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.

Our family has had a desire to adopt a child with special needs that needs a family. We started the process in 2017 and we quickly matched with a little girl in China that had Down syndrome. When we were about 2 months away from traveling to get our daughter, she suddenly passed away. We were so devastated. Our hearts still desired to adopt but we had spent all of the money we had saved up. Brittanys Hope stepped in and was able to help us secure the needed funds to adopt a precious little girl. She is the light of our family and we are so blessed to have her. We couldn't have done this without the help of the Brittany's Hope Foundation. We will always be indebted to them for helping us complete our family!

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.

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!

Review from a graduate recipient from the program.
Ten years from today, I was an orphan myself and of course I still am in some ways but now I have a second place to call home and people that I call Mom and Dad from Brittany's Hope Foundation. The day I met wonderful people from Brittany's Hope Foundation on their service trip in Viet Nam (2007) was the day that has changed my entire life even though I did not know what was coming for me. I became a recipient of Brittany's Hope Foundation where I was sponsored for my education and as well as my living expenses. Growing up in a small remote village, going to school was a dream as many young kids dreamed about. I was one of them. I dreamed to finish high school and go to college to change my life for the better; to stop selling our hard work so cheap for the rich in the village. As my dreams came true, Brittany's Hope got me through high school, then college then one year studying abroad at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania. Not only did I receive material support from the program, I was as well given helpful advice and life lessons throughout my teen years. Without their ongoing supports and mentoring, I would not become who I am today. I am thankful for the people that have given up their time, money and efforts working on charity projects to help children worldwide like me. I am thankful because of their impacting works that have changed a lot of people's lives, I am now inspired to help people in need and live a life that matters.

Our daughter was in the Brittanys Hope sponsorship in Vietnam. We adopted her 6 months ago, she's doing very well. Brittanys Hope saved her life by providing nutrients & open heart surgery. Without those 2 things, our daughters chance of survival was 0. Thank you for all you do for kids around the world! We are so thankful for you!

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.
