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.
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 Foundation has been a huge blessing for me and my newly adopted son, providing financial support for the adoption of my son. I am so grateful to Brittany's Hope because it gave me a special way for my friends & family to get involved personally in the adoption. They feel a special connection to him through donating towards the expenses of the adoption. Thank you for this gift at a time when we needed it the most!
We really appreciate the love and assistance Brittany's Hope gave our family in helping with the financial cost of bringing our son home from China this summer (2015)! Without the assistance of their grant program, we would have been lost in coming up with the money to complete his adoption. Our son came to us at 17 1/2 months old, unable to sit up on his own. Now, 3 weeks later, he is sitting, starting to crawl, attempting to stand and loving all the cuddles he's receiving in his forever family! Thank you Brittany's Hope!
Adopting is expensive! And we are so grateful for Brittany's Hope for coming alongside us as we made this huge investment to adopt three sisters from Bulgaria. Our girls were placed in an orphanage when they were 2, 4, and 6 years old. When they were 6, 8, & 10, they were placed in two separate foster homes for almost 2 years before we were able to adopt them. While we had tried to save for our adoption, our expenses were far greater than we had anticipated. Our grant from Brittany's Hope gave us a huge boost! It has been a big relief that we did not have to take out loans or have credit card debt as a result of our adoption. This leaves us less stressed and more able to love and nurture the girls instead of worrying about money.

I'm a single mother with two adopted daughters from China. In 2014, I felt inspired to adopt again but was a full-time graduate student at the time. The financial obligation was the only hurdle to adopting a lovely 9 year old boy who captured my heart with his smile and self-confident expression. The costs of an international adoption can be over $20,000! I committed to the adoption and I submitted an application to Brittany's Hope at the same time. Within weeks, I learned of being accepted into the Seedling Grant program, which gave me confidence and trust that, over the next year, I would be able to fundraise all needed funds. Receiving that first promise of support made a tremendous difference to my outlook on the huge task ahead. I applied for every adoption grant I was eligible for, and did receive some of them, but that first show of support was the most important because it carried me through the rest of the year. I also felt good sharing the story of BH and hopefully expanding the BH family of supporters. Thank you for all you do.
We were so blessed at the end of our journey to be blessed with this seedling grant.It is awesome that we were able to pay it forward while being blessed.This is an awesome grant program that truly cares for the family and is very simple to navigate the process.Thanks so much for your hard work towards helping families be united.
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.
