About Our Partner

Christian Alliance for Children in Zambia


The Bill and Bette Bryant Crisis Nursery is a safe place deeply rooted in love, prayer, and tender concern for toddlers and preschoolers who critically need specialized nutritional and psychological care. Dedicated social workers assess the children and work to place them into a family. Authorities work diligently with the home staff trying to locate any family that the children may have in the area. Jake is one of these children. Abandoned at birth, he spent his first two years living and thriving in House of Moses. Although the social workers worked tirelessly to try and find relatives to care for him, they were not successful. When Jake turned two, he transitioned to the Bill and Bette Bryant Crisis Nursery where he continued to develop as a healthy toddler, enjoying the Learning Center of Joy and interacting with the other children. Jake was cleared by government authorities and placed into the Foster-to-Adopt program where, after a thorough matching process, he was placed with the Libuku family. Jake has settled easily into his new family. Best of all, he knows he has a mommy and daddy of his very own.

The Impact

In 2017 44 children were reintegrated with family or adopted and 90 assessments were completed. Over the past five years, the Christian Alliance for Children in Zambia has received over 1,300 children, including newborn babies. Of these, more than half were reunited with their families; others were adopted, placed in foster families and/or transferred to other permanent homes.

The Need

The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $60,000 for the Bill and Bette Bryant Crisis Nursery to continue its work in God’s mission.
