Mission Statement


Empowering vulnerable families to keep their children at home and out of orphanages by delivering holistic and high quality services.

Description


Abide Family Center was started to respond to the over use of orphanages in Uganda. It is estimated that over 80% of the children living in orphanages in Uganda have family. Abide was started out of a desire to give vulnerable families the opportunity to keep their children at home and reduce the amount of children entering orphanages. We do this by coming alongside at-risk families through programs including Case Management and Counseling, Small Business Development, Parenting Classes, Early Childhood Education, Emergency Response Housing, Pastoral Services, and Medical and Nutritional Services.
