Mission: We believe in the fundamental right of all children to have the security and love of a family. We resolve to facilitate adoptions of special needs, older and sibling children by providing financial grants to special waiting children; to actively seek out healthy and happy families who can offer love and support to special needs children; to raise public awareness of the need for healthy homes for special needs, older and sibling children and to raise public awareness of the unique joys of parenting a special child. We dedicate our work to improving the quality of life for all God's children, especially those who wait in institutions or orphanages, live in extreme poverty or under the duress of slavery, abuse or war; and we seek, create and support humanitarian programs which accomplish these goals and extend all efforts to champion and campaign for children's rights regardless of race, religion, or country of origin.
Results: As of April 1st, 2014, Brittany's Hope has helped united 667 special children from around the world with loving families in the United States. Every year, our Orphan Care programs nourish, clothe, shelter and educate over 1,400 children and provide them with the fundamentals that break the cycle of poverty and grants them control of their own future.
Target demographics: abandoned children live healthy and happy lives.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 102 special children come home to loving families and thousands more by providing food, clean water, shelter, clothing and an education
Geographic areas served: Viet Nam, Ethiopia, Kenya and around the world
Programs: Brittany's Hope Foundation recognizes that for every child who finds a loving family, there are many more who are left behind. Brittany's Hope works to improve the quality of life for those children. We build and repair orphanages and living centers worldwide. We develop and implement nutrition programs to deliver protein-rich food to undernourished children. We provide livestock and crop plantings to initiate far-reaching self-sustainable efforts within impoverished orphanages. Our Brittany's Cribs project provides cribs for children who spend their days in broken cribs without mattresses or blankets. The Emily Cane Project gives canes, mobility instruction, and independence to the blind. By providing an education, through college or vocational school, we break the cycle of poverty and empower young adults to take control of their own future. Our work is possible because of generous personal and corporate donations.

My husband and I recently received a matching seedling grant from Brittany's Hope and it was a great help to us in the final steps of our adoption of four sisters from Costa Rica. They were really great in helping us get all the administrative work done to qualify for the grant.

Brittany's Hope Foundation provided my family resources needed to adopt an older child with serious disabilities to have a forever family through adoption. Brittany's Hope Foundation is a wonderful organization. Thank you Brittany's Hope.

Brittany's Hope was one of the very first fundraisers we used to help our international adoption. The staff was very responsive and courteous to all of inquires pre and post funding of our grant. The Brittany's Hope Grant really was a God send when we needed it most. This grant helped our family more than we can express in this review.
Thank You and God Bless Brittany's Hope

When my husband and I learned that our international adoption from China would be fast tracked we panicked. Though thus far we had financed our own adoption through savings and creative fundraising in our community we were suddenly looking at traveling in a matter of weeks, rather than months. Our agency recommended we apply to Brittany's Hope Foundation Seedling Grant and we were so glad we did! Brittany's Hope walked us through every step of the fundraising process and together we raised the necessary funds to bring our son home. What we really loved about Brittany's Hope is unlike other granting organizations they play it forward. The funds we raised will help another family bring their son or daughter home to their forever family. Truly the greatest gift there is.

We started our adoption journey August of 2013 through Building Blocks in Medina Ohio, and Children's house international in Washington, we found our son and finished the home study as well as all the paperwork. I never thought we could do such a big dream! But God sent a positive letter stating we received a grant with Brittany's Hope and it made us so happy knowing God was watching over us and He would take care of us every step. Big thank you to all involved with help us bring our son home...this donation was a big step to our airplane tickets to flight and pick up our son. Thank you again.

Brittany's Hope was a huge help in the adoption of our second child from Ethiopia. They couldn't have been more supportive and the Seedling Gift Program matched donations, helping to offset our significant travel costs. Our family appreciates all that they were able to do for us during this difficult process. I'd highly recommend them to anyone wanting to help adoptive families.

Brittany's Hope is the most incredible grant organization. We have three adopted children and were blessed with a grant for our last adoption- and hands down, Brittany's Hope was the most fantastic organization that we had the pleasure of working with during all of our adoptions. What sets them apart is their personal attention to your family. Not only did the staff know our adoptive daughter's name, but they knew our entire family. They took time to care for us, to reach out to us, and to encourage us in our wait to bring her home. Their personal service is just a small window into the BIG BIG hearts of the people at Brittany's Hope!

Most recently, our already large family began the adoption process to bring home special needs twins from China. Our budget being already stretched, we were concerned about how to finance this adoption. We began holding fundraisers and such, but we were still short on our funding. At the prompting of our agency, we applied for a Brittany's Hope adoption grant. Brittany's Hope is a unique organization, in that they have a seedling program, so money we raised was used to support other families who were closer to traveling. And then when our time came to travel, the money we raised was matched, by this amazing agency. Communications with this agency were excellent. The staff I met and talked to were very professional and courteous. I am very, very impressed with this agency, and cannot tell you how much we appreciated their assistance. Our boys are now HOME! In part, due to the grant assistance from Brittany's Hope!!!
