Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Adoption, Children & Youth

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 May 1, 2020, Brittany's Hope has helped unite 1,384 special needs 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. We continue to offer financial grants, through our affiliate agencies, to American adoptive families looking to open their hearts and homes to adopt children with special needs through inter-country adoption.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 103 special children have 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 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 in Viet Nam, Kenya, & Ethiopia. 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. Brittany's Hope provides mattresses and blankets for children in the centers. 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Our sixth adoption...so many waiting children needing a permanent and caring family that will provide unconditional love. We have been blessed that with faith, we were able to complete another adoption. Each being a daunting financial challenge but with the support of Brittany's Hope Foundation and their strong mission to assist families with international adoption, we completed the adoption of our son from China.

Our adoptive son is 11 years old and has a physical handicap that reduced his ability to find a family. Thinking we were done raising children, our hearts knew someone needed to take him and who better than our family. This makes our eighth child, each of which has brought a new perspective to our lives.... Faith brought us to Brittany's Hope and gave us the support we needed to raise our seeding match. Their continued progress reports gave us the energy to keep moving forward in spreading the word. We were able to make our match the week before we flew to China to pick up our son.

We are not very open people about our personal lives but Brittany's Hope seeding program motivated us to share our story. Through our newspaper story and Facebook campaign, we received other "in kind" support, such as donated airline miles. Our prayers are that this amazing organization can continue to help place more children. Please consider supporting Brittany's Hope Foundation, we have been blessed by them.

We received a matching grant from Brittany's Hope in 2016. This foundation was very helpful and easy to work with. Our raised funds were distributed to us in a timely manner and we were able to travel to China to bring home our son with these funds. Without the help of Brittany's Hope and their generous grant program, we wouldn't of been able to go to our son as quickly as we did. We will forever be thankful and grateful for the generosity and steadfast support from Brittany's Hope. Our son, Theo is now home and getting proper medical care. He is thriving and attaching to our family. We would of missed out on such an awesome experience if we wouldn't of taken such a huge leap of faith. We thank God for our son and for opening the hearts of so many people who donate to Brittany's Hope Foundation in order for families like ours to adopt. Thank you again! Our hearts are full!

Our family adopted our son in 2007 from Vietnam, and very much wanted to add to our family again through adoption. Sadly, the U.S. stopped adoptions from Vietnam in 2008 due to corruption and child trafficking concerns. While we attempted several other adoption options, we felt strongly led wait for Vietnam to reopen to U.S. adoptions so our 4th child would share our son's birth country and ethnic heritage. So we waited 6 long years for adoptions to reopen. In 2014 when we got the news that Vietnam had chosen to open a small, pilot program for special needs children, we were overjoyed and started the process immediately. We were the first family to have our paperwork submitted to the Vietnamese government! We received the referral of 7 month old Linh Khanh Ho in Febrary of 2015. Unfortunately, because of Hague regulations and being a new process, we waited a year and a half after seeing our daughters face of excruciating delays and unknowns, at one point even being told the process might not being completed, until we were able to travel to being our daughter home.
While we were incredibly grateful for the financial support that the seedling grant from Brittany's Hope provided, what was amazing and truly an answer to prayer was the constant support and prayer that Brittany's Hope was to our family through the long and difficult wait. They regularly checked in with us, asked where the process was, and offered counsel and prayers. They even provided in-country support when we visited our 9 year old son's orphanage and spent time in the city of his birth!
We have had the amazing opportunity to learn more about all the different kinds of work that Brittany's Hope does around the world, specifically in Vietnam. While we don't know if we will be adding to our family through adoption again, we do know that we will be working with Brittany's Hope through all of their amazing programs.
We are so grateful for Brittany's Hope, for their vision, passion and leadership in the area of caring for children around the world!

Thank you, THANK YOU to Brittany's Hope.
With all the other paperwork and things to do for our adoption, this was an easy process, and had such a huge impact. We are so grateful for the encouragement and love we also received along with our grant. So priceless.
We didn't know how we were going to financially meet the needs we had to bring our daughter home, and this grant helped us meet those final needs and lift that burden completely off our shoulders so we could focus on the things we needed to.
Brittany's Hope will forever have a special part in our adoption. THANK YOU.

This grant was instrumental in helping us complete our adoption. Some of our donors had some technical difficulties with donating via the web site but those were worked out. The hardest thing for us was the timing of the grant fund raising. Our fund raising time was from date of referral until we traveled to pick up our daughter, just shy of 4 month. The amount of time was not the difficulty as mush as the time of year (summer). We had to cancel several of our planned fundraisers either because of venue use issues (May, June and July are very popular wedding months) or because vacations and family reunions had too many friends and family out of town. Fortunately, we had received several pre-fundraising commitments around Christmas time from friends and family and that really helped us to raise more than our goal.

Adoption was always a day we had long dreamed of but never knew how we could afford such an endeavor. We are so grateful for Brittany's Hope Foundation! They came in at the end and helped us finish our fundraising efforts when we had exhausted all of our resources. Brittany's Hope made it possible for us to keep within our efforts to stay debt free and enjoy the journey of adoption and not get lost in all of the financial woes. We will always remember Brittany's Hope Foundation because of the impact they had on our family and bringing our sweet Matthew home. We are in love......

We were told about Brittany's Hope from our adoption agency. We found Brittany's Hope staff to be very informative and helpful when we had questions and when we wanted to see our fundraising progress in a very timely manner. Thank you for the grant you gave us, our beautiful daughter is now home and thriving. She is thrilled to have 3 brother, 3 sisters. Our youngest daughters,Grace and Olivia knew each other in China, they were in the same foster home (Bethel China a foster home for blind children) and were very close friends there. Now they are home and are forever sisters! Here is a picture of Grace on the left and Olivia they are dancing at their sisters wedding and were also the flower girls in the wedding!

Brittany's Hope Foundation offered a wonderful experience during our adoption process. It was really special to partner with other families who were adopting in "paying it forward" with our matching funds. Our friends and family who donated found it very easy to use the website for donations and also appreciated that they were able to receive a tax deductible receipt, and help others as well as our family/children. As questions or concerns arose throughout the entire LENGTHY process of our adoption, Brittany's Hope staff were always incredibly courteous, understanding, and quick to respond.

Brittany's Hope was a wonderful organization to work with. There were many adoption grant foundations we applied to, and many we never heard back from. However, Brittany's Hope exceeded our expectations in communicating with us. We were so incredibly blessed by their adoption grant. Both of our children have special needs and our medical bills last year were enormous. Had it not been for Brittany's Hope, it would've been difficult to have all of the finances to finalize our adoption. We are so grateful. And Paula, you were a joy to work with!

We received an adoption grant from Brittany's Hope. Our experience with them was nothing but positive. So very kind and attentive. Went above and beyond just offering financial support. Excellent communication. Their heart and passion for adoption shines through brightly. Without the assistance of grants such as theirs, it simply would not have been possible for us to bring our precious daughter home where she belongs. I love the concept of "paying it forward" that their grant represents. Such a blessing to be able to help another family as well!

My husband and I always wanted to adopt. After we both graduated college and started our careers we launched out on our first amazing adoption adventure. In 2008 we applied with Holt International to adopt our first child. We were matched with our son in January of 2009 and brought him home June of 2009. He was the cutest 6 month old ever!!! In 2010 we applied again with Holt International for our second child. This process took much more time. It wasn't until December of 2011 that we were matched with our daughter, also born in Ethiopia. We brought her home in May of 2012. She was 14 months old. She was a very resilient little girl! In 2013 we applied again with Holt International and came very close to bringing home a waiting child from Ethiopia. But this wasn't meant to be. In January of 2015 Rhonda found a sweet waiting child on Holt's Korea page. In just 3 short weeks our family was matched with a 14 month old girl with multiple medical needs. We arrived home with her December 24th, 2015. She was 26 months old. She is the perfect addition to our family! Along this last adoption journey we had friends and family approach us asking if there was anyway they could give toward our adoption fees. We were blown away by this! We did no fundraising at all for the first two adoptions and so this was unknown territory for us. We talked with Holt International about this. They mentioned your matching grant. We then found you online and inquired. The information was clear and concise on how the process would play out. Your staff is always quick to respond via email and very helpful. We are so thankful that your foundation exists. It was such a relief to point our friends and family to your website and they could give what they were comfortable with in the comfort of their homes. We are still shocked that we made our goal! International adoption is very expensive, but we know now to not let that stop us! Thank you so much for helping our family bring home our daughter.

Some time ago, my wife and I traveled overseas on a mission's trip and there in Southeast Asia we saw the needs of many homeless children firsthand. This was hard to see by itself, but then we began to realize that not only were many of the children homeless, many were also abandoned.

This knowledge broke our hearts and as a result of seeing this, God began the process of working in our lives, calling us to be more actively involved in caring for the orphans of the world.

Finally, after much prayer and deliberation our family made the decision to adopt, to open our home to a little boy and to provide him with the love and nurture he needs to flourish in life.

However the cost of adoption was more than we could handle on our own. As a result, we started applying to various foundations to seek their assistance. Brittany's Hope was one of those and they provided a generous financial grant to help us complete our adoption.

I cannot say enough good things about them. Brittany's Hope is a wonderful, caring foundation that helped us when it mattered and for that we are so thankful! They showed genuine concern and worked hard to help us adopt. Thanks Brittany's Hope!!!

At the end of 2012, Russia enacted a ban forbidding Americans from adopting from Russia. Our family was one of those who were "caught in the middle," having already visited our future son once. To say that we were devastated that the process had come to an abrupt end would be a gross understatement.

Several months before, we had received a matching grant from Brittany's Hope for our adoption. When the foundation heard about our situation, they were quick to contact us to express their sympathy and offer encouragement. They authentically cared about us as people and as an adoptive family.

Fast forward to 2015. It was with great joy that we were able to welcome Estella into our family from Burundi, Africa. Brittany's Hope transferred our grant to this adoption, making it possible for us to travel and bring our daughter home.

The team at Brittany's Hope have been fabulous to work with. They truly have a heart for adoption and for families. We wholeheartedly recommend them as an organization who can assist with the costs, ups and downs of the adoption process.

We applied for an Adoption Grant from Brittany's Hope in order to help offset some of the expenses associated with the adoption of our daughter from China. From first contact through receipt of the grant funds we could not have been more pleased with the folks at Brittany's Hope. Every contact I had with them during the application and review process was met with a warm, cheerful and encouraging response and prompt action, it was a true pleasure every time we spoke. Now that we have completed our adoption and our daughter is here with us I have had the opportunity on several occasions to discuss with other families who are in the process of their own adoptions various grant programs and my first recommendation is always to contact Brittany's Hope as your first resource. We cannot thank the wonderful people working with this fine organization for all the outstanding work they are doing and the blessings they continue to bestow on adoptive families.

Brittany's Hope helped us with our adoption expenses. Two weeks ago (after a 2+ year process), we finally brought Li-eun home from South Korea. She has a rare medical condition, which she received excellent care for in South Korea, and had been on a Waiting Child list with our agency. After we were matched in April 2014, we waited until September 2015 to bring her home (South Korea has a very long court process). We went into our adoption process with a certain amount saved up, but the total costs were about what the two of us earned in a year (when I was working part-time; we're now both full time). Because we are a young family, and had spent our early, post-college and married years working and volunteering with a non-profit Hurricane Katrina Relief organization, we did not have the total amount saved up. Brittany's Hope provided us with a matching grant that completely covered the costs of our second (custody) trip. Their generosity was only matched by their professionalism; throughout this process, we have interacted with many individuals and entities, and I can truly say that our interactions with Brittany's Hope were among the most helpful, courteous, and encouraging.

Brittany's Hope was very instrumental is helping us bring our 3 boys home from Ethiopia. We had answered the call to adopt 3 more children 2 1/2 years after bringing home a brother and sister sibling group in 2011. Many family and friends wanted to help and by using the matching grant through Brittany's Hope we were able to raise a substantial amount to help us with the final costs of adoption. Although there have been many up and downs these past 9 months since the boys have come home, we can definitely see the Lord's hand in helping all of us to adjust and attach to one another. A heartfelt thank you to Brittany's Hope for making this adoption possible!

Our adoption agency did the vetting and felt, because of our daughter's special need that would require ongoing life long care, we qualified for a $10,000 grant from Brittany's Hope. But our travel to China was impending. We had from July 1, when the grant cycle began, to July 9th, when we flew to China, to complete the required paperwork/contract and raise the required $5,000 for Brittany's Hope...all from a vacation in rural North Carolina where accessing the internet and a notary was difficult. However, the staff at Brittany's Hope was more than patient and flexible. They helped us complete required paperwork as quickly as possible so we could focus on reaching out to friends and family who'd pledged to support us. We were able to raise the funds for Brittany's Hope before we left for China. Once home, a real, honest to goodness check for $10,000 arrived in the mail from our adoption agency. We are amazed and beyond grateful for the financial support, which relieves some of the financial stress of traveling abroad and now preparing for surgery and deductibles. Thank you, Brittany's Hope, for helping make our adoption possible.

Our family is so grateful for the opportunity to work with Brittany's Hope Foundation! Without the help from their grant and fundraising our adoption would not have been possible. We started our 2nd adoption after falling in love with a sweet little girl in China with down syndrome who had been abandoned at birth. We had already spent all our savings and everything we had on our first adoption 2 years ago but we knew this little girl was meant to be part of our family. We took a leap of faith and started the process of adoption to bring her home. Brittany’s Hope was so helpful and encouraging every step of the way. She has now been home for 4 months and it has been wonderful watching her learn, grow and achieve new things in such a short amount of time. Thank you for EVERYTHING!

Adopting is expensive! And we are so grateful for Brittany's Hope for coming alongside us as we made this huge investment to adopt three sisters from Bulgaria. Our girls were placed in an orphanage when they were 2, 4, and 6 years old. When they were 6, 8, & 10, they were placed in two separate foster homes for almost 2 years before we were able to adopt them. While we had tried to save for our adoption, our expenses were far greater than we had anticipated. Our grant from Brittany's Hope gave us a huge boost! It has been a big relief that we did not have to take out loans or have credit card debt as a result of our adoption. This leaves us less stressed and more able to love and nurture the girls instead of worrying about money.

I'm a single mother with two adopted daughters from China. In 2014, I felt inspired to adopt again but was a full-time graduate student at the time. The financial obligation was the only hurdle to adopting a lovely 9 year old boy who captured my heart with his smile and self-confident expression. The costs of an international adoption can be over $20,000! I committed to the adoption and I submitted an application to Brittany's Hope at the same time. Within weeks, I learned of being accepted into the Seedling Grant program, which gave me confidence and trust that, over the next year, I would be able to fundraise all needed funds. Receiving that first promise of support made a tremendous difference to my outlook on the huge task ahead. I applied for every adoption grant I was eligible for, and did receive some of them, but that first show of support was the most important because it carried me through the rest of the year. I also felt good sharing the story of BH and hopefully expanding the BH family of supporters. Thank you for all you do.

When my husband and I learned that our international adoption from China would be fast tracked we panicked. Though thus far we had financed our own adoption through savings and creative fundraising in our community we were suddenly looking at traveling in a matter of weeks, rather than months. Our agency recommended we apply to Brittany's Hope Foundation Seedling Grant and we were so glad we did! Brittany's Hope walked us through every step of the fundraising process and together we raised the necessary funds to bring our son home. What we really loved about Brittany's Hope is unlike other granting organizations they play it forward. The funds we raised will help another family bring their son or daughter home to their forever family. Truly the greatest gift there is.

We started our adoption journey August of 2013 through Building Blocks in Medina Ohio, and Children's house international in Washington, we found our son and finished the home study as well as all the paperwork. I never thought we could do such a big dream! But God sent a positive letter stating we received a grant with Brittany's Hope and it made us so happy knowing God was watching over us and He would take care of us every step. Big thank you to all involved with help us bring our son home...this donation was a big step to our airplane tickets to flight and pick up our son. Thank you again.

Brittany's Hope was a huge help in the adoption of our second child from Ethiopia. They couldn't have been more supportive and the Seedling Gift Program matched donations, helping to offset our significant travel costs. Our family appreciates all that they were able to do for us during this difficult process. I'd highly recommend them to anyone wanting to help adoptive families.

Brittany's Hope is the most incredible grant organization. We have three adopted children and were blessed with a grant for our last adoption- and hands down, Brittany's Hope was the most fantastic organization that we had the pleasure of working with during all of our adoptions. What sets them apart is their personal attention to your family. Not only did the staff know our adoptive daughter's name, but they knew our entire family. They took time to care for us, to reach out to us, and to encourage us in our wait to bring her home. Their personal service is just a small window into the BIG BIG hearts of the people at Brittany's Hope!

Most recently, our already large family began the adoption process to bring home special needs twins from China. Our budget being already stretched, we were concerned about how to finance this adoption. We began holding fundraisers and such, but we were still short on our funding. At the prompting of our agency, we applied for a Brittany's Hope adoption grant. Brittany's Hope is a unique organization, in that they have a seedling program, so money we raised was used to support other families who were closer to traveling. And then when our time came to travel, the money we raised was matched, by this amazing agency. Communications with this agency were excellent. The staff I met and talked to were very professional and courteous. I am very, very impressed with this agency, and cannot tell you how much we appreciated their assistance. Our boys are now HOME! In part, due to the grant assistance from Brittany's Hope!!!

We were so very blessed to receive an adoption grant through Brittany's Hope! They are a wonderful organization that helps to make the financial portion of an adoption possible for families. They were wonderful to work with and helped us with our fundraising portion of the grant. They were so encouraging every step of the way, and even on the weeks that we had no progress in our fundraising efforts, they still sent us encouraging words to keep working hard and moving forward. The grant we received from Brittany's Hope was a huge blessing to us financially! We feel very grateful for their help and for the wonderful service they offer the adoption community.

Brittany's Hope is a wonderful non-profit organization that provides matching grants to families adopting a special needs child from another country. Their application is very simple and they provide excellent support throughout the fundraising process. They work through your adoption agency and the money is released directly to your agency once the child is home with you. We were awarded a grant early in our process and quickly raised the funds needed for the matching portion. It took two years for our adoption to finalize but when we came home the money was waiting for us. This was very helpful for us to quickly pay off the expenses from the travel. We are extremely grateful to Brittany's hope.

Brittany's Hope is a wonderful non profit organization that offers grants to adoptive families.
For us it was truly a wonderful gift that enabled us to help pay for our travel expenses. It certainly lightened the load of financial stress for our family. It is a matching fund grant that is simple and easy to use. Or sons might still be waiting if not for Brittany's Hope. I would recommend this organization to anyone. They were wonderful.

Brittany's Hope grant match provided incentive for family and friends to donate and to
"double" their donation! It was a wonderful support to our adoption.

We are so grateful for Brittany's Hope. In March, we adopted our precious daughter from China and Brittany's Hope played a huge part with their generous grant. The process was smooth, timely and we are eternally grateful!
