Orphan Care

Orphan Care is about walking with families through the journey of adoption and foster care, but it's also about so much more. We also provide resources, support, and encouragement. You don't have to be a family looking to adopt or foster to participate! You can be a part of this ministry in multiple ways, including providing meals for families, helping with Parents Night Out events, and supporting families through their waiting process. The options are limitless. 

We want to join families in the process of expanding their hears and arms to a growing need of orphans around us--locally, nationally, and internationally. 

OUR MISSION: To further God's kingdom by caring for orphaned and abandoned children. 

OUR VISION:  To make an eternal difference in the lives of orphans and waiting children and promote awareness of God's heart for the orphan. 


Our Orphan and Foster Care Partnerships

  • HOPE HOUSE INTERNATIONAL

    HopeHouse International exists so that Orphans in Ukraine can become adopted by Christian couples within their country.  Adequate housing is a barrier for most citizens, and it is a government prerequisite for adoption.  HopeHouse International enables adoptions by addressing adequate housing needs which result in three or more children being given a family and a future.

  • SWEET SLEEP

    Sweet Sleep™ is a faith-based non-profit organization whose mission is to share God’s love by providing beds to the world’s orphaned and abandoned children. They currently work in Moldova, Africa and Haiti.

    Orphaned and abandoned and children suffer from lack of sufficient or healthy places to sleep at night. New beds give a child a place of their own — a place they can feel safe, warm, comforted, remembered and most of all, loved.

    Team members work alongside orphans for the goal of completing beds as they build one-of-a-kind relationships with orphaned and abandoned children who see their value as a creation of God for the first time. The love of Christ is communicated in unique and personal ways as team members also lead dozens, even hundreds, of children in Bible study, life skills, English classes, music and recreational activities where they will have the opportunity to spread the hope and love of Jesus Christ.

  • DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN’S SERVICES

    The mission of DCS is to empower families and support community safety and partnerships to help ensure safety, permanency and wellbeing for children.

    Help local children by becoming a foster parent or participating in the foster-to-adopt program through the Department of Children’s Services. The Safe Room — When a child is removed from their home, they enter a world of chaos and uncertainty. The Safe Room is located at one of the DCS intake centers in Davidson County and is staffed with volunteers to stay with the child while the social worker looks for a placement. Volunteers become some of the first adults this child encounters after being removed from their home. Volunteers are needed to sign up for 2 – 4 hour “on call” shifts to be the love of Christ to vulnerable children in our area.

  • TENNESSEE BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOME

    The mission of the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Homes is to minister the love of Jesus Christ to children and families in crisis. Their vision is to strive to be a ministry to children and families that leads them to become whole persons in Christ through faith, hope and love.

    TBCH provides residential care across five locations, and foster care services through our Caring Community Ministries. Because we teach Christian values throughout our organization, we do not accept government funding and instead rely on gifts from individuals and churches, as well as estate bequests, trust funds, investments and endowments. Brentwood Baptist members support the local TBCH  in the following ways:

    • TBCH is a Brentwood Baptist Hope for The World Mission Offering partner. 
    • Coordinating birthday parties and other activities for the children
    • Performing maintenance, lawn care, house cleaning, work in the commissary and repair work
    • Coordinating House Parents Night Out
    • Donating paper goods, gift certificates and other needs
    • Giving financially to the ongoing needs of the ministry
