At Children’s HopeChest, our core values are summed up in James 1:27 – True religion undefiled before the Father is caring for widows and orphans in their distress.

Children’s HopeChest exists to glorify God by releasing the potential of orphaned and vulnerable children and their communities through partnerships that cultivate holistic transformation and sustainability.

Children’s HopeChest develops highly relational, Community-to-Community partnerships between Christian communities in North America and communities of orphaned and vulnerable children in 9 countries. We believe the most transformational, holistic, sustainable, and long-term change occurs when one community partners with another.

This is all accomplished through relationships. And really, the root causes of poverty are broken relationships. Through Christ, these relationships can be healed and real transformation can occur. Transformation also occurs in relationship. To that end, we are a hands on ministry that encourages involvement with children and those who care for them. We believe that all communities are transformed into Christlikeness through relationship.

It is through relationships that development – real, tangible projects that cultivate sustainability – can occur. Caring for children long-term includes cultivating a healthy community that is able to support, look after, and ultimately offer a chance to flourish.

“HopeChest has been a tool in the hands of the Lord to radically transform the
people who make up The River. With their help we have become a global minded people who spend our lives for others. In partnering with two different villages in two different countries, not only are we having Kingdom impact across the globe, our local impact has increased as more folks see the value of ministry
beyond themselves.”
