"I have spent a lot of time in my life chasing championships, awards, and trying to be the MVP, the most valuable player. But ultimately, God opened my eyes and wrecked my heart to help me realize that our Savior, Jesus, died for humanity and has called and commanded us to go care for and love His MVPs—the Most Vulnerable People in the world." – Tim Tebow
Through every initiative, every official ministry partnership, every project, and every action we take here at TTF, we work toward our mission of bringing Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need, with a vision to reach the Most Vulnerable People in the world. Everything we do is to help those who have been viewed as less than, insignificant or cursed, who have been thrown away, abandoned, trafficked or orphaned, or are in need of life-changing medical intervention.
Just as every life is valuable to God, every life is valuable to us at TTF. We run urgently toward people in chaos, crisis, hardship, and darkness, armed with the light and hope of Jesus Christ. We run as quickly as we can because, ultimately, their needs can't wait.
The Tim Tebow Foundation is called to fight for the world's most vulnerable people through four main areas of focus: Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation, Orphan Care + Prevention, Profound Medical Needs, and Special Needs Ministry. TTF executes this calling through our main sub-initiatives – the strategies and programs that carry out how we pray, research, and act upon transformational life ministry. TTF partners with like-minded organizations and ministries, law enforcement, and integral government entities around the globe to expand, build, and catalyze life-changing ministry programs and projects.
Currently, there are an estimated 153 million orphaned and abandoned children around the world. And of the 153 million, many suffer from abuse, neglect, or exploitation—a reality that no child should experience. The Tim Tebow Foundation provides for the physical and spiritual care of children who have been left homeless or abandoned, as well as resources to create strong families and adoption assistance, all to protect children from these vulnerabilities and give them hope for a secure future.
It is estimated that 16% of the world’s population lives with a disability. Considered some of the world’s most vulnerable people, they are often denied the same opportunities as their peers to feel valued as a part of not only the life of their local community but also in the life of the Church. In many countries around the globe, people with disabilities are viewed as a burden, worthless, or even cursed. However, God greatly loves and values these precious people and so does the Tim Tebow Foundation. In this love, TTF is on mission to change the narrative.
Even in today’s modern world, there are regions with significantly little access to quality medical care or, in even more places, an inability for families to afford it if it is available. Through strategic, official ministry partnerships, the foundation has helped build and operate medical facilities in the Philippines, Zimbabwe, and the Peruvian jungles. By partnering with pioneers in developing countries to provide spiritual and medical healing, the foundation is able to meet the needs of thousands of vulnerable people every year.
While statistics are hard to come by, is has been said that there are more than 40 million people around the world being trafficked and exploited through force, fraud, and coercion. Engaged in the global fight against human trafficking and child exploitation, the Tim Tebow foundation is committed to catalyzing awareness and prevention, to enabling the rescue of victims, and to providing restorative care to survivors.
