Mike and his wife Mandy Gallagher have six children, three adopted (one domestically, two from Uganda) with various special needs. Since co-founding 1MILLIONHOME, their mission is to provide permanent families to orphaned children, helping separated children to be healed and reunited with biological family, and abandoned or abused children to be adopted by loving adoptive family. Mike has served the Leadership Council of Christian Alliance For Orphans (CAFO), the International Advisory Board of University of the Nations (YWAM). Mike has a private equity background and currently owns and serves as Chairman of Educational Outfitters Group.
1MILLIONHOME accelerates the movement of orphaned children into permanent, loving families. Through radical collaboration with leading practitioners of family-based care, we enhance and scale open-source solutions in care reform. Our core programs transform orphanages away from housing the same kids indefinitely, and toward rehabilitating and reuniting new kids every quarter. By doing so, every 1 orphanage we help transform can help hundreds of children living as orphans to get safely home. As hundreds, then thousands of orphanages fully implement our solutions, hundreds of thousands of children will get out of orphanages, off the streets, and permanently home. Co-founded by adoptive parents of children with special needs bringing backgrounds in private equity, business ownership, education and global missions.
