We invite you to join us in transforming the lives of orphans through a community-to-community sponsorship with HopeChest.
HopeChest offers you a “community-to-community” model of sponsorship and development. We invite your entire church or business or whatever you call your community to come alongside a community of orphaned and vulnerable children in need. Resources from your community flow into theirs–people, money, prayer.
The ultimate goal is to give every orphan the chance to succeed in their home culture and know God through a personal relationship with Jesus.
This partnership provides something for every member of the community. Some of your members will sponsor a child and begin a relationship that involves sending money and exchanging letters. But you can also engage by going on trips, praying for the kids, helping write letters, organizing fundraisers, giving what money you can offer when there are special trips and fundraisers.
The entry points are endless. Everyone in your community can have ownership in what’s happening at the community you sponsor–if they want it. It’s a full-featured set of ways to live out God’s commandments to love and care and do justice for orphans.
Children’s HopeChest connects Christian communities in the U.S. and Canada with impoverished communities of orphans overseas. This unique “community-to-community” sponsorship leverages the power of one community of Christians making a long-term, transformational impact on a community of orphans and vulnerable children.
Ultimately, these relationships and resources empower orphans to survive, thrive, and succeed within their home culture.
HopeChest has over 100 active partnerships in Russia, Swaziland, South Africa, Ethiopia, Uganda, Haiti, Guatemala, Moldova, and India. Partnering with an international community allows you to experience deep levels of compassion. You will learn joy beyond circumstance and greater dependence and faith in God. This real relationship will transform your community as you transform theirs.
Children’s HopeChest works with hundreds of communities across the United States and Canada each year. HopeChest partners primarily with churches, businesses and Christian communities such as blogs, online groups, book clubs, and small groups. These sponsoring communities are providing help, training, and discipleship for over 10,000 orphans.

“A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was trampled down, and the birds of the air devoured it. Some fell on rock; and as soon as it sprang up, it withered away because it lacked moisture. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it and choked it. But others fell on good ground, sprang up, and yielded a crop a hundredfold.”
