Lee and Wende were married in 1994 and chose to add two children to their family in 2014 via adoption.  Life has been a wonderful adventure, getting a front row seat to many wonders and miracles! It has been a blessing to be ‘mama’ and ‘daddy’ to children who are Orphans No More!

Lee and Wende have five children – Beth (31, married to Patrick), Ryan (16), Connor (13), Jason (13) and Hannah (11). The Bartolomeo's live in Arizona.

About US

Care 4 The Orphan Inc was founded by Lee Bartolomeo and his wife Wende after they felt they had to do something more about the orphan crisis. The Bartolomeo’s adopted their son Jason at 11 years old and their daughter Hannah at 8 years old in 2014 from China; however, they knew they had to do more about the millions of waiting children all over the globe that require so much care and still need a family to call their own. The needs of these children are great. Their greatest need is love, care & a family.


Our volunteers come from all walks of life, and put their individual experience and expertise to work for the greater good.

Over 140 Million Orphans Worldwide Today

There are over 140 Million orphans worldwide that require daily care. There is a great need for awareness and funding. With our volunteers, and financial support from individuals and businesses, we are moving forward to restore hope to orphans around the globe.

Care 4 The Orphan’s mission is simple: to engage people to care for orphans and reduce all barriers that would allow each precious child to have hope for a prosperous future and a family to call their very own.  We can get there by letting people know about the magnitude of the crisis and by joining together to give $1 A MONTH.  Proceeds will be used for nutrition programs, adoption grants, education, medical needs, and more in North America, Asia, Africa, and South America.

Our values are love, care, hope, compassion, justice and joy.
