About Us

Hope Partners

Hope Partners is a Christ-centered international ministry with a simple mission: To rescue children and transform their lives.

We fulfill this mission through one key strategy: We build Hope Centers in some of the world’s most desperately needy places.

We’ve rolled up our sleeves and established Hope Centers in a poverty-wracked area on the outskirts of San José, Costa Rica…in a daunting slum near Nairobi, Kenya…and in forbidding regions in northern India. In the slums of Barquisimeto, Venezuela, more than 400 children and moms in extreme poverty come to our center to find food, medical care, trauma counseling and spiritual guidance.

Hope Centers can also be found in Sri Lanka where 22% of Sri Lankans are undernourished or malnourished. Finally, displaced Ukrainian children and their families are looking for safe refuge, and their HOPE to live without trauma with a chance to rebuild their lives. Our Hope Center nearest Constanta, Romania is just 105 km from the border of Ukraine. Our Hope Center staff is ready to provide prayers, safe shelter, hot meals, hygiene supplies, fuel to keep warm, transport to safe areas, counseling support and more. Through acts of compassion, we can help in this immediate crisis.

In each of these locations we help the helpless and give hope to the hopeless.

In Jesus’ name and with his compassion we care for “the least of these” — the orphaned, abandoned, abused children who are left to fend for themselves in conditions so harsh and unforgiving that it defies description.

Our Mission

Hope Partners International is committed to rescuing children and transforming their lives. To do this, we go to places of extreme need and fulfill our mission, one child at a time. In the places where we work children suffer from hunger, danger, disease, abuse and threats of other kinds, some of them unspeakably dire. We strive to rescue these children and care for them in Jesus’ Name.

Our Strategy

Our primary strategy is to establish and operate what we call Hope Centers—hubs of ministry situated near impoverished areas. Each Hope Center has its own unique character and program, depending on local factors. But each one is boldly facing challenges and meeting needs.

At Every Hope Center…
