Mission: Shaohannah's hope is a movement to care for orphans. We mobilize individuals and communities to change the world for orphans and help provide waiting orphans with forever families by giving financial grants to those adopting, while also focusing on providing life-giving medical treatment for at-risk orphans with special needs to ensure the best possible outcome for each child.
Programs: Orphan care- shaohannah's hope is dedicated to participating in orphan care projects that address the holistic needs of orphans- physically and emotionally, with the ultimate goal of helping place the child in the best permanent situation possible, ideally a family. In recent years, the organization has focused their direct orphan care efforts in china by creating "show hope care centers" including marias big house of hope, a 6-story 60,000 square foot facility in luoyang, china, designed to care for up to 120 special needs orphans with medical impairments. There are five show hope care centers.
adoption assistance- shaohannah's hope is actively involved in providing waiting orphans with loving families by financially assisting adoptive couples through adoption grants. During the this reporting period the organization authorized more than 477 awards to adoptive families' adoption agencies and over $2,169,000 in funds were distributed. Furthermore, the organization provides resources and conference opportunities to all adoptive parents who are challenged by issues that are unique to some adoptive children in an interest to help shape a connected adopted culture.
adoption awareness- shaohannah's hope works to mobilize individuals and communities to care for orphans through a multigenerational approach. The organization is actively involved in raising awareness about the worldwide orphan crisis by working with media to channel their voice to the church and public at large including leveraging concert tours and media campaign with industry partners. In recent times, they have implemented a student initiative program to help shape our future leaders making the unaware, aware so they become responsible adults. Their awareness of the orphan crisis is a part of their life plan to take action.
