Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Adoption, Children & Youth

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 May 1, 2020, Brittany's Hope has helped unite 1,384 special needs children from around the world with loving families in the United States. Every year, our Orphan Care programs nourish, clothe, shelter and educate over 3,000 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. We continue to offer financial grants, through our affiliate agencies, to American adoptive families looking to open their hearts and homes to adopt children with special needs through inter-country adoption.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 103 special children have 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 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 in Viet Nam, Kenya, & Ethiopia. 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. Brittany's Hope provides mattresses and blankets for children in the centers. 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 was so helpful throughout the entire process. Because of their ability to help families like mine I have been able to adopt my daughter which has been the greatest joy in my life. No matter the day or time they were able to answer all my questions and made sure I was on track with fundraising. I felt as if I was their only recipient because of all the attention they were able to give me.

We decided to adopt four children and although we were worried about the financial implications of this decision, Brittany's Hope came through at a time when we needed it to aid our travel expenses and help bring home our four little ones. We will forever be grateful for their aid and service.

We would like to thank Brittany's Hope for your part in helping us afford the expenses necessary to complete our adoption. Our son Harrison is a huge blessing to us and we could not have made it to the finish line without wonderful grant organizations like this. Adoption is a tough road and helping families financially afford it takes out so much of the stress. We love our son with all of our hearts and we are so thankful to finally be a family of three! We will spread the word to our adoption community about this organization. Thank you again.

As another nonprofit that works with adopted children, we are happy to support however we can in the endeavors of Brittany's Hope. We just participated in one of their main fundraisers for adoptions, and plan on doing it again next year.
It is only through the generous support of the communities, businesses, and private individuals that a nonprofit like Brittany's Hope can help those children and families in need.
Again, we look forward to doing this again to support.

Our family has had a desire to adopt a child with special needs that needs a family. We started the process in 2017 and we quickly matched with a little girl in China that had Down syndrome. When we were about 2 months away from traveling to get our daughter, she suddenly passed away. We were so devastated. Our hearts still desired to adopt but we had spent all of the money we had saved up. Brittanys Hope stepped in and was able to help us secure the needed funds to adopt a precious little girl. She is the light of our family and we are so blessed to have her. We couldn't have done this without the help of the Brittany's Hope Foundation. We will always be indebted to them for helping us complete our family!

My husband and I began the process to adopt a child from South Korea in the summer of 2016. We knew from the beginning that it would be a long and difficult journey. We also recognized that we would need to work hard, get creative, and use all the resources we could to make the finances come together. Thankfully our adoption agency let us know about available grants that we could apply for and connected us with Brittany's Hope. From our very first contact with them, we only had good things to say. The application process was straightforward, and we were so excited to hear that we were awarded a grant to help us bring our son home. Our contact at Brittany's Hope provided excellent information on the process to receive the funds, as well as additional fundraising ideas. Our son has now been home with us for 2 weeks and he is a complete joy. We are so grateful that Brittany's Hope played a part in our son's journey home. Their generous grant allowed us to continue our calling of opening our family to a precious child who needed one.

Brittany's Hope was able to provide a generous grant toward the adoption of our special needs child from China. We were unsure how the finances would come together, but knew that where God guides, He provides. Brittany's Hope was one of the ways He chose to help provide for our obedience to come to fruition and for our son to be welcomed into a forever family who can provide the HOPE he did not have during his 2,187 days as an orphan. Thank you Brittany's Hope for helping to bring another child home.

Brittany's Hope is an excellent nonprofit. They awarded us a matching grant to help us with the cost of an adoption, which can be quite expensive. We received our matching grant promptly and it really helped our family bring our son home. They have helped many other families, too. Their grants are a blessing to adopting families, and their staff are a joy to work with. Please know that if you contribute to Brittany's Hope, you are helping children find forever homes and helping their families bring them home.

We are Pete and Colleen Rupp. God has a great sense of humor we know! 13 years ago we went through All God's Children International to bring home our sons Xavier (21) and Michael(16) from Guatemala. We continued to support AGCI all these years because it was a great experience and we could not imagine life without them! So when we saw an email needing a home for a 14 yr old girl, we thought, why not! It did not work out but instead were given the opportunity to bring home Daniel ( 10) and Benjamin (8) from Colombia but were not sure how we could afford since 2 of our children were in college! AGCI helped us find Brittany's Hope Foundation and they made this adoption possibility a reality!! Just amazing to work with! And we are so very blessed with our family of 6 children!

I have been a donor for Brittany's Hope for quite some time. I like the idea that 100 percent of my contributions go to the cause I selected . I even visited The House of Love in Vietnam ( who had been receiving the aid from Brittany's Hope )with my family and sponsored a dinner with the staff and the children. We all were impressed of how well the children were taken care of and how kind and resourceful the "sisters' showed in managing the orphanage.
And I have seen how much BH has expanded under the direction of Mai lynn Sahd to become a global non profit organisation. Recently I was interested in the fact that BH was building a Home for the orphans in Kenya and Ethiopia, not mentioning that BH has a presence in Haiti for many years. Brittany's Hope definitively deserves a Top-Rated Award for non profit .

We've been sponsoring children through Brittany's Hope for several years and couldn't be happier with the entire experience. Everyone at Brittany's Hope loves what they do, they are professional, friendly, and committed to making a significant different in the lives of others every single day. Perhaps our favorite thing about BH is that we receive regular communication, pictures, and updates on the children we sponsor--we look forward to receiving each update because it helps us remember how important it is to invest in the lives of others AND we're reminded of how instrumental BH is in meeting the needs of less fortunate children. We LOVE Brittany's Hope so we tell everyone we know about them! :)

As an adoption social worker, I have seen many families benefit from the funds they received from Brittany's Hope. Families who are strong and supportive, but don't always have the funds to bring children with needs into their home. Without Brittany's Hope, so many amazing children wouldn't have an opportunity to experience the love of a family or receive the incredible medical care to improve their needs. I'm so grateful for this organization and I know they are making a tremendous difference for children and families all over the world.

Review from a graduate recipient from the program.
Ten years from today, I was an orphan myself and of course I still am in some ways but now I have a second place to call home and people that I call Mom and Dad from Brittany's Hope Foundation. The day I met wonderful people from Brittany's Hope Foundation on their service trip in Viet Nam (2007) was the day that has changed my entire life even though I did not know what was coming for me. I became a recipient of Brittany's Hope Foundation where I was sponsored for my education and as well as my living expenses. Growing up in a small remote village, going to school was a dream as many young kids dreamed about. I was one of them. I dreamed to finish high school and go to college to change my life for the better; to stop selling our hard work so cheap for the rich in the village. As my dreams came true, Brittany's Hope got me through high school, then college then one year studying abroad at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania. Not only did I receive material support from the program, I was as well given helpful advice and life lessons throughout my teen years. Without their ongoing supports and mentoring, I would not become who I am today. I am thankful for the people that have given up their time, money and efforts working on charity projects to help children worldwide like me. I am thankful because of their impacting works that have changed a lot of people's lives, I am now inspired to help people in need and live a life that matters.

Brittany's Hope is a wonderful organization which helps orphaned children in Vietnam and African countries. I sponsor two girls in Vietnam and have a loving and caring relationship with both girls through Brittany's Hope. This organization also assists families who are adopting children from other countries through grants.

I went to Vietnam in 2009 with Brittany's Hope Foundation. This was a trip of a lifetime ! They are the most amazing people and they do so much for the residents in Vietnam, especially the children. There were children that had never walked , they were 4&5 years old. With the help and equipment the foundation brought they can now walk. They brought lots of occupational therapy equipment. They bought cribs for orphanages and we set them up. We visited HIV centers . We spent three weeks traveling to 5 different cities. I will never forget about this experience and I would have brought home every child if I could have. These families and children greatly benefit from Brittany's Hope Foundation. They provide lots of assistance and education. Please donate your money or time if you can. I would gladly go back if asked especially now that I am a nurse

Brittany's Hope is a great Non Profits Organization that helps a lot of children. They hold a lot of fund raisers to raise money for the children and even finds corporations that will sometimes match donations. The money is used to help people adopt children, to build better housing for the children in orphanages in poorer countries and to provide care for these children. They have a program that you can sponsor a child and all the money goes to take care of that child and you are given yearly pictures and updates on that child. There is even a day each year that they skype with the children and you can go to a dessert social and talk with your child. You can even sponsor the child through their college years so the child has a chance to break the chain of poverty. I strongly recommend that you consider donating to this Non Profit Organization as they help a lot of children break the chain of poverty.
