What We Do

We Provide Help...

in a variety of personal and practical ways through our volunteers and team members as well as our increasing network of resources.

In Romania, we come alongside to assist and encourage local partners who are caring for hundreds of older adults who would otherwise be homeless. 

In North Carolina, we work to help those aging alone remain safe and loved in their own homes for as long as possible. Occupational therapy led assessments allow us to make minor home modifications and provide adaptive equipment as necessary. 

We Provide Hope...

Simply by being a listening ear, lending a helping hand, and by sharing the hope we have found through our faith in Jesus Christ.

Wherever we are serving, we seek to lighten the staggering depression and isolation that comes with aging alone.

How We Provide Help and Hope for Older Adults in Need



An older friend in Romania is delighted to receive new shoesWe partner with Viorel and Florica Pasca in Western Romania, helping to raise awareness and funds to assist them in providing shelter, nutrition, medical care and God's love for nearly 500 people who are elderly and frail and who would otherwise be homeless. They have been helping older adults in Romania since 2006 and we’ve had the privilege of serving with them since 2011. To date they have welcomed 2800 older adults to humble cares homes in a variety of rural villages.

In 2018 we were introduced to Pastor Mircea Badea and his wife Dana and immediately began dreaming about how Elder Orphan Care could come alongside them as they care for over 100 older adults. In the years since, and thanks to our generous donors, we have been able to help provide basic necessities for those in their care as well as resources for their ongoing ministry to elder orphans. Currently we are in the process of raising funds to equip their kitchen project.


At least once a year we train and lead teams who travel to Romania to serve hundreds of older adults in need. Every trip is unique in the types of help we provide based on what our partners identify as most pressing. We endeavor to meet practical needs while also ministering through the gift of our presence.

Safe and loved at home 

In Cabarrus and Rowan counties of North Carolina we serve adults aged sixty and older who wish to remain in their home but are at risk of losing that ability due to safety concerns, poverty, or lack of support. We provide friendship, socialization, assessments that are based on occupational therapy, purposeful projects, minor home modifications, and assistance with necessities.
