Hear from One of Our Partners

"...don't do this by yourself.

Holistic transformation is rooted in three things:

The Gospel

Everything we do is in response to the gospel and an opportunity for discipleship (James 1:27).


The currency of the Kingdom is relationship. Our model transforms both communities through the power of relationship and cross-cultural sharing of passions, gifts, and talents (1 Thess. 2:8).

Sustainable Development

Community transformation is achieved through strategic, locally-led, and asset-based, sustainable solutions to overcoming poverty.

What Sets HopeChest Apart?

- Community-to-Community partnership model will engage every person in the congregation in a two-way transformational relationship

- Strategic holistic development with an EXIT strategy

- Unmatched impact results and reporting

- Full-service global ministry with no impact to the budget

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.

Partner With a CarePoint.

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 congregation will be equipped and empowered to serve cross-culturally in a healthy way.



HopeChest is a beautiful bridge that connects the hearts and resources of our community to the lives and needs of the children and families at the CarePoint. The foundation of every HopeChest mission is relationship. Through these relationships, God is working miracles not only in the communities we serve, but also in the hearts of partners.
