We are so grateful for you, our donor family, for helping us bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. Together, we fight for the Most Vulnerable People in the world—the MVP—through our work in our four main focuses in Profound Medical Needs, Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation, Orphan Care and Prevention, and Special Needs Ministry. 

Through the faithfulness of our giving family, the abundance of God's blessings, and the work of our incredible partners, we were able to dive deeper and fight harder for the Most Vulnerable People around the world this year. We are in awe of your generosity and how God has worked through all four of our ministries!

Below are several key highlights from this past year of the life change we witnessed, thanks to His goodness and your generosity.  As you read these highlights, we hope you feel the impact of your giving and the transformative life change you make possible. For all the ways TTF is impacting lives, please visit our stories section.

Profound Medical Needs Ministry

Child getting ready for spine surgery
  • We have been able to come alongside CURE International to launch the Tebow Spine Center in Ethiopia! CURE International estimates there are 50,000 children who are in danger of dying prematurely due to a rare form of scoliosis. Without care for these children, their conditions will progressively worsen, and life expectancy will be shortened. On top of the physical suffering, these children oftentimes also suffer from rejection, stigmatization, neglect, and abuse. The treatments provided through this center, along with spiritual care, will give each of these children a chance at a longer, healthier life. We believe this center truly helps us take a significant stride towards addressing the urgent need for specialized pediatric care in Ethiopia. 
  • In the last year, 1,994 surgeries have been performed at the CURE Hospital for Children in the Philippines. In partnership with CURE International, these life-changing surgeries demonstrate the love of Jesus to children who are in desperate need of orthopedic and reconstructive surgeries. There, children receive world-class comprehensive, transformational care and spiritual healing. In 2023, through Tebow CURE, we also witnessed 2,644 men, women, and children make decisions for Christ. 
  • Alongside CURE International, we are able to provide life-changing orthopedic surgeries for children in Zimbabwe who are in desperate need and otherwise could not afford care. In the last year, our giving family helped make 471 life-changing surgeries possible. Through the Tebow Care Center, an extension of CURE Children's Hospital of Zimbabwe, we helped to almost triple the number of beds available for children recovering from these surgeries. This addition will allow for more surgeries to be performed, and, ultimately, for more children to receive healing.

  • The Tim Tebow Foundation's W15H program fulfills the dreams of children with life-threatening illnesses who wish to meet Tim Tebow. W15H experiences provide children with travel, accommodations, customized daily activities, dining reservations, gifts, and one-on-one time with Tim. In addition to official W15H experiences, Tim also connects with children and other individuals around the country through our W15H Brighter Days program. Our hope is that they would be reminded of God's love for them and the amazing plan He has for their lives. Since inception, more than 110 families have been provided an official W15H experience, and more than 1,000 Brighter Days have been granted. 

Anti-Human Trafficking and Exploitation Ministry 

Law enforcement and military training
  • From January to September of this year, 5,940 law enforcement were trained across the globe to identify and respond to crime associated with human trafficking and child exploitation. Alongside several of our ministry partners, we are able to train more law enforcement and military around the world.  
  • This year, 55 children who are survivors of online child exploitation, were served through Compassionate Hope Tebow Village of Hope at both campuses in the Philippines. Construction recently started on a new Compassionate Hope Tebow Village of Hope located near Bangkok, Thailand. The first two homes there will have the capacity to serve up to 32 children who are in need of hope and healing. 
Survivors of human trafficking get baptized
  • Her Song, our domestic survivor care ministry, provided 5,725 safe nights to survivors of human trafficking. Through their work, we also witnessed an amazing 14 professions of faith in the last year. Praise God! Her Song will continue serving survivors at safe homes in Jacksonville, FL, Columbus, OH, and Chattanooga, TN. 
  • With our partner, Operation Light Shine, we have been able to support the formation and launch of four new INTERCEPT Task Forces across the United States, including Florida, Virginia, and Maryland. From January to October of this year, 53 children were rescued across several of these locations, and 54 perpetrators were arrested. 
  • This summer, Homeland Security Investigations led the launch of “Operation Renewed Hope,” alongside Interpol, working together with the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and in partnership with the Tim Tebow Foundation. This successful 3-week surge operation was the first US-based, multi-national collaboration resulting in 311 probable identifications of previously unknown victims of child sexual abuse, and several confirmed victim rescues from active abuse. 

Orphan Care and Prevention Ministry

  • TTF’s Adoption Aid program assists families making the courageous decision to adopt children with special needs from all over the world. In partnership with Lifesong for Orphans and Show Hope, the foundation provides grants each month to help cover adoption costs and walk with them throughout their journey. This year, more than 60 families have received assistance to help bring their children home! 
  • Through TTF Impact Baby Rescue, we have partnered with Impact Africa to offer three baby rescue boxes and counseling centers to help prevent baby abandonment. Together, we currently have three TTF Promise Homes, which provide safety, comprehensive holistic care, and the opportunity for each baby to find a forever family. This year, 24 babies were adopted and nearly 115,000 women have been given hope through services like education and counseling.
Girls at House of Hope Ethiopia
  • Along with our partner All God’s Children International, and the TTF House of Hope in Ethiopia, 45 girls were reunified with their families, and 47 girls were served at the home from October 2022 to October 2023. This home is a safe space, offering trauma-informed care for girls separated from their families.  In 2024, we are excited to be opening a second House of Hope in Colombia! This home will serve girls who have aged out of the child welfare system. 
  • In partnership with Lifesong for Orphans, we provide an evacuation center for Ukrainian refugees through the Lifesong Tebow Care Center in Poland. This year, 477 orphans and highly vulnerable people were served through the care center and day programs! They were given access to trauma care and counseling, legal assistance to obtain identification, and support to help them thrive in a different country. 
  • In partnership with Back2Back Ministries, we help families break the cycle of generational poverty by strengthening the family unit through the Twelve Stones Community Center, a state-of-the-art multi-resource center in Mazatlán, Mexico. At the center this year, 100 children were served and provided care, mentorship, and resources, including comprehensive care like therapies, sensory rooms, parenting classes, and medical clinics. 

Special Needs Ministry

  • Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 14 and older that has reached 56 different countries. This year, Night to Shine reached the most countries ever in a single year with 622 churches hosting in 46 different countries and 48 states! More than 75,000 honored guests attended and were celebrated by more than 120,000 volunteers. And on February 9, 2024, we look forward to celebrating the 10-Year Anniversary of Night to Shine! 
  • Rising Light Ridge, a ministry of the Tim Tebow Foundation, will be a barrier-free ministry campus where all are celebrated as God’s children and His image-bearers. When fully built, Rising Light Ridge will be a year-round campus serving all abilities and backgrounds while delivering a variety of programs. This year, Rising Light Ridge directly impacted more than 180 individuals and delivered significant growth in program offerings and the total number of lives touched. Rising Light Ridge operated a six-week summer day camp this year with 39 individual campers. In addition to the campers, RLR welcomed 13 volunteers and 10 staff members. 
  • Alongside Ekisa Ministries, we have been able to help change the narrative of children with disabilities in Uganda. Through Ekisa Tebow Community Care Center, children receive physical and occupational therapy and a community to lean on for times of encouragement, learning, and discipleship.⁣⁣⁣ Over the past year, 82 children and families have been served at the center. Currently, 54 children and families are being served on a regular basis.

  • Tebow Down Guatemala, a ministry of the Tim Tebow Foundation, provides holistic education and resources to children with developmental disabilities in Guatemala and their families. By strengthening our impact through partnership, Tebow Down Guatemala has been able to expand to four locations across the country. More than 450 children and families currently receive education and therapy. 
We will continue to pursue the vision of finding, reaching, and fighting for the Most Vulnerable People in every country worldwide, while sharing with them about the God who created them in His own image and who loves them with a perfect and lasting love!
