Houses of Hope International was founded in 1998 as a non-profit organization which establishes homes that provide a safe and caring environment for children who have been orphaned and abandoned in some of the poorest countries on earth. Here they are able to sit at dinner with a mother and a father. Some of them have never done that in their lives.
To bring healing to orphaned or abandoned children by providing an environment where they can grow strong emotionally and physically, and become healthy adults and productive citizens of their nations.
A holistic approach to restoring a child. This includes providing medical aid, education, food, clothes, books, as well as inculcate habits resulting in clean surroundings, personal hygiene, and an awareness of the environment. Additionally, education, arts and language skills give them the opportunity to develop into leaders.
We believe that family – in the form of love from caring parents – is the most natural and effective healing and empowering agent for the child. We do not believe in “warehousing” children.
Individual homes, or clusters of homes, consisting of up to 10-15 children, being raised by committed long-term house parents in a caring disciplined environment.
