Your sponsorship donation is combined with those of other sponsors to provide for the needs of all of the children in our care in Haiti, which in turn, directly impacts your sponsored child. Your donation provides things like safe and secure housing, three meals a day, medical care, education, clothing, caregiver salaries, and more. Your giving makes it possible for us to continue providing a home of light, hope, and love for a precious child who has been orphaned or abandoned. It changes their life!
SPONSOR A CHILD
CHANGE A LIFE!
You can change the life of a child in Haiti. Children’s Hope cares for 50 children at our children’s home in Haiti.
These are all children from hard places or difficult situations. At Children’s Hope, they are secure, they are loved, and they have the opportunity to thrive. They are taught God’s great love for them and that He has a good plan for their life.
The monthly giving of our child sponsors make this all possible. As a child sponsor, you are matched up with one of our children. You receive a sponsor card, photo updates, and a Christmas card each year.
Meeting the Needs of our Children
Your support as a sponsor helps us meet all of the needs of our children. It provides things like:
A child is considered “fully sponsored” once they reach $350 in monthly support. This allows us to fully provide for their needs. Most of our children have multiple sponsors in order to fully provide for their care.
Partial sponsorships start at $25/month.Get started today
Child Sponsorship FAQs
How much is child sponsorship?
We do not have a set amount for sponsorship. Most sponsors give between $25 and $100/month – with a “full sponsorship” for a child considered to be $350/month. Most of our children have multiple sponsors in order to reach full sponsorship, although we do have some partners who are giving full sponsorships. Your monthly sponsorship of ANY AMOUNT is deeply appreciated and will help change the life of a child!
How much of my donation is given directly to the child?
No money is given directly to the child. 100% of sponsorship giving supports our children’s home program in Haiti and helps meet the financial needs there, ensuring the continued care of your sponsored child.
Why does it cost more to sponsor a child here than some other sponsorship programs?
As a residential children’s home in Haiti, Children’s Hope fully provides for the children placed under our care. While many great sponsorship programs allow you to help support certain critical needs for children, Children’s Hope is meeting 100% of the needs of the children under our care- housing, food, clothing, medical care, education, caregiver salaries, and more. We are also committed to holistic and excellent care of our children, and to ensure that, we maintain very low staff to child ratios. We realize that most cannot join us with a full sponsorship and a vast majority of our sponsors help us with a gift in the $25-$100/month range.
What happens with children that are not fully sponsored?
All of the children under our care receive the same holistic and excellent care. Children’s Hope is able to fill in the financial gaps for children not fully sponsored from general donations that come in, but our hope is for every child to eventually be 100% sponsored.
What can I expect to receive as a child sponsor?
As a child sponsor, you will receive an updated sponsor card each year with your child’s photo, an updated annual group photo, a Christmas card, and access to a private Facebook page for your sponsored child where we post occasional updates. We are currently considering some additional possibilities to facilitate a deeper sense of connection.
Can I send Christmas and birthday gifts to my sponsored child?
At this time, we are unable to send Christmas and birthday gifts on your behalf to your sponsored child. It is logistically difficult for us to ship things regularly from the U.S. at this time, but we also are mindful of our children receiving equitable gifts and treatment. However- we do make sure that birthdays and Christmas are celebrated in special ways! On each child’s birthday, we provide a cake for them to share with their housemates. We also have a big Christmas party each year where all of our children receive special gifts appropriate to their age. It’s a highlight of their year! Your support makes it possible for us to provide the birthday cake and the Christmas party, and we have churches and other groups who give special donations to help cover the cost of the Christmas gifts for our staff and kids.
Can I write to my sponsored child, and are they able to write me back?
At this time, we are not able to facilitate communication back and forth with your sponsored child. If that changes, we’ll be sure to let you know! We do ask that you regularly pray for your sponsored child and know what a difference your giving and prayers are making in their life.
What if I ever need to change or cancel my sponsorship?
You can cancel or adjust the amount of your sponsorship at any time. You can contact us at email@example.com and we’ll be happy to take care of that for you.
How long will my sponsorship last?
Our sponsorship program allows you to continue supporting your child as long as they are under our care. For most of our children, this will be sometime between the age of 18-21 depending on their situation. Sometimes, Haitian Social Services will ask for our help to reunify the children under our care with a relative or other caregiver. It’s always sad to see children leave us, but also a joy when they are able to reunite with family in healthy settings. If your sponsored child leaves our care, we’ll let you know that and connect your support with a different child.
