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.
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
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.

Reviews for Brittany's Hope Foundation
Brittany's Hope is an incredible nonprofit organization! They helped us bring home our adopted son from Bulgaria. What a wonderful thing to give children the hope of a family. This organization was extremely easy to work with and helpful throughout the entire process. We recommend them highly!
Brittany's Hope was a wonderful organization to work with. There were many adoption grant foundations we applied to, and many we never heard back from. However, Brittany's Hope exceeded our expectations in communicating with us. We were so incredibly blessed by their adoption grant. Both of our children have special needs and our medical bills last year were enormous. Had it not been for Brittany's Hope, it would've been difficult to have all of the finances to finalize our adoption. We are so grateful. And Paula, you were a joy to work with!
Brittany's Hope is a beautiful organization! They offered professional advice and provided timely financial assistance to our family as we neared the end of our fundraising efforts to bring home our son from Poland. They are so easy to work with and we would highly recommend them to other adoptive families. Thank you Brittany's Hope for helping us reach that last little bit we needed in order to bring our son home!
Brittany's Hope helped us bring our son home from China. We are thankful for all involved. We especially appreciated their communication with us.
We received an adoption grant from Brittany's Hope. Our experience with them was nothing but positive. So very kind and attentive. Went above and beyond just offering financial support. Excellent communication. Their heart and passion for adoption shines through brightly. Without the assistance of grants such as theirs, it simply would not have been possible for us to bring our precious daughter home where she belongs. I love the concept of "paying it forward" that their grant represents. Such a blessing to be able to help another family as well!
My husband and I always wanted to adopt. After we both graduated college and started our careers we launched out on our first amazing adoption adventure. In 2008 we applied with Holt International to adopt our first child. We were matched with our son in January of 2009 and brought him home June of 2009. He was the cutest 6 month old ever!!! In 2010 we applied again with Holt International for our second child. This process took much more time. It wasn't until December of 2011 that we were matched with our daughter, also born in Ethiopia. We brought her home in May of 2012. She was 14 months old. She was a very resilient little girl! In 2013 we applied again with Holt International and came very close to bringing home a waiting child from Ethiopia. But this wasn't meant to be. In January of 2015 Rhonda found a sweet waiting child on Holt's Korea page. In just 3 short weeks our family was matched with a 14 month old girl with multiple medical needs. We arrived home with her December 24th, 2015. She was 26 months old. She is the perfect addition to our family! Along this last adoption journey we had friends and family approach us asking if there was anyway they could give toward our adoption fees. We were blown away by this! We did no fundraising at all for the first two adoptions and so this was unknown territory for us. We talked with Holt International about this. They mentioned your matching grant. We then found you online and inquired. The information was clear and concise on how the process would play out. Your staff is always quick to respond via email and very helpful. We are so thankful that your foundation exists. It was such a relief to point our friends and family to your website and they could give what they were comfortable with in the comfort of their homes. We are still shocked that we made our goal! International adoption is very expensive, but we know now to not let that stop us! Thank you so much for helping our family bring home our daughter.
Brittany's Hope was such a blessing during our adoption process. The grant we received helped relieve some of the burden of adoption expenses. We are so thankful for their help and the vital role they played in helping bring our precious little one home. Penny has been the perfect addition to our family and we can't imagine life without her.
Brittany's Hope was an amazing organization and we will be forever grateful for their help in bringing our daughter home! The grant process from start to finish was very smooth, straightforward, and such a blessing! Our daughter is beyond amazing and we would not have her home with us without the help of the Brittany's Hope grant. We will recommend this amazing organization to every adoptive family that we know so that they can bring more orphans home! Thank you Brittany's Hope for blessing our family, helping the world, and being such an amazing influence in the life of orphans!
Some time ago, my wife and I traveled overseas on a mission's trip and there in Southeast Asia we saw the needs of many homeless children firsthand. This was hard to see by itself, but then we began to realize that not only were many of the children homeless, many were also abandoned.
This knowledge broke our hearts and as a result of seeing this, God began the process of working in our lives, calling us to be more actively involved in caring for the orphans of the world.
Finally, after much prayer and deliberation our family made the decision to adopt, to open our home to a little boy and to provide him with the love and nurture he needs to flourish in life.
However the cost of adoption was more than we could handle on our own. As a result, we started applying to various foundations to seek their assistance. Brittany's Hope was one of those and they provided a generous financial grant to help us complete our adoption.
I cannot say enough good things about them. Brittany's Hope is a wonderful, caring foundation that helped us when it mattered and for that we are so thankful! They showed genuine concern and worked hard to help us adopt. Thanks Brittany's Hope!!!
Brittany's Hope Foundation helped our family to bring our son home. By providing the opportunity to receive a generous matching grant, we were able to fund raise more efficiently. The staff was easy to work with and the foundation truly cares for the family and children that it benefits.
