The Left Behind Foundation was born of a desire among several friends to help some of the most impoverished and desperate orphaned children around the world. Co-Founder Billy Eldridge, was working across China and experienced first hand the struggles that rural orphans face on a daily basis. This placed the seed amongst Billy and his friends to make a collective effort to attacking the worldwide issue of left behind children. Whether it is displacement from war torn areas, the unexpected backlash of rural-urban migration or abusive parents, we will be there to give those left behind a vital lifeline.
With the combination of youthful energy and professional networks, we believe we have the best chance of creating a long-lasting and successful foundation that realistically can bring a vital lifeline to children around the globe, for generations to come.

Values. At the Left Behind Foundation, We hold ourselves accountable for using our resources responsibly, achieving measurable results, and being transparent with supporters, partners and, most of all, the children.
