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.

Brittany's Hope is a fantastic organization. They serve children in multiple ways in multiple places to help all different kinds of needs. They are amazingly efficient with funding and make a true difference in children's lives.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching the work they do in Vietnam through project at street children centers and orphanages.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make them bigger with more funding so they can help more children!

Brittany's Hope Foundation has a generous grant program that helps adoptive parents overcome the financial struggles in adopting a child with special needs. We've partnered with them for over 5 years. Through their assistance, children that were waiting years for a family were matched and permanently placed. We love working with their kind and dedicated staff. They are an amazing organization!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

finding homes for children abroad that have a medical need, are school-aged, or a part of a sibling group. They had a very generous grant of $10000 assigned to a young boy that was blind and waiting for over 5 years for a family. The large grant allowed the family to travel to the country and help the child transition to his new home.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not make changes. The have an efficient system in assigning designated monies to each of their partner agencies. They effectively communicate any changes or concerns that they have. Their original granting program was not working well, and made the decision to change it. It is working very well for our agency. More children and families are being served through their new process.

Brittany's Hope Foundation has touched so many special needs children and their families. One such child is Angelina (soon to be a ballerina) who was born in China with such weak lttle legs they could barely support her body. This didn't keep Angelina from beanding down and carrying for the children younger than herself. Daily she has waited to get news of a forever family. Because of Brittany's Hope amazing "play it forward" grants Angelina WILL get a chance to have a family and dance.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've worked with both grant families and Brittany's Hope directly. Their heart for children with the smallest voices is so strong it truly is amazing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

FInd a way to share their story with more poeple so that they'd have more funds to help more children!

I am a member of non-profit affiliate agency who works together with Brittany's Hope to provide grants for many qualified adoptive families who have hearts for special needs adoptions. I amazed at the warmth and professionalism of the staff that I work with. Brittany's Hope Seedling Gift program is an amazing grant program that utilizes adoption agency, recipient families and grant agency, to work together to achieve one goal - reuniting orphaned children with their forever families. What a joy and privilege it is to serve together with Brittany's Hope in achieving this goal.
