General Giving

Child Sponsorship

We need your help! More kids have arrived needing our love and care at the In Step Children’s Home.

That means we need additional sponsorships to feed, clothe, house, educate, and counsel these precious abused and abandoned kids.

  • $7 covers a day for a child
  • $49 covers a week for one child
  • $98 covers two weeks per child
  • $210 is a home run and provides a whole month of provision

The goal is 100% child sponsorship!
