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 January 1, 2017, Brittany's Hope has helped unite 1,133 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 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.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 121 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.

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.

We have adopted two sisters into our family. Brittany's Hope was a great support to us. The staff were very helpful as we submitted the application and throughout the fundraising efforts. I really appreciate the work of this organization. They are providing tangible help at the same time they invite others to join us in our adoption journey.

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.

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!!

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.
