Orphan Care Ministry

…exist to educate, equip and encourage God's people to step out in faith and care for orphans via adoption, foster care and humanitarian aid, in response to God's command to care for orphans as specified in James 1:27.

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
~ James 1:27 (ESV)

Forgotten No More encourages the church in reaching the lost (orphans) and learning to reflect the heart of God towards orphans so that they can become mature in their faith and better equipped to worship God in spirit and in truth as they minister to the least of these.
