Special needs, Orphaned, or Abandoned children’s Resources
Working to keep kids in families and caring for those who have none
SOAR is committed to working with local institutions, families, and individuals to see vulnerable children given the best opportunities possible. Whether through our Family Preservation Program, which supports families in choosing to keep and raise their child with disability, or through our work with children in orphanages, we are thrilled to be a part of seeing real change.
Little Eagles Take Off
A core value of the SOAR Team has always been to have local people right in the center of all we do. This is why, over the last year, the SOAR Team has worked tirelessly to see the hatching of a new local non-profit organization (NPO) that can reach even more directly to local hearts. We are proud to introduce to you Little Eagles as it takes off under the leadership of our local director, Mercy Hou.
The SOAR Team will continue in partnership with Little Eagles in our shared target areas including orphan care, abandonment prevention, and early intervention. We encourage donations to Little Eagles NPO as they get started. For instance, your gifts will enable their local support worker to be available 24 hours a day to connect with parents in crisis open to hearing about what options are available for them and their child and to help them on that journey. And hopefully into new areas in the years ahead as they soar to new heights.
On the donate page please choose “Project” and specify “Little Eagles NPO” as the beneficiary.

Update on The SOAR Village
In 2014, the doors opened for us to partner with the local orphanage in dramatic new ways and, after 5 years of this successful project, they have now taken on full funding and running of tailored, specialized care for 50+ children with intellectual and/or physical disabilities.
The SOAR Team is thrilled to be able to continue weekly visits with the children. We continue our traditions of birthday parties and other celebrations, facilitate progress towards educational goals and provide educational and therapy resources.
Your prayers and/or your financial gifts of any amount enable our ongoing participation in the children’s lives. Partner with us here.
Please specify your gift for ‘SOAR Village.’
Helping parents keep kids with special needs
The Family Service Center (now run in partnership with Little Eagles) is a welcoming place for families to get the information, assessment, and support they need. In order to prevent the heart-breaking decision to abandon, SOAR continues to be involved in supporting families facing the prospect of raising a child with disability. By providing a bridge to correct information and resources we hope to see the end of abandonment as parents are empowered to understand, embrace, and raise their child.
We welcome donations specified for ‘SOAR Family Preservation.’
