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 April 1st, 2014, Brittany's Hope has helped united 667 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 1,400 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: 102 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.

Brittany’s Hope awarded my family a grant to bring our daughter home. They were timely with correspondence and clear on our requirements. We are very thankful for the part Brittany’s Hope played in bringing our daughter 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!

We were grateful to receive a matching grant from Brittany's Hope just week before our trip to Colombia to pick up our son, Miguel. It was such a great experience and we are forever thankful for this organization's aid in growing our family.

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.

Brittany's Hope has been a big help in fund raising for two of our internationally adopted children with special needs. They are very professional and timely in responses and yet very caring as well. We are so thankful for Brittany's Hope and all the children they have helped bring home to loving families!

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.
