A Child in Desperate Need of Help Is at the Center of All We Do

For almost 50 years, Wide Horizons has worked with orphaned children worldwide. During this time, we have observed that a child is most at risk of becoming an orphan when a perfect storm of crises takes hold of their family.

Given this truth, we decided to see what would happen if we intervened with help BEFORE these crises took hold. We focused relentlessly on keeping the most at-risk families intact — and made a startling discovery.

We can prevent a child from becoming an orphan by providing integrated services to preserve and strengthen their family.

So this is what we do. And for those children who are already orphaned or abandoned when we first meet them, we do everything we can to help build nurturing families within an orphanage or through adoption.

The donations provided are fundamental for covering the Home’s operational expenses, as they are used to pay rent, salaries of staff and professionals, and food for the children currently living at the Home as well as other significant expenses without which we would not be able to operate. It is because of this, that without your support, we could not exist or provide the support and care that we currently provide to the children. —Dinora Orphanage Director, Guatemala
Thanks for all your sage advice. You are a gift! —Laura Mother of Adult Adoptee, Post Adoption Services
With the help of Wide Horizons our 3 beautiful daughters from China joined our family! I never worried when I was in China because they took great care of us! I was so confident of their support that during our last trip I traveled without my husband! It's important to us that an agency does family preservation work and Wide Horizons is very active with that. … You are not one family of many – everyone at Wide Horizons knew our family – knew what stage in the process we were on and the name and face of our child. It's like being a part of a family. If you are researching agencies, look no further than Wide Horizons! —Alison & Dana Adoptive Parents, China
