The mission of Open Hearts for Orphans is focused on three areas: medical intervention for orphaned and abandoned children, meeting the basic needs of orphaned and abandoned children, and breaking down the financial barriers to adoption by providing ''Say Yes'' grants to families in the adoption process. In our medical intervention program, we help fund heart and other surgeries for orphans in need and provide necessary medical equipment/supplies to properly monitor medically fragile children. In our Orphan Care (basic needs) program, we fund special projects, and have helped so many vulnerable children and families in life-changing ways around the world by providing homes, furnishings (beds, bedding), latrines, water tanks, education, food support, clothing, and more. Through our ''Say Yes'' adoption grant program, we help families adopt children by breaking down the significant financial barriers in the adoption process. As of January 2022, we have given 75 grants to U.S. families adopting children from 18 different countries. In addition, we promote advocacy and awareness to the orphan crisis and adoption in general through our ARISE program offering Adoption Resources, Information, Stories, & Encouragement.
