Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission Statement: Speaking boldly for the fatherless.  Advocating that all children, regardless of circumstance, race, or origin, are children of God, and deserve physical and spiritual restoration, implemented by the body of Christ, in obedience to the commands of the Father.

The heart of this ministry lies within its name.  Not only with one child, our daughter, Katelyn, one of God’s children, who was once an orphan and was claimed by our God, but also for all of the other children that are orphaned.

This is a ministry in memory of Katelyn Estrella, the twin sister of Elizabeth, daughter of Kelly and Sheila. Katelyn is no longer with us on earth but is living with our Heavenly Father. We seek to help other children in loving memory of her.

The simple definition of Katelyn’s Fund would be to bring orphan awareness to others, provide emotional and prayer support to families, and assist Christian families with the high costs of adoptions, although the ministry of Katelyn’s Fund is so much more.  As we seek to capture the heart of adoption, we are devoted to actively and boldly speak of God’s loving call for us as His adoptive children.

Our vision is simple: to care for the orphan in whatever way He asks.

For us, this looks like partnering with the Lord in three specific ways:

We advocate for the fatherless.

We speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and bring awareness of their needs to the body of believers. While we advocate for Christian families to respond to the Biblical call to adopt, we also look for ways to minister to children who continue to wait for or will never know the love of an earthly family.

We equip families and caregivers.

We serve families and caregivers by sharing resources, providing educational opportunities, offering a support community, and assisting with financial grants.

We love the Lord.

We love because He first loved us. For His glory, we join with the body to be mobilized on behalf of the orphan, and we authentically intercede for all of His children.
