A Ministry To Orphans

Who We Are

About Us

My Father’s Arrows, Inc. is a faith based, community driven, public charity that is a ministry to orphans. MFA was established in 2014 in efforts to do a greater work for the children in foster care by our founders who had 44 yrs. cumulative experience as foster-adoptive parents and in service with special needs children. Our founders recognized that instability in placements and lack of long-term connections for the children contributed to decreased school performance, increased negative behaviors, overall poor choices, and lack of support for them as young adults.  A mighty vision for change was born, and My Father's Arrows set out to work.

We educate the community on the children’s needs, recruit more caregivers and advocates for the children, and procure child-specific resources to help them reach their maximum potential.

Our Children’s Home, affectionately called “Mama’s House”, is a safe, loving, trauma-informed Christian home.  My Father's Arrows is registered with The Florida Association of Christian Child Caring Agencies as a Type II child- caring agency under Florida Statue 409.176. "Mama's House" is a private placement children’s home for boys and girls ages 0-17 who have been abused, neglected, abandoned, rejected, or are otherwise struggling with the impact of their traumatic experiences. These children are often struggling with negative behaviors, rebellion, academic issues, and dysfunctional attachments. We provide the 24 hour supervision, high structure, and low relational pressure that the children of trauma need in order to thrive. We utilize the TBRI model of parenting with focus on faithfully meeting the needs behind behaviors. We provide consistency in responding to behaviors with correction based on Christian values while making the world small for the children in a comfortable, residential farmstead setting. We focus on educational excellence, spiritual growth, and a healthy lifestyle with an abundance of recreation.

By targeting the high risk, high volume population of children impacted by trauma and the foster care system, and focusing on meeting this group’s most critical needs, MFA is creating systemic change that not only impacts the youth served, but also the community at large.

Hope to the hopeless. Care to the lonely. Compassion to the broken.  Love to the invisible.

How we reach ?

Our Mission

Provide needing children with safe, permanent, loving Christian homes where they will develop into lifelong servants for our Lord Jesus Christ and live as responsible, educated, law abiding citizens with great promise and hope for the future.

What We Do ?

Our Vision

To facilitate, encourage, and publicize the need for foster/adoption/advocacy/mentoring of special needs children as being defined as children who are: over 10 yrs. of age, part of a minority group, part of sibling group, affected by mental or physical disabilities, and do not currently have parents to care for them. To inspire and educate community members that otherwise would not have considered serving these children in such capacity. To coordinate resources for these children that enhance their quality of life and assist them in maximizing their potential for independence while meeting their unique challenges.
