Oak Life Caregivers
As School of Orphan Care graduates, our caregivers are prepared to serve orphanages as house parents, directors, administrators and more. Each carries a passion to see God touch the lives of children in alternative care.
About our Caregivers
Oak Life Caregivers are a dedicated group of orphanage workers. They go where the need is greatest, and faithfully follow the Lord's calling on their lives. They are the front-line team in a child's story, and are prepared to help children in alternative care overcome their histories.
Each Caregiver has earned their Orphan Care Certificate with Oak Life, and are a part of our family. They are in agreement with our statement of faith, and stay connected with our support team.
We believe this group of incredible people is going to change the world of orphan care for the better.
Caregivers are self-funded through Oak Life by generous donors, churches and invested organizations. Caregivers grow their support by fundraising and promoting their Caregiver profile page. Any donations given towards a Caregiver are deposited to their bank account monthly.
Candidates must have successfully completed the Orphan Care Certification program.
In addition, Caregivers must sign a statement of faith and code of conduct, and attend an annual trauma-care training with Oak Life or other qualified organization.
Our Caregivers receive a unique education not offered anywhere else. In addition to this preparation, Oak Life offers its Caregivers the following:
- Dedicated support staff member for monthly debriefing
- Personal profile page for fundraising and updates
- Donors receive a charitable donation receipt for tax credit
- Access to Oak Life’s educational materials and conferences for further education
- Transition support, including finding the right orphanage, developing a mission, budgeting and long-term planning.
Our Caregivers can serve anywhere in the world!
Upon graduating from the Orphan Care Certification program, Oak Life works alongside Caregivers to find a suitable orphanage in which to volunteer, in the country of the Caregiver’s choice.
