Recognizing the fundamental rights of all children, we empower families and communities to make real and lasting changes in the lives of orphans and at-risk children through international special needs adoption grants and humanitarian initiatives.


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


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

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

We were blessed with a matching grant from Brittany's Hope that helped us bring our daughter home from China! Don't let the large financial cost stop you from adopting, there is help! The Foundation was clear in their requirements and quick to release funds when notified. They are bringing families together and providing a way for children to have life changing opportunities.

Brittany's Hope is a terrific foundation that has helped so many orphans join forever families! Brittany's Hope is changing lives and our family is forever grateful for all that they have done to help three of our children with special needs born in China come home to our family! Our experiences have been nothing but professional and positive and we'd recommend this foundation in a heartbeat to adoptive families using the agencies Brittany's Hope partners with.

Brittany's Hope Foundation has allowed us to bring our newly adopted children home much drier from financial worry than otherwise, and enabled us to insure their medical needs are immediately attended to. Our adoptive children are both special needs girls from China. Without the assistance of Brittan's Hope we would have borrowed a significant sum to complete the adoptions. The process was very fair and very easy to navigate. The staff are professional and incredible caring. Thank you again for all your assistance. It is making a very big difference!

Our family has been blessed with Brittany's. On top of their financial help, they were always patient and considerate during the good, bad, short and long days. They want adoptive families to succeed financially, emotionally and spiritually with the abundant resources they provide. It is evident that this organization's heart beats strongly for children. Thank you all who support Brittany's Hope!

At the end of 2012, Russia enacted a ban forbidding Americans from adopting from Russia. Our family was one of those who were "caught in the middle," having already visited our future son once. To say that we were devastated that the process had come to an abrupt end would be a gross understatement.

Several months before, we had received a matching grant from Brittany's Hope for our adoption. When the foundation heard about our situation, they were quick to contact us to express their sympathy and offer encouragement. They authentically cared about us as people and as an adoptive family.

Fast forward to 2015. It was with great joy that we were able to welcome Estella into our family from Burundi, Africa. Brittany's Hope transferred our grant to this adoption, making it possible for us to travel and bring our daughter home.

The team at Brittany's Hope have been fabulous to work with. They truly have a heart for adoption and for families. We wholeheartedly recommend them as an organization who can assist with the costs, ups and downs of the adoption process.

We applied for an Adoption Grant from Brittany's Hope in order to help offset some of the expenses associated with the adoption of our daughter from China. From first contact through receipt of the grant funds we could not have been more pleased with the folks at Brittany's Hope. Every contact I had with them during the application and review process was met with a warm, cheerful and encouraging response and prompt action, it was a true pleasure every time we spoke. Now that we have completed our adoption and our daughter is here with us I have had the opportunity on several occasions to discuss with other families who are in the process of their own adoptions various grant programs and my first recommendation is always to contact Brittany's Hope as your first resource. We cannot thank the wonderful people working with this fine organization for all the outstanding work they are doing and the blessings they continue to bestow on adoptive families.
