Surrounding one family at a time – right where they are.
Let’s be real, adopting and fostering kiddos is hard work. It genuinely takes a village to raise a single child. Circle provides practical ways to surround a family to meet real-life needs. Our wrap-around care allows the Body of Christ, service professionals, business owners, and volunteers to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with a family.
When you support OJC, you aren’t just supporting a team working tirelessly behind the scenes. Your generosity goes to directly support REAL families to surround them with the practical care they need.
Families – help is on the way!
