Community Partnerships for Individual Groups

Are you part of a community of people who are passionate about alleviating poverty around the globe?

We believe holistic transformation in the world’s most vulnerable communities occurs when one community partners with another. We work with small groups, community and interest-based groups, Bible studies, and influencers to create partnerships with communities of orphaned and vulnerable children around the world.

By becoming a HopeChest Partner, you and your community can become a catalyst to sustainability by:

Connecting with children and their families

Your community will stay up-to-date on progress and updates about your CarePoint through a Community Page specifically created for your CarePoint and through prayer, letter writing, financial support, and
partner visits.

Tell Us About Yourself.

Part of building a relationship is getting to know those involved. We’ll work closely with you to identify areas your community is passionate about so we can best partner you with an overseas community.

Visit a CarePoint.

There is power in an experience. We’ll take you on a Vision Trip to visit some CarePoints in the country you’re interested in partnering with. This gives you an opportunity to then choose the CarePoint that is the best match for you and your community, as well as experience firsthand the need for partnership and your potential impact.

Create a Development Plan.

No two CarePoints are alike. In partnership with local leaders at your CarePoint, we’ll create a development plan to help measure success. Using an asset-based approach, we’ll outline specific community goals, objectives and vision for that particular community. The development plan is based on our Survive, Thrive, Succeed model.

Start Building Relationships.

Our Community-to-Community model provides a rich opportunity for people in your church to get involved in holistic and transformative work. Members of your church will be equipped and empowered to serve cross-culturally in a healthy way.

Becoming a HopeChest Friend

Unlike traditional child sponsorship models, becoming a HopeChest Friend puts the choice in the hands of the child. Members of your community interested in sponsoring a child are selected by children at your CarePoint. HopeChest Friends financially support the programs children attend at your CarePoint and are able to write letters and even visit their Friends.

Going on a Partner Visit

Share your spiritual gifts, talents, and love with your partner community by going on a partner visit. Different than a mission trip, these trips are designed to help your congregation build life-long relationships with communities.

Funding a Project

As needs are identified in the community you partner with, you’ll have the opportunity to help fund projects that meet specific needs. Your financial support helps strengthen your CarePoint and invests in a sustainable future.

Radical Transformation

I have been partnering with communities in Ethiopia for five years. I have learned so much about how injustice affects the world I live in and how resilient humanity is. The partnership model of HopeChest has created so many tangible relationships in my life. I’m thankful to see transformation on so many levels within the communities I partner with. As a HopeChest Partner Leader, I get to see families gain a sense of renewed hope and watch their children flourish.
