Mission: 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.
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.

100% of your donation is directly given to children who need it. Within the various programs at Brittany's Hope, all the donations, love and support are given to children who have not met their forever families and that need help from loving people across the world. I feel fortunate to work with an organization who is dedicated to meeting the needs of special needs children.

I have been involved in Brittany's Hope Foundation for over 7 years now. In beginning to volunteer with this tremendous foundation, working with the dedicated staff, board members, and children we serve I became extremely rooted and dedicated to the cause. I have served many roles over the years with the foundation- board member, etc. BHF has an extreme passion for adding the less fortunate and operates like no other organizations I know- 100% funding to the cause. My greatest joys of my time working with the organization have been working firsthand with the improvised children we serve in the country of Vietnam- it has changed my life forever.

I wish to involve more people and introduce our work to the masses- we have some very special at Brittany's Hope Foundation and it should be shared and know; you will like what you see.

I am both a board member and a recipient parent. I have had and continue to have positive experiences with Brittany's Hope. Without this foundation our family would not include our daughter. The support of this foundatin allowed us to adopt a beautiful 3 year old who has blossomed into an active, bright, loving 8 year old. The staff and fellow board members are very dedicated to the families and children that are served. It is wonderful to see that positive changes can be made in the world, especially for children.

As an adoptee and local resident of the Elizabethtown area, I was thrilled to learn of an organization that is a reputable, international granting foundation for children all over the world. The foundation enables families from across the country to adopt children with special needs. It is also a wonderful philanthropic organization providing stability to many children in diverse countries. We are fortunate to have them in Central Pennsylvania.
