Service Trips

Service Trips are a great way to get involved with A Child’s Hope Foundation. Trips are a five-day opportunity to serve at a children’s home, improving the family-style orphanages and their communities. You’ll help with home and service projects in the morning, then play with the kids in the afternoons.

Register for a Public Trip

Open to everyone of all ages. These trips are great for families and individuals. Spots are available on a first come, first serve basis.

All adults 18+ are subject to a background check prior to their service trip. All minors must have a designated adult or legal guardian on their trip.

Reserved Trips

Reserved trips are an amazing opportunity to serve alongside your friends, family, or business associates and allow groups to have a customized itinerary. If you, your company or other group is interested in a private trip, please email [email protected].

If you’ve been invited on a reserved trip, you can register at the link below.

Cancellation Policy

“Usually we’re laying block or tile or building beds to make the dorms move-in ready for the kiddos, so I wondered if my artistic painting at Casa de Paz was worthwhile. Later, one of the little girls walked in and looked at her newly pink walls with flowers and sunshine. A huge grin spread across her face. She looked at her friend, saying something excitedly in Spanish. She started grabbing people to pose for a photo in front of the art. After nine years of doing these trips, it finally hit me that we’re not just constructing houses for children– we’re building their homes.”

Trip Cancellation Policy

From registration until two weeks* before the trip begins, the following cancellation terms apply:

  • The $100 (per person) deposit is nonrefundable
  • Volunteers can request a refund of the remaining trip payment (not the deposit), donate the remaining payment, or apply the remaining trip payment to a future trip.
    • The deposit can be applied automatically to a future trip.
    • The credit can be reserved for up to 12 months while the new trip is decided. Individuals will receive communication monthly about their trip credit.


*Once a trip is two weeks away, the entire trip payment, including van payment if applicable, is no longer eligible for refund or transfer. Last minute additions to van reservations may be considered but subject to availability. Special circumstances may be considered and may be subject to an additional late fee of $100.

If A Child’s Hope Foundation cancels a trip for any reason, volunteers have three options for their trip payment:

  • Select a future trip within 1 year of cancellation and payment will be transferred to that trip. If a trip is not selected within 1 year, paid fees will be reallocated as a donation to A Child’s Hope.
  • Donate trip payment to where kids need it most
  • Receive a full refund including deposit
