A Child’s Hope International

Mission Statement

The mission of A Child’s Hope Int’l is to motivate and mobilize the church and the community to care for the orphans in their distress. This includes the children within U.S. foster care, the orphans of the world, and vulnerable children suffering from hunger, thirst, and poverty.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments 2017 was a record year with a production of 309 tons of high protein food - all packed by hand. Conducted 21 Public Sessions, 39 Special Sessions, and 4 Mobile Sessions which produced over 19,051 Hope Boxes™ containing 4.1M high protein meals, 1.8M gallons of clean drinking water, and over 48K copies of Challenge™. Nearly 13K guests attended these events, with many sold out at 400+ registrants. Sponsored the Sack Hunger event at Sam’s Club in which the community donated over 8 tons of rice for the impoverished children of Cincinnati. Donated 10 tons of high protein food to the Cincinnati Freestore Foodbank as well to those in KY and TN who needed our help. Over 10,000 orphans and vulnerable children a day—every day of the year—are receiving Hands Against Hunger™ food, clean drinking water supplies, and life giving hope. Over 1,000 volunteers helped produce 60 tons of high protein food plus provided clean drinking water supplies, new blankets, and other disaster relief items requested by our partner agencies in Texas, Florida, Dominica Island, Cuba, and Puerto Rico.
Current Goals Our goal is to supply high protein food, clean drinking water and hope for 10,000 orphans and vulnerable children a day every day of the year. And to accomplish that while maintaining a program expense ratio of at least 90%.
