"Hosting has changed me more than I could have imagined."
-Areal Gunther, Host Family
Before 16 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation built to care for orphans. We strive to get these children hosted by a family who is either considering adoption or will advocate for adoption. Our hope is that the hosting process can provide the avenue to find a loving family for each child. We are dedicated to rescuing as many orphans as possible before they turn 16 years old and age out of the system.
