Our Mission

Our Vision: Creating Better Environments and Brighter Futures for Children Without Families

Mission Statement

The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach serves vulnerable children of the world by:

  1. Assisting orphanages in providing quality care for children in residence
  2. Advocating for adoption of older children through hosting programs
  3. Offering opportunities for others to give their “sacred portion” out of love and obedience (Deuteronomy 26: 11, 12 & 14)
  4. Seeking families for children through adoption, domestically and internationally

"And you...shall rejoice in all the good which the Lord your God has given you and your household. And you...shall say before the Lord you God, I have removed the sacred portion from my house, and have given it to... the orphan according to all thy commandments which thou hast commanded me... I have listened to the voice of the Lord my God."

Deuteronomy 26:11-14

Our Founding

In the Bible, God makes provision for orphaned and abandoned children. In the Old Testament, His people gave from their resources a special offering for orphans, widows, and others who had no portion or inheritance. Founded on this principle, The Sacred Portion Children's Outreach is a non-profit organization dedicated to children who are without homes and families.

Our Invitation

There are many children around the world who are in need of a loving family of their own. The countless number of orphans is staggering. It is our desire that institutionalized children do not languish, but are provided with the nurturing care and developmental opportunities they require for learning and thriving. 

Yet, orphanages—no matter how good—are no substitute for families. Every child should have a family to guide them through growing up. Naturally, it should be their family of birth who provides this backdrop of love and care. We support measures to help families stay intact; when this is not possible, we seek to provide for a child's future through adoption.

Our desire is to give hope to the children we serve. We hope that, ultimately, they will come to know the personal, loving God who cares for them.

The Sacred Portion Children's Outreach extends an invitation for others to give their own "sacred portion" out of obedience to God and love for the world’s children. Manners of giving include sponsorship, prayer, donations, volunteering—and, for some, bringing a child into their family.

Whatever the portion, a gift toward a child without a family is considered sacred, holding a place of honor before God.

Our Services and Credentials

Providing Hague-accredited, Christian Adoption Services


Our agency is a faith-based, state-licensed, and Hague-accredited child placing agency conducting international and domestic adoption home studies and post-adoption supervision for families residing in the state of Montana. We have inter-country adoptive placement programs with the Philippines and with Colombia for families residing in any state.

The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach is the only Hague-accredited adoption agency in Montana. Hague accreditation affirms that we adhere to the Hague Adoption Convention’s standards of ethical practice for the protection of children and families—a treaty of which the United States and around 100 other world countries are signatory.

Intercountry Adoption

Our agency is authorized by the National Authority for Child Care in the Philippines (formerly Intercountry Adoption Board), as well as by Instituto Colombiano de Bienestar Familiar in Colombia, to place children from these respective countries to families across the United States. See Philippines Program. See Colombia Program.

We conduct home studies for many other international adoption programs for Montana families.

Domestic Adoption

The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach is licensed by the State of Montana to place children born in Montana, and also to conduct home studies for Montana families adopting domestically from elsewhere in the United States. We can work with Montana birth parents to find an adoptive family for their newborn child—and are always honored to do so!

Presently, we do not have a domestic placement program that accepts waiting adoptive families.

Rehoboth Sampaloc Ministries

Our agency continues to partner with Rehoboth Sampaloc Ministries in the Philippines, as we have since 1998, as the conduit for a major part of their child sponsorship and operating funds and as the organizer of work teams who periodically travel to build; teach; and encourage our friends there. In the past, other early childhood development programs have been established in the Philippines, China, and the United States.

Orphan care was the focus of our ministry’s beginning and is still at the heart of all that we do.

Providing Care and Education to Children Without Families

Our Staff

Corina Paszkiet

Executive Director

Raised in Sheridan, Wyoming, Corina and her husband John have called Bozeman, Montana, home since 2000. Corina graduated from Montana State University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She loves the beautiful region around Bozeman, where outdoor opportunities such as skiing and hiking are so abundant.

Corina, our Executive Director, has always had a heart for adoption. With a great number of adoptions within her family of origin, she knew early on that she not only wanted to adopt but also desired to work with the adoption community. Corina firmly believes that God builds families very specifically. When they were diagnosed with infertility, it was clear that their route to a family would be through adoption. She and her husband welcomed their son through domestic adoption in 2012 and their daughter in 2014. Corina will tell you that one of the best parts of the process was The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach, completing their home studies.

Corina and her husband jointly home-school their two children and love the freedom this gives for traveling and exploring the world. She works closely with her church and other community non-profits. She loves being part of building families through adoption and supporting adoptive families—and feels blessed that God has given her this phenomenal opportunity!

Mikah Zimmerle

Social Worker

Mikah Zimmerle is a new social worker at The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach and a recent resident of Bozeman. She graduated with her Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Texas in 2022 and moved to Bozeman later the same year. Mikah’s passion for adoption and international orphan care is deeply rooted, beginning with the international adoption of her younger brother in 2013. Mikah’s experience with adoption and the care of at-risk children includes her familial experience with adoption as well as working in foster care, working with an emergency foster shelter in Texas, and working overseas with an international ministry focused on special needs orphanages in Central Asia.

Mikah believes that one of the most powerful acts of worship is to show God’s love to children in need—as seen in James 1:27. She believes that adoption is a uniquely beautiful, powerful display of the gospel of Jesus Christ and of God’s heartbeat that every child be loved and cherished. Mikah is honored to be part of children’s homecoming stories through our agency. She is filled with joy to be able to professionally and prayerfully support the families going through their adoption process and the children they are bringing home!

Renée Jackson

Adoption Programs Coordinator

Renée is a Montana native, happily settled here. She studied Christian Education, became certified as a Natural Foods Chef, and has spent the past years working for several small businesses and households in southwest Montana. Renée came to The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach in 2020 to be the writer of home studies (and later, an adoption program assistant). While her previous writing has centered on culinary education, two of Renée’s other passions are children and international cultures—thus her communication for our adoption agency is a great fit. 

Renée has had some prior experience with adoptive families and is thankful for the rewarding opportunity of assisting clients of The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach. She is glad to be on a team working diligently to bring children into welcoming families! She loves considering the beautiful people and places that God has made in every corner of the earth. Renée likes to pray for each family for whom she writes home studies and corresponds. When not writing or cooking, Renée enjoys the outdoors, hospitality, and traveling with her husband.

Jan Druckenmiller

Founder, Treasurer

Jan Druckenmiller was the Executive Director of The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach from 1998 to 2022 when she stepped down in order to partially retire. Jan is still involved as the much-respected wealth of knowledge and vision behind our agency. Jan's work on behalf of orphans has been consuming at both professional and personal levels. She is the mother of one biological son and five adopted daughters.

Jan and her husband Craig directed an early childhood development program for 22 years before directing their attention toward another population of children—those without families. To this end, in 1998, Jan and Craig founded The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach—a non-profit ministry to orphaned and abandoned children. They began traveling to the Philippines and becoming involved with several orphanages, helping to construct buildings as well as to start onsite preschool programs. Jan marvels at God answering her heart’s desire to use her child development background in orphanage settings—one being the Rehoboth Children’s Home, part of Rehoboth Sampaloc Ministries.  

In 2006, The Sacred Portion Children's Outreach became licensed as a child-placing agency with the State of Montana. The agency was granted Hague accreditation in 2012. The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach continues Jan’s hope of “creating better environments and brighter futures for children without families”—through orphan care, adoption services, support, and more.

Casey Dail

Social Worker Supervisor

Casey Dail is new to Bozeman, Montana and found it an answer to prayer to receive the opportunity to work with The Sacred Portion Children's Outreach. She graduated with a Bachelors in Science for Early Childhood Development and later earned her Master's degree in the science of counseling at Divine Mercy University. Previously, a mental health counselor who specializes in childhood trauma and family dynamics, she is excited to be able to play an active role in working closely with families who want to learn how to realistically provide a healing home for the children they receive to care for.

Casey has been a foster parent to four children, and it has truly been one of the most beautiful gifts she has received in her life. Casey's heart for foster and adoptive children expanded after she worked with children and teens institutionalized due to a lack of foster parents. They were beautiful and unique kids, but most of them did not know they were lovable, as frequent sentiments were communicated such as, "I must not be lovable or good because no one wants me." Casey saw how important it is to impart the truth that God reveals Himself as a foster father as written in Hosea 11, "when Israel was a child, I loved him...It was I who taught Ephraim to walk, who took them in my arms, but they did not know that I cared for them. I drew them with human cords, with bands of love; I fostered them like those who raise an infant to their cheeks; I bent down to feed them.” She wants all children to know we do not belong to God temporarily, but forever, as God goes further to express something no other god has claimed, "I am His and He is mine" (Song of Songs, 6:3). For Saint Paul says we are His adopted sons and daughters and that, "you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received a spirit of adoption, through which we cry, 'Abba, Father!'" (Romans 8:15). Casey is committed to helping children without a present and nurturing mother or father figure understand this truth and loves working with the families who receive and answer this call to love in a way that deeply mirrors how fully God loves us.

Charter of Faith

The Sacred Portion Children's Outreach is a Montana non-profit corporation formed for religious purposes with a specific mission to carry out the admonition set forth in Deuteronomy 26:11, 12 & 14. This Charter of Faith sets forth the religious basis for our organization's purpose.

1. We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.
We look to the Scriptures as the blueprint for the scope and purpose of our lives. James 1:27 states, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Scripture contains thirty references alone regarding those whom the Bible calls the fatherless, a clear revelation of God's heart for orphans. Thus, the mission of The Sacred Portion Children's Outreach has the best interest of children as its core value and has embraced the care of orphans as its mission, with a full assurance of its biblical basis in being the unequivocal will of God. In keeping with the best interest of children, we believe the term "marriage" has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Genesis 1:26-27). Further, we believe that it is God's design that children should be raised by a mother and father who are married to each other in a covenant relationship before God.

2. We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
God is sovereign over His universe. Thus, we regard nothing as our own, but rather see ourselves as stewards of what God has entrusted to us. The Sacred Portion Children's Outreach is God's organization. He is at work in the world and we look for open doors and paths leading us to where we might join Him in His work. He will make of this organization what He will and we seek to be responsive to His molding of it.

3. We believe that Jesus is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.
Jesus reveals to us the character of God through His life and His words as recorded in Scripture. We see Him reaching out to those who were sick or hurting. Through The Sacred Portion Children's Outreach, we seek to follow the example of Christ in reaching out to those children who desperately need our help.

4. That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.
We realize that, in and of ourselves, we will be ineffectual in this ministry. Thus, we rely on the power and leading of the Holy Spirit to accomplish the tasks set before us. For what we do accomplish we will give all credit to the Lord.

5. We believe that man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
We see the suffering of orphans as one outcome of a fallen world. We do not blame God for this suffering, but rather look to the Holy Spirit to rejuvenate the remnant of goodness within us and to spur us on in His power to lessen that suffering. Through change wrought in our own hearts by His Spirit, we become the heart of God extended to the needy children of the world.

6. We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and, thus, become children of God.
It is our aim to see that children have the basic necessities of life, proper medical care and an education to prepare them for the future. Above all, our desire is to give them an awareness of the extent of God's love for them and His desire to redeem them as His children through the sacrifice of Christ.

7. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting separation from His presence.
The greatest gift that we can give to children is a hope that transcends whatever their present life circumstances might be--a hope of eternal communion with the God of all comfort and the Father of us all.

Hague Accreditation

Accreditation by IAAME


The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach is the only adoption agency in the state of Montana that is Hague-accredited and able to offer services to families who need a Hague-accredited agency.

As explained further by the U.S. Department of State, The Hague Convention on the Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption, concluded at The Hague, The Netherlands in 1993 and entered into force in the United States in 2008, is an international agreement that applies to adoptions by U.S. citizens of children resident in any country outside of the United States that is signatory to the same agreement.  

For those countries that permit foreign adoptions of their children, some have ratified the Hague Convention and others have not. Hague Convention adoption programs offer greater protection for the adopting parents and for the children being adopted. The Sacred Portion Children's Outreach became Hague-accredited in January of 2012. This accreditation came as the result of a nine-month self-study process and a site review by the Council on Accreditation.

A re-accreditation process is repeated every four years. The Sacred Portion Children’s Outreach completed this process in 2015, then again in 2020 with a new accrediting agency chosen by the U.S. Department of State—the Intercountry Adoption Accreditation and Maintenance Entity (IAAME). We had to demonstrate that, as an agency, we meet strict standards of ethical practice for the protection of children and families. Our current Hague accreditation is valid until January of 2028.

Public Comment Opportunity

The Intercountry Adoption Accreditation and Maintenance Entity (IAAME), one of two national accrediting agencies approved by the U.S. Department of State to conduct Hague accreditation and approval reviews, invites the public to provide comment on adoption service providers who are seeking Hague accreditation or seeking approval or renewal of Hague accreditation. You may provide a comment here.
