South Texas
Alliance for Orphans

South Texas Alliance for Orphans exists to serve and equip churches in fulfilling the biblical call to care for children and families impacted by the foster care system. The South Texas Alliance for Orphans has seen exponential growth in the past year, growing from 10 to 30 church partners in just nine months and receiving a number of grants to fulfill its work.

Although the Alliance is well known to its 30 church families, it is seeking to increase its presence across the broader community. They have prioritized improving organizational effectiveness to ensure that every child in need of a foster placement is connected with a loving home. The Alliance has a small administrative staff, but together with the board, has recently completed a comprehensive strategic plan.

For the remainder of 2018, Burnam | Gray is working with South Texas Alliance for Orphans to use their strategic plan to develop an operational plan with benchmarks and measurable objectives. We are working with the team to create a diversified annual fundraising plan, tools to streamline internal and external communications, and to implement strategies that convey the organization’s message more clearly to the broader community.

We are also working side by side with the Alliance to strengthen their current church collaborations and equip the churches with additional tools and resources around foster and adopt.
