Children's Hope Chest

Children's Hope Chest is also a sponsorship organization, but their approach is unique. Hope Chest links communities from the United States and Canada to communities in Russia, several countries in Africa, Moldova, India, Guatemala, and Haiti. These community partnerships foster relationship building through letter writing and yearly visits to the care point or orphanage.

Hope Chest typically partners orphanages and care points with churches, businesses and Christian communities such as blogs, online groups, book clubs, and small groups. The goal is "holistic, sustainable change in the poorest communities."

Here's how you can get involved...

*Work with an existing sponsorship partner or prayerfully research the ways to lead your church or small group to sponsor a community.

*Hope Chest has become involved in recent years in fighting against the sex slave industry. Read here about the ways you can learn more and become a part of ending this heinous injustice against girls and women across the globe.

Here is a snapshot of how designated funds are used...

Tom Davis, the CEO of Hope Chest, wrote the book Fields of the Fatherless. It is a beautiful reminder of why we should embrace the call of serving widows and orphans. This interview gives a snapshot of the heart of Hope Chest. I have heard Tom tell this story of the little girls in the orphanage several times, in big group settings and in the living room of a friend, it gets me every time.
