A Note From Our Founder

“We are watching literally hundreds of children’s lives changed by the love of willing families strengthened by the Ruth Project. When you financially support the Ruth Project, you support these families. And when you support families over the long haul, you transform a child’s life. Come alongside us; let’s continue to love children and share the hope of Jesus by abundantly providing for foster and adoptive families.

Because you give, the Ruth Project can fulfill our mission to provide practical provisions, ongoing support, and advocacy/training to foster and adoptive families. Our vision is to care for the over 400,000 modern-day orphans in homes today and wipe out the up to 75% attrition rate of first-time foster families. Thank you so much for faithfully giving and for partnering with us!”

-Tammy McMahan, Founder and Director of the Ruth Project

This includes our donkey, highland cow, chickens, ducks, and pup! Routine care will be assisting in feeding, grooming, and spending time with the animals to ensure friendliness. Training will be provided, no experience necessary.
