Issues: Children & Youth

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.

We are very thankful for Brittany's Hope Foundation! We received a matching grant which helped us bring our son home from China. We really appreciated the transparency of the organization. The information package we received in the mail and the on-line information was very helpful. It was wonderful to have assistance throughout the process. Our contact was friendly, caring and prompt. We support the mission of Brittany's Hope and are so glad to be a part of their family now!!

We adopted the first time in 2008. During our adoption trip, we saw the little boy in person that we'd seen in pictures. We started praying for him to find a family - little did we know that this little boy was to become our son. We began the process of adopting in in November of 2012. Since our son is from the same orphanage as our daughter, we decided to have our daughter travel with us. What an amazing experience for her and us.
Our family consists of 2 biological sons (15 and 12) and our 2 adopted children (both 8). We rely on Christ and know that he will answer prayers. We prayed that he would help us fund this adoption and He did. We were elated to learn that we would receive this grant. It was definitely an answer to prayer.
Thank you so much for choosing our family to be part of the Brittany's Hope Foundation family. We were overjoyed and humbled to receive this. It truly meant everything to us and helped us finance the adoption trip. Just look at the smile on our son's face and know he is so worth it! Thank you for being a part of our family and allowing us to be part of yours.

May God continue to Bless your foundation. God Bless, The Long's

Brittany's Hope Foundation has been the most caring, thorough, and sincere non-profit we have had the blessing of working with during our time adopting. We have been through three adoptions in the past 4 years, and by far, the easiest to work with has been Brittany's Hope. Their structure is simple, requirements are clearly spelled out, their interface is modern and neat, and most important of all, we felt that Brittany's Hope actually knew what we were going through, and empathized with us both during the adoption process, as well as afterward. They were very thoughtful in their approach to getting us information, and keeping in touch with us as we worked through the paperwork, with gentle reminders when something was left undone, and upon completion of our latest adoption, they were very understanding and non-intrusive in the post-adoption requirements completion. Thank you, Brittany'sHope for the fantastic blessing that you are!

Our family received an adoption grant from Brittany's Hope in the form of a matching grant. We adopted a 3 year old special needs boy from Eastern Europe in Jan 2014. Brittany's Hope is a wonderful program. Thank you Brittany's Hope for your matching grant.

Brittany’s Hope Foundation will forever be important to our family. The last month before we traveled to China to adopt our daughter, we still needed to raise funds to cover our in-country expenses and travel expenses. Brittany’s Hope issued us a generous grant that made it possible for us to travel to China to adopt our daughter without the worry of incurring a substantial debt. This is the only grant we received that provided a detailed packet of information to guide grant recipients through each step of the grant process. The instructions were well organized and easy to follow. I would highly recommend this organization to anyone seeking a matching grant to adopt a child with special health care needs.

Without the Seedling Grant our families calling to adopt would not have been able to become a reality. God is so good!! Thank you so much for your commitment to partner with families to help provide an orphan with a forever family. We are so thankful for your efforts. Miles, who is 3 1/2 from Bulgaria now knows the love of a family, the bond of a brother and a place to call his very own. Miles was meant for us and we were made just for him! Thank you so much for making us a family of four! God Bless!!

We recently returned home with our 2 year old son from Ethiopia who was diagnosed with "special needs". Our nearest children's hospital is 2 hours away. The expenses from doctor visits and travel can quickly add up, especially and the heels of recent adoption expenses. The grant from Brittany's Hope Foundation was so essential in helping to meet our needs those first weeks home. With the added expenses that a "special needs" adoption can entail, Brittany's Hope is helping to ease some of the financial burden placed on a family blessed with the adoption of a special needs child or children. We are so thankful that Brittany's Hope is encouraging families to take on these challenges through their support.

I recently returned from China with our new 4 year old daughter, Teagen. Teagen is a happy and healthy girl who waited 4 years for a family due to extensive birthmarks. Brittany's Hope understand the challenges facing children with special needs and provides grants to help make these adoptions possible. We are grateful to be the recipient of such a grant and proud that this organization helps unite children with their forever families.
