe Harbor Orphan Care Ministries was our inspiring keynote. Guests were also moved by John Moritz of Hearts of the Father Outreach and Cher Joseph, home finder for Albany County.
Thanks for all your support . . .
As we close out 2015 we are celebrating a year of fruit and growth here at JFO! We are excited about the testimonies YOU have been sharing with us at our events. We thank God for all of you and your support.
Many have begun or even completed foster parent training classes. Several adoptions, especially through foster care, are coming to fruition and one international adoption is in process!
We've been busy building good relationships with local foster care agencies and feedback from them echoes their appreciation for what we do as our work helps them find families for waiting children.
We'd love to hear from you! Please send your feedback if you've attended any of our events and/or heard us on the radio.

L ooking  Ahead . . .
As we step into 2016 we're excited to announce that JFO has stepped out as its own entity and we've incorporated! We are just awaiting our 501c3 but tax-deductible gifts can still be made to JFO/GCC until the transition is complete! 
Our mission is always to rally the Church for the cause of the fatherless. God sets the lonely in families and JFO is calling families to open their hearts and open their homes to vulnerable children in foster care and in orphanages.
