New Sponsorship Program

We are always looking for a way to connect our donors with the people we serve on a daily basis. It’s our desire that our partners be well informed so that they can be in constant prayer for the vulnerable people their gifts are helping. We also want you to be able to see how you are making a difference.

With those thoughts in mind, we have developed a new sponsorship program for people who want to give on a monthly basis and help us expand our ministry to homeless children and families in the Philippines. This ministry has two parts, the rescue center and the street outreach.

But when you become a sponsor, you are sponsoring them both. 

You can see all the details about these ministries by clicking here. But let me just say this, when you give to this ministry, you are giving to sustain some of the most broken and vulnerable people there are. We serve runaway children, homeless families, and everyone in between.

Just a couple days ago, Travis was on the streets in Bacolod City and met Mildred. She is homeless and sleeps every night in front of a large Catholic cathedral. Mildred is very sweet and depends upon food from our street outreach team for survival.


The many children that we serve is sometimes overwhelming. The Sharpe family has spent the last month in the Philippines and they got very attached to several of the kids. These kids live right outside the hotel where the Sharpe’s were staying. In the picture below, the Sharpe took several of the kids to Chow-King, a popular fast food restaurant.


They did what they could while they were living close by, but the time has come for the Sharpe’s to return home to the states. The good news is that through the new sponsorship program, you can donate and ensure these same children have not only food and clothes, but also the hope of the gospel.

Here’s where we are now

As of this writing, we currently have five monthly sponsors. There combined monthly gifts total $315 per month. Our monthly budget for the rescue center/street outreach is $1000 per month.

So how have we been making it? We have made it by God’s grace and his provision. Money from various fundraisers has been applied to cover the costs. But it’s time to meet our budget and we are asking for new sponsors to jump on board and help us with this critical need.

How the sponsorship program will work

Once you sign up to be a monthly sponsor, you will receive bi-monthly email updates with pictures and a brief commentary about what has been happening in the ministry of the rescue center/street ministry. We will do our best to keep you well informed and up to date with current happenings and needs.

There are three easy ways to sign up and begin your sponsorship. You can give through PayPal with your own account or with a debit card, you can choose our bank draft giving option, or you can send a check each month. All of these options are listed below.

Sponsorship amounts are given monthly and can be $25, $50, $100, or an amount of your choice.
