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.

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!

Brittany's Hope is a beautiful organization! They offered professional advice and provided timely financial assistance to our family as we neared the end of our fundraising efforts to bring home our son from Poland. They are so easy to work with and we would highly recommend them to other adoptive families. Thank you Brittany's Hope for helping us reach that last little bit we needed in order to bring our son home!

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!

Brittany's Hope was an amazing organization and we will be forever grateful for their help in bringing our daughter home! The grant process from start to finish was very smooth, straightforward, and such a blessing! Our daughter is beyond amazing and we would not have her home with us without the help of the Brittany's Hope grant. We will recommend this amazing organization to every adoptive family that we know so that they can bring more orphans home! Thank you Brittany's Hope for blessing our family, helping the world, and being such an amazing influence in the life of orphans!

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!!!

Brittany's Hope is a terrific foundation that has helped so many orphans join forever families! Brittany's Hope is changing lives and our family is forever grateful for all that they have done to help three of our children with special needs born in China come home to our family!

Brittany's Hope Foundation has allowed us to bring our newly adopted children home much drier from financial worry than otherwise, and enabled us to insure their medical needs are immediately attended to. Our adoptive children are both special needs girls from China. Without the assistance of Brittan's Hope we would have borrowed a significant sum to complete the adoptions. The process was very fair and very easy to navigate. The staff are professional and incredible caring. Thank you again for all your assistance. It is making a very big difference!

Our family has been blessed with Brittany's. On top of their financial help, they were always patient and considerate during the good, bad, short and long days. They want adoptive families to succeed financially, emotionally and spiritually with the abundant resources they provide. It is evident that this organization's heart beats strongly for children. Thank you all who support 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.

With the help of a grant from Brittany's Hope, we were able to bring home our precious son Malachi from China. Malachi has Down Syndrome and is such a gift to our family. He joins his 9 siblings. Brittany's Hope was a pleasure to work with. Their procedure to apply for a grant and to receive a grant was very clear and not rigorous. The capability to do much of the required paperwork etc online was great. Any questions that j had were quickly answered via phone or email. They were a pleasure to work with.

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!
