ABBA Canada exists to raise the banner of God’s call to care for the fatherless. We exist to respond to the biblical call of James 1:27 “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Our dream is for every believer to be engaged with helping vulnerable children and we long to see thousands of children around the world cared for through this ministry, and others like it.
We do this through:
Providing financial assistance for adoption– The number one obstacle to adoption is the finances. We provide grants to help Christian families fulfill God’s call to adopt.
Equipping the Church to care for orphans and raising awareness– At the center of the gospel is the glorious reality that we have been adopted in Christ. This vertical reality ought to move us to care for the orphans in our world. There are approximately 132 million orphans in the world today; 30,000 in Canada alone. We provide assistance in establishing local Church adoption/foster care/orphan care ministries, including starting Church adoption funds.
Supporting adoptive & foster families– Adoption and foster care is hard and it is easy to feel alone. We want to connect you with other families and resources to help you.
