Open Hands 4 the Fatherless is a response to the call to love and defend the fatherless. We seek to "extend the same mercy (to orphans) that was extended to us, and we do it in tangible ways" (Matt Maher). Tangible ways such as providing funds so that they can build villages to provide a roof over their heads, a place to sleep at night, meals everyday, clean water to drink, schools for education, and Mama's to take care of them, all facilitated with a local Bible believing church.
Open Hands 4 the Fatherless partners with Coreluv International. The Schools 4 Advancement Initiative was started in the Summer of 2013 and works to battle the huge education needs Haitian children face.
Open Hands 4 the Fatherless envisions engaging the communities or "spheres of influence" (Beth Moore) and churches of OH4F members to not only donate financially, but more importantly, donate members' time with love. This can be fulfilled through our Vision Trips to Haiti, visiting and experiencing the love of God's children, which spreads the vision exponentially to those who attended and their communities.
