History

We are in a beautiful fight against the dark warfare on the lives of children.

It started in 2008 with a simple magazine ad that said there are 143 million orphans. That statistic jumped right off the page and stomped on our hearts. It was unfathomable to think that in a world with 2 billion Christians, there could be such a devastating crisis for the children God specifically calls us to defend.

We learned that if just 7% of today's Christians cared for a single orphan, there would be no more orphans. And with that, Child Bridge was born.

God moved in our hearts to become defenders of the defenseless, the abused and neglected. And what better place to start than in Montana-a state known by most people for its breathtaking beauty, but lesser known for the darkness within. With one of the nation's highest per capita rates of children in foster care, we knew our mission to find families to care for these children had to begin right here.

The truth is that there are not enough families to care for these innocent children. We bridge the gap by raising up bold and passionate Christians to do the hard work of caring for the vulnerable in our communities-whether a child's need is a few days, a few months or forever.

Our aim is to inspire a movement of fearless, joyful ambassadors of Christ who fight for children who bear the invisible marks of being unseen, unheard and unwanted. It will be a glorious day when we have an army of these families and can say, "God's people are boldly caring for His children."

We do what we do because we believe every child is a masterpiece worthy of being seen.
