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.

The Brittany's Hope Foundation is absolutely wonderful!! They were so supportive during our adoption of a sweet and precious special needs boy from China. They explained their grant program clearly and answered all of our questions promptly and with such kindness. We feel so blessed to have had their financial and emotional support during this incredible journey in our lives!!

Brittany’s Hope awarded my family a grant to bring our daughter home. They were timely with correspondence and clear on our requirements. We are very thankful for the part Brittany’s Hope played in bringing our daughter 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!

We would not have been able to bring home our twins without the amazing help of Brittany's Hope! They not only helped us to fund but they also empowered us with tools and resources to fundraise and save to reach our goals!

Brittany's Hope is an amazing organization! By fundraising for our own adoption, we are also helping others in their journey as well. The process was very streamlined and easy to do, and our grant money was received before travel, which basically made our travel possible!
I would highly recommend BH to anyone adopting!

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.

I've been a volunteer with Brittany's Hope since it's early years and I can't believe how much it had grown. This is an amazing organization making a dramatic difference in the lives of abandoned children worldwide. I'm so proud it's roots are here in Lancaster County, and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of something bigger.

I have the distinct privilege of being a sponsor to a child in Vietnam through Brittany's Hope! They do a good job of making sure I know where my monthly donation goes and I strongly believe in the mission of the organization. They respond quickly to any and all inquiries. I have also been a volunteer and a participant in fundraisers and on a service trip to Vietnam. This organization never fails to impress me with their compassion, organization, and every employees investment in the agencies mission. If you want to do some good and feel peace of mind that your money is going to a good cause Brittany's Hope is the organization to trust!

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. My girls and I exchange letters and photos, and the staff at Brittany's Hope are so helpful and know these children personally through visits to their orphanages. I love Brittany's Hope and am grateful for being allowed to be a part of them through my sponsorship.
