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 am a member of non-profit affiliate agency who works together with Brittany's Hope to provide grants for many qualified adoptive families who have hearts for special needs adoptions. I amazed at the warmth and professionalism of the staff that I work with. Brittany's Hope Seedling Gift program is an amazing grant program that utilizes adoption agency, recipient families and grant agency, to work together to achieve one goal - reuniting orphaned children with their forever families. What a joy and privilege it is to serve together with Brittany's Hope in achieving this goal.

In June, 2010, we arrived home from Russia with our beautiful daughter. When we first started the adoption process, we heard about our daughter through Brittany's Hope. Because of her age and medical needs, they had offered a very generous grant to help with expenses. Once we saw her picture, we couldn't get her out of our minds. This little girl was for us.
Working with Brittany's Hope was such a wonderful experience. 100% of the donations received goes to help children worldwide. They have feeding programs, provide cribs to orphanages, provide grants to children with special needs, and many other programs.
We are very grateful for their help as a recipient family. We are also grateful for their generous help to other families and kids worldwide. Their staff is very professional, accessible and "hands-on". We can't say enough good about them.

In October of 2010 we began the process to adopt our son from Uganda. As I am sure most everyone knows...adoption is expensive. Brittany's Hope offered us a grant to ease the cost of adopting our son from Uganda. They were so easy to work with and so encouraging! We are so thankful for this organization and their commitment to see children brought home to families! They were a blessing to our family!

In November 2009, we adopted our son from South Korea. Matthew was considered a waiting child. While it seems that all children who have yet to be adopted are “waiting”, what this really means is that he had been eligible for adoption for a long time (in his case, he had been waiting for about 2 years). However because of a special need, a family had not yet come forward to adopt him.

We were constantly amazed by the generosity of others during our adoption process. One of the miracles we experienced was a large grant we received from Brittany’s Hope that helped cover some of our adoption expenses. Brittany’s Hope knew about Matthew long before we had ever laid eyes on him. They identified Matthew as a child who had waited way too long to find his family. In South Korea, when a child reaches a certain age without being adopted, they are at risk of being permanently placed in an orphanage. Knowing how long his wait had already been and that he couldn’t afford to wait much longer, Brittany’s Hope placed a $5000 grant on Matthew to help alleviate the costs of bringing him home. While this grant was not the reason we chose to adopt Matthew, it was an amazing blessing, and it gave us such peace of mind as we worked through the process.

Brittany’s Hope works miracles like this every day for children who wait all over the world.

Brittany's Hope Foundation helps orphans in a variety of ways. We were blessed by Brittany's Hope Foundation because they gave us a matching grant so we could adopt five sisters. We could not have done it without their financial assistance. Our five girls were able to stay together because of their grant. They really work to help find older and special needs children forever families. All children deserve this chance that Brittany's Hope Foundation helps to make possible. We are forever thankful for their support.

Brittany’s Hope Foundation has been such a blessing to our family. I real believe that without them our son would still be in an orphanage in China. They had put a grant on our son as he was a little older (3) and was missing his arm. We saw him and fell in love with him, but did not have all the funds to bring him home. Then Brittany's Hope put a grant with the family that would choose him as their son. That sealed the deal for us. We knew we could do it and Brittany's Hope gave us the help and encouragement to go forward. Our son Ezekiel is now home and doing very well. He loves his family and we are so grateful for Brittanys Hope!!! They changed a life forever!

BHF is a wonderful organization that gave generously to my son's adoption agency so he could be adopted by our family. They truly care about all the adoptable children with significant special needs joining a family of their own. Because of their efforts many disabled, and medical needs children now have families when they once did not.

Brittany's Hope placed a grant on our son in 2009. We were impressed with BHF because the grant was child-based not based on our church attendance or performance, our income, or anything involving us. The grant helped us pay our son's expenses off within 6 mos of his arrival (Dec 09), and as a result we were able to proceed with a second adoption of a 6 year old girl in China. We would still be paying on our son's adoption and not able to afford a second if it weren't for BHF. This is how granting programs should work. The grants should be based on the CHILD not the family. BHF is truly a blessing and we remain ever grateful.

Brittany's Hope has awarded grants to our two adoptive children due to special needs. Thanks to their support, our children were able to be placed in homes. They were supportive and helpful throughout our process, even through an interrupted adoption and the loss of a child. They do a great job of keeping us informed on what they are doing through the world to serve children.

Brittany's Hope does so many wonderful things for abandoned children around the world. I was lucky enough to assist them with their Sunflower Children project which provided essentials for orphans who aged out of the system and were being set out on their own. We were able to provide over 400 children with clothing, hygiene products, first aid kits, blankets and other important items for their survival. I was very touched by this project and the numerous other projects that they pioneer for the benefit of orphans everywhere!
