Although a thriving country, China still has tens of thousands of orphaned and abandoned children in need of a family. We help many children in China find families through adoption, but for some, that is not the answer. We are partnering with the Chinese government to help find each of these children the loving home they deserve.
We are serving children and families in China through:
- In-country foster care
- Family preservation
Since 1992, we have facilitated more than 2,200 Chinese adoptions. We have served more than 50 children through foster care and provided homes to 20 children with special needs. Since 2000, we also have been involved with “Every Child Deserves a Family” conferences that support orphanage directors and foster care workers. Our continuing goal is to help even more vulnerable children.
These children need a family
Bethany has received 12 referrals who need to be placed in 90 days. These children need a loving family or they may spend the rest of their lives in an orphanage. Will you be that forever family for these children?

Sponsor a child or a family in need:
Can you extend a hand in love to a child or family in need? Families and communities benefit in tangible ways from sponsorship. Through Bethany, your money provides direct and specific care based on the individual needs of a family. When you sponsor through Bethany, you will join a group of sponsoring individuals to provide the level of care that is needed.
