Children’s HopeChest believes that every orphan has the right to know God, experience the blessing of family, and have the opportunity to develop independent living skills.
Children’s HopeChest was founded in 1994 in response to the devastating need of orphans in Russia following the fall of the Iron Curtain. These children had serious basic needs – for clothing, food, medical and facilities – but more compelling was their need for love, human interaction and care, and future hope. In response, Children’s HopeChest developed a holistic approach which meets medical, physical, educational, emotional, and spiritual needs of orphaned children and youth, in fulfillment of our mission.
Our unique model connects churches, organizations and passionate individuals with orphanages – and now orphan CarePoints – to provide consistent help, training, and discipleship. We have taken this successful model to serve orphans in Swaziland, and more recently in Ethiopia and Uganda. Children’s HopeChest now manages individual and church partnerships with over 70 locations worldwide and provides care to over 10,000 orphans.
