I have been involved with Star of Hope since 2009. I have always been skeptical of these nonprofit organizations and how the donated monies are spent. But when I met the staff and actually went to Haiti, I personally saw how and where the money is used. I am very pleased with the work that Star of Hope does for those in need. I have now been to Haiti 8 times helping rebuild Schools, Churches, Orphanages, etc. Star of Hope is a great Christian based organization that does a lot for those in need. I will continue to support Star of Hope as long as I can!
I have personally seen the work that Star of Hope does in different country's. They help thousands of children around the world. I was fortunate to be able to travel with Star of Hope to Haiti before and after the earthquake. I have always wanted to help the less fortunate and thru Star of Hope I was able to. The first week I was there I helped with the construction an orphanage in Carrefore Haiti and was able to meet the children and people of Haiti and build lasting relationships. Thru Facebook I am still able to keep in contact with the friends that I made while I was there.
After the earthquake I was able to go back to Haiti thru Star of Hope for 2 months and help rebuild School furniture for the children and help rebuild churches and schools. While I was there I met a young girl that I sponsored until she was of age to leave the orphanage. I still send support for Star of Hope to use where needed. My wife also supports a girl at another one of there schools. Star of Hope Haiti have some very dedicated and loyal Haitians that work for them there in Haiti that really care for the people physically and spiritually. I was able to meet many of the pastors and teachers from Star of Hopes schools and churches there and was blessed beyond no end. The staff in Ellinwood Kansas are also very dedicated loving and loyal people who fear the Lord and do tremendous work for the needy across the globe.
While on another trip with another ministry I was able to see another one of Star of Hope's schools in Trinidad and was very impressed. The pastor of the church and school there were definitely God's servants, very loving and giving of themselves and there home. I was also blessed by being to help with the construction of their new church and school.
Most all children in these countries that are associated with Star of Hope would not have anything to eat at all if it weren't for Star of Hope and their sponsors. I was always worried about sending money anywhere not knowing how it would be spent and where. After getting to know the Staff personally in Ellinwood Ks., Haiti and Trinidad and seeing for myself where and how my money is spent I am not reluctant at all to make donations monthly. I wanted to go to less fortunate places to bless others with the talents that my Lord has blessed me with and in return was blessed 10 fold.
As a former board member and now the chairperson of the board of directors, I am so excited about Star of Hope and the international ministry they perform. This is a very benevolent organization with a strong administrative leadership .
I have been involved with Star of Hope for the past four years. At first I was a board member and am currently serving as the chair of the board. I am constantly amazed, blessed, and gratified by the present leadership of this organization particularly because of their focus and attitudes, those being the children, worldwide, that Star of Hope serves! I am also pleased and confident knowing that my donations always go to the intended purposes. It has been my pleasure working within this children-focused, Christ-centered ministry!
Star of Hope is fairly new to us, but learning more and more about their "full meal deal" of helping in so many areas of our world. We have ordered from the Christmas catalogue the last two years for our grandchildren and they have enjoyed knowing that there are some families being blessed with goats and chickens - supplying much needed food and productivity. We also have invested in the summer Conference for families and are hoping this year to visit on site, Lord willing. We are very impressed with this Non-Profit that is bringing so much profit to peoples' lives!
I knew of a very specific need at the orphanage in Haiti that my family wanted to fund with a gift last year. The staff at Star of Hope were very helpful in answering my questions and communicating with the field director in Haiti on our behalf. Time was critical in completing the particular transfer we had to make and Mark Presson, the CEO, helped in expediting the process even though he was on vacation at the time. The money was delivered in time and faithfully to the people responsible in Haiti. So donors can be assured that Star of Hope mission works as a team from the top leaders to the field directors to do the task effectively and make the donor team know that they are appreciated. I would endorse their work without reservation.
This Christian organization provides an amazing ministry to children around the world. They serve the child's physical needs with food and clothing, the child's educational needs as they bring the school to the villages with out education and most importantly the eternal spiritual needs as they teach the word of God.
We have partnered with Star of Hope for several years and have been extremely pleased with this excellent organization. All of the staff are very dedicated and work hard to ensure their important ministry is done with excellence and integrity. Highly recommend!
Star of Hope is an organization that helps people all over the world with physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. They love people and love Jesus!
Star of Hope takes care of the holistic needs of children and families alike. They're a positive force in negative world.
I have been involved in volunteering and working with Star of Hope's staff for the last 10 years participating and speaking at their national conferences for parents and children with disabilities in Romania and visiting many families at home in their own environment. I witnessed the love and compassion of all the staff, employees, volunteers working at Star of Hope International showed to the most vulnerable "the least" population in such a great need for physical, emotional, spiritual and financial support. Over the years only in Romania thousands of families with children with disabilities have been helped and supported physically, spiritually, emotionally and financially on a daily bases and sponsored through the years by Star of Hope International who provided medical and health care, education, food, clothes, shelters, medications, toys for children, animals for self-sustaining, which lifted the burden of parents caring for their disabled children with no resources for daily living and giving them hope for the future. Many of these families have been trained, educated and empowered to help themselves and others in the same situation. Living under communist in the past they never knew that their is hope in God's promises, never had a Bible to read in their life and did not know how to pray to receive strength from our Heavenly Father in their struggles with their physical and emotional pain. Star of Hope International works relentlessly through their professionals and developed programs to help these children with disabilities to be integrate in society and to increase their self esteem and to improve their quality of life. I am amazed by Star of Hope and my heart always has been touched by their love and care for these children with special needs for life.
