Sponsor a Child

The Open Arms Foundation is a ministry that runs solely on the support of churches and individuals who choose to partner with the children’s cause. One way to personally get involved with the life of a child at Open Arms is to sponsor one of them. It costs $400 per child per month for them to live at the farm. $30 per month is how much it costs to sponsor a child. This comes out to just $1 per day! With this contribution you would be changing a child’s life forever and allowing them to have an opportunity to get a start in life. The money that comes through child sponsorship allows a child to have food, housing, clothes, recreation, healthcare, and most importantly a chance to grow up in an environment surrounded by Jesus.

Since our population at the boy’s farm can sometimes be transient, we don’t assign a single child to a sponsor, but we give you the opportunity to get to know all the children at the farm and know their stories.

If you want to sponsor a child please send an email to foundationopenarms@gmail.com with child sponsorship in the subject line and to begin donating press the donate with PayPal button on the right side of the page or if you work with checks please make the check payable to Open Arms Foundation and mail it to: 5345 Big Tyler Road, Cross Lanes, WV 25313
