the heart of the ministry…

Hope for the Fatherless is a ministry of Central Church of the Nazarene, born out of the passion of God’s people, whose hearts have been broken for His fatherless children.  We are driven by God’s commission in James 1:27, “…to look after orphans (and widows) in their distress…”  It is our mission to embrace the 143 million orphans worldwide by connecting His people to the needs of His fatherless, one act of obedience at a time.


Our mission is to provide hope for the fatherless by intersecting the lives of God’s fatherless children with His people to impact the Kingdom one life at a time.

…not to leave them (Psalm 146:9)
…come to them (Psalm 68:5)
…rescue them (John 14:18)
