Mission

Wide Horizons For Children is dedicated to the well-being and security of vulnerable and orphaned children worldwide.

Through a range of innovative programs, we:

  • Keep vulnerable families together
  • Provide loving, quality care for children living in orphanages
  • Build and support families through adoption

Our Impact

Our mission began in 1972, when a few compassionate individuals started a feeding center in war-torn Saigon to save starving and abandoned children. Since then, we’ve worked in nearly 60 countries and improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of children.

 

It’s an honor to work with my colleagues at Wide Horizons For Children. Having traveled with them to Africa and Guatemala, I have witnessed their dedication, strong ethics and high standards, their effective programs that strengthen families and their commitment to every child and family they serve.
