What is distinctive about Compassion International?
As a Christian organization, we’re:
We partner exclusively with local churches, equipping church leaders to meet the real needs of their communities and the poorest of the poor who need their care.
Our commitment to Christ compels us to help local churches minister to the poor and share the Good News of Jesus.
Our ministry is focused on whole-child development. Our intention in spiritual formation is that each child experience faith in Jesus that endures into adulthood. Faith is never forced or coerced — but always available.
Compassion is about more than sponsoring a child ... it’s about releasing entire families from poverty in Jesus’ name!

What people are saying about Compassion International ...
As pastors, we teach biblical principles. We’ve got to give our people some tools to put them into action. [Compassion] is the best tool I’ve found. It’s so easy and tangible.Senior Pastor Chris BrownNorth Coast Church
