Founded in 1996, we are a Christian mission dedicated to the care of orphaned, abandoned and neglected children in Latvia and surrounding nations. In 1999 we expanded our mission to include ministry to families in crisis.We are a committed team of American, Latvian, and Russian men and women who share a passion to serve God as he changes lives and mends the broken hearted.
Sparrow’s Nest rescues children in need; relieves emotional and physical suffering; works to bring restoration in each child’s life, and then replaces the child in a family. We work alongside families in crisis to prevent the breakdown of the family, and support the rehabilitation of child and parents. We support the work of foster families, and promote guardianship and adoption.
Like a family, we provide food, clothing, medicine, education and safety. We look for gifts and talents in every child and reinforce the incredible value of each life entrusted to our care. We share the love of God and create an atmosphere of trust where broken hearts are mended and hope is restored. Our final work is to replace each child in a living permanent family.
