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.

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!
Brittany's Hope Foundation is full of compassionate and caring individuals. They really value your family and invest not only financially in your adoption process but also emotionally. We are beyond blessed to say Brittany's Hope is part of our family forever now . Thank you for loving us, and our sweet blessing from China, as your own! -- The Watson Family
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!!!
We were so very blessed to receive an adoption grant through Brittany's Hope! They are a wonderful organization that helps to make the financial portion of an adoption possible for families. They were wonderful to work with and helped us with our fundraising portion of the grant. They were so encouraging every step of the way, and even on the weeks that we had no progress in our fundraising efforts, they still sent us encouraging words to keep working hard and moving forward. The grant we received from Brittany's Hope was a huge blessing to us financially! We feel very grateful for their help and for the wonderful service they offer the adoption community.
We have been so blessed by Brittany's Hope through our recent adoption process. They were so helpful and have a wonderful program to help adoptive families. We love that the money we raised with help other families be able to adopt. The staff we worked with was encouraging, understanding and very professional. They were also very prompt in replying to questions. We are so thankful to be one of the many families to benefit from the program. We are so thankful that they helped us in the adoption of our son!
Brittany's Hope is a wonderful non-profit organization that provides matching grants to families adopting a special needs child from another country. Their application is very simple and they provide excellent support throughout the fundraising process. They work through your adoption agency and the money is released directly to your agency once the child is home with you. We were awarded a grant early in our process and quickly raised the funds needed for the matching portion. It took two years for our adoption to finalize but when we came home the money was waiting for us. This was very helpful for us to quickly pay off the expenses from the travel. We are extremely grateful to Brittany's hope.
We really appreciated Brittany's Hope. They made it so easy to fundraise. It's a very positive, uplifting, unique opportunity.
