A Journey of Healing & Hope
Thousands of kids are waiting to discover lasting joy.
Romania has an orphan crisis. Every day, children are abandoned in state institutions or on the streets. These children are forced to grow up in state custody, where many suffer from chronic dependence, loneliness, homelessness, sexual exploitation, and many other cycles of self-destructive behavior. Pathway to Joy exists to bring healing and hope to the orphaned and needy children of Romania. We seek to accomplish this mission by helping every child build a resourceful, joy-filled, and Christ-centered life.
How We Serve
Practical, Relational, and Spiritual Care
We regularly visit government placement centers to develop healthy relationships with the kids, provide for their needs, and encourage their walk with Christ.
Help Transition to Responsible Adulthood
Our Success for Life Program provides community, stability, education and real-world, hands-on training and experience.
Solve the Orphan Crisis for Good
Our goal is to help eradicate Romania’s orphan crisis through a long-term investment in the Romanian populations that are most prone to abandonment.
