Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Adoption, Children & Youth, Children & Youth Services

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.

We were grateful to receive a matching grant from Brittany's Hope just week before our trip to Colombia to pick up our son, Miguel. It was such a great experience and we are forever thankful for this organization's aid in growing our family.

I have witnessed Brittany's Hope Organization change the lives of hundreds of orphans multiple times. I went on a service trip with the organization to Vietnam in 2015 and then again in 2017 as a student at Etown. I watched the staff members dedicated and passionate work in fundraising and their ability to come together with the Elizabethtown College students and the Elizabethtown surrounding community in a beautiful way. Their care and dedication is irreplaceable and the work they do is life changing. I plan on sponsoring a child with them and hold great trust in everything they do to help the children they serve.

Brittany's hope was a joy to work with. The process is very efficient and the staff and communication were spot on. This is a tough time for adoptive parents and the support they provide is a God send.

Brittany's Hope was great to work with through our adoption process. They helped us through the application process, and responded quickly to any questions we had. We are very appreciative for organizations like Brittany's Hope that help make the adoption process easier and support the system of adoption by bringing together adoptive families with donors that want to play a part in their story.

Brittany's Hope is a wonderful organization that played a major role in helping us bring our boys home from Colombia! Working with them was simple and straightforward. We felt very encouraged and supported by them. We cannot thank them enough for helping us through the adoption process!

Thank you to Brittany's Hope for blessing with a grant to bring home our very special son. They took into consideration that our financial needs were great because of just adopting a little boy in 2015 with the exact same special needs. They understood that normally my husband and I work extra hours to raise our own funds when adopting but our boys' special need requires multiple surgeries. So instead of working more during this adoption we worked less. We had multiple medical trips out of state for the son we had adopted in 2015 during Eddie's adoption process. We are forever grateful to Brittany's Hope for easing the financial burden.

Brittany's Hope has been a big help in fund raising for two of our internationally adopted children with special needs. They are very professional and timely in responses and yet very caring as well. We are so thankful for Brittany's Hope and all the children they have helped bring home to loving families!

We are Nathan and Amy from Chicago, IL and we wanted to share our amazing experience with Brittany's Hope Foundation! We completed two international adoptions this year and would not have been able to bring our daughters home without the help from Brittany's Hope Foundation. Our daughters both have neurological special needs and needed immediate medical care (amongst other things) upon arriving home. Receiving the Brittany's Hope adoption grant helped us provide our daughter's with the surgeries, therapies, and services that they needed in order to be able to thrive. The staff at Brittany's Hope were beyond amazing and even accommodated a grant extension for our second adoption. We will be forever grateful! Thank you Brittany's Hope Foundation!

When my husband and I began our journey adopting our precious son from Eastern Europe, we did not know how we were going to pay the $35-$40k that it cost to bring him home. We looked into grants, but our income which, here in the DC area is modest, disqualified us from most of the grants out there. However, Brittany's Hope accepted our application for a matching grant and we raised funds by selling homemade products to friends and family. The $3000 was such a help to us and the matching grant was a fun way to have others to help. Paula Tobias, who coordinated everything, was a wonderful and kind liaison. Thank you so much, Paula and Brittany's Hope! God bless you for what you do to bring precious children to loving homes.
