4KenyasKids (formerly known as Compassionate Social Care Ministries) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated in the State of Illinois. 4KenyasKids exists to support comprehensive care to orphans and other vulnerable children in Kenya. We EDUCATE those who are unable to afford schooling, EQUIP widows and extended family members to care for orphans, and PROTECT children who are vulnerable and in need of care.

In late 2007, Reverend Dennis and Deaconess Lorna Meeker began working with orphans and widows in the Kibera slum of Nairobi while serving under the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya. During late 2008, Jacob Fraher also began volunteering with community schools and orphanages in the Kibera slum. When Jacob discovered two desperate children in need of care, the Meekers offered to provide them both a loving home. Six months later, in July 2009, Jacob partnered with Dennis and Lorna to form CSCM as a U.S. based 501(c)(3) organization. In 2011, Redeemer Lutheran Church in Seymour, IN began managing the U.S. side of operations and rebranded CSCM as 4KenyasKids. By the Grace of God, 4KenyasKids now supports the education of over 100 orphans through a child sponsorship program, strengthens widows and extended families to care for vulnerable children, and operates a Family Based Care Rescue Center for children in desperate need.
