God had been stirring a passion to care for the fatherless in the hearts of Christians in our county for some time. Out of those stirrings in October 2010, God brought together several local churches to form the Centre County Orphan Care Alliance. We believe in honoring God’s call, great love and great heart for the fatherless in our local community.
In Centre County, we seek to…
Ensure that every Christian is aware of the plight of the fatherless locally and globally.
Motivate every believer to engage in their responsibility to care for the fatherless.
Provide biblically-based resources and material support to help create well-equipped homes for every fatherless child in Centre County.
