OUR MISSION
..
Child Abuse Intervention Fund demonstrates Christian love and compassion by bringing hope and healing to children suffering from abuse or neglect. That mistreatment may originate in family relationships or from external forces such as unscrupulous employers or others who exploit minors for selfish purposes. In addition to our own direct services, we partner with other reputable organizations to fulfill this purpose by providing a national hotline, intervention assistance, legal referrals, and support groups. We also provide food, shelter, medical care, counseling, education, and other necessary services for abused and needy children in Third World countries and in the United States.

 

HISTORY

Child Abuse Intervention Fund was founded in 2000. Since then hundreds of thousands of children have been impacted by our work throughout the United States as well as through significant projects in Bolivia, Brazil, Cameroon, China, El Salvador, Honduras, India, Israel, Liberia, Mexico, Peru, Romania, Sudan, Thailand, and Ukraine.

TOUCHSTONES OF FAITH

We believe that God is love—unconditional, unfathomable, eternally reconciling love, the source of all life and wholeness.            

We believe that the Bible is the redemptive story of God’s love for mankind—divinely inspired and fully trustworthy as our guide when properly interpreted, understood, and applied.                                         

We believe that Jesus is the perfect expression of God’s love—revealing divine grace, mercy, forgiveness, and justice. Jesus also exemplifies the way God desires for each of us to live.                        

We believe that God’s love dwells among us, within us, and through us by the power of the Holy Spirit—revitalizing and empowering, helping each of us achieve our full potential as children of God.                            

We believe that we are all on a search for the truth of God which sets us free. Everyone has their own unique life-journey to experience through God’s love and grace. 

We believe that our mission in life is to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.

We believe that God moves us to join together in communities practicing faith, hope, and love. God desires for us to live in spiritual unity, making the church a place of inclusiveness, welcoming and celebrating all of God’s people.
