Connect 1:27 helps Christian families and churches across Louisiana to answer God's call to minister to orphans through Foster Care, Adoption, and Orphan Care ministries. God has given clear commands in His Word for Christians to care for orphans. "Religion that our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans… in their distress..." (James 1:27).

There are more than 4,500 children in Louisiana's foster care system. These children are our modern-day orphans. There are a number of these children lingering in foster care because they need an adoptive family. Connect 1:27 assists churches with orphan ministry development and works with Christian families interested in serving as foster/adoptive parents.

Through online resources, vision seminars, ministry workshops, and foster/adoption services, Connect 1:27 is ready to assist you and your church to be the "helper of the orphan" (Psalm 10:14). Please visit to learn more or call 318.343.2233
