Not Your Typical Child Sponsorship
Though impactful, the traditional child sponsorship model does not address the child’s whole environment.
When the child grows up, they’re left in the same place they started - a broken community.
We Need a Different Approach
We're called to look beyond child sponsorship and work for the long-term sustainability of children and their communities.
Child-Focused Community Development
A Voice and Choice
for the Child.
For children living in poverty, choices are limited. The Friendship Model puts the choice in the hands of the child, allowing him or her to choose YOU as their HopeChest Friend and reframing our traditional views of child sponsorship.
Community-to Community Relationships.
Through two-way, Community-to-Community relationships, communities around the world, called CarePoints, are partnered with North American communities to maximize impact, build long-term relationships, and create sustainable change.
Long-Term, Sustainable Impact.

A CarePoint is a community with a high population of vulnerable children that is partnered with a North American community, like churches, schools, businesses, and individuals.

Transformation can’t happen without you. Get your church, school, business, or friend group involved with a CarePoint and start empowering a community to fight the cycle of poverty.
Empower a Child
Become a HopeChest Friend and develop a personal relationship with a child in the CarePoint you’re involved with. Your child sponsorship will help to transform entire communities.
Fund a Project
To understand and address the underlying problems that cause poverty, we view communities through 12 different lenses, which we’ve identified as the “Twelve Areas of Transformation.”
Give a gift where needed most, join the Alliance of Hope, promote food security, or make long-term plans for giving.
