About Us

Children can’t take care of themselves. They need a safe and stable home. They need to belong. They need to know that people love them and believe they can do great things with their lives. All children deserve this hope, especially orphans. There are a lot of orphaned and abandoned children in this world who need hope. That’s why A Child’s Hope Foundation exists.

Helping to improve the lives of children

We’ve been around since 2002, helping orphaned and abandoned children in developing countries around the world. We get them into safe and loving homes. These kids need families, so we help them by:

  • Reuniting them with their families (when possible)
  • Supporting programs for adoption or foster care
  • Volunteering at family-style orphanages (very different than child-warehousing orphanages)
Think of our volunteers as affectionate aunts, uncles, and cousins. When they visit, they bring the fun! While our volunteers do construction projects at the orphanages for a few hours each day, their main focus is connecting with the orphans. A significant number of our volunteers have been with us multiple times, trying to stay connected with the children. We’re in these kids’ lives for the long haul!

We’ve done lots of important projects over the years, partnering with some great people. With your help we can save lives, build families, and be a child's hope for love and belonging in this world.
