Hope and Homes for Children

No Child Will Be Left Behind

Every child in an institution dreams of having a loving family and a home of their own. Our Big Idea will make dreams come true for 500 children, and many more in years to come. We will move children out of orphanages and into loving family homes. When the doors close no child will be left behind.

Most children in orphanages are not orphans but victims of poverty and a lack of support for families in difficult situations. Institutions have been shown to be very damaging to children. In order to grow up into happy and healthy adults with good life opportunities, each child needs the love and care of a family. Children who grow up in institutions have a high chance of spending their adult life in abusive relationships, living in poverty or in prison. High numbers will commit suicide.


Hope and Homes for Children is closing child institutions and finding local families for children in Central and Eastern Europe and we will soon close our first institution in Africa. Our objective is that 'no child will be left behind' and we find a place for every child, no matter what problems they have.
