ONEless began in 2010 when the Co-founders, Milt and Joy Owens, learned about the Global Orphan Crisis. There are roughly 153 million orphans worldwide (UNICEF/2018). Even though they were not called to adopt and instead of being overwhelmed by statics, they wanted to do something to help. They formed ONEless Ministries (a 501(c)3 nonprofit), providing financial grants to qualifying families in the adoption process. Every child deserves a forever family. Whether you choose to adopt or not, every person has it within themselves to make a difference.

ONEless exists to make ONE less orphan, ONE less vulnerable child by giving Adoption Grants to qualifying families in the adoption process.
