How we work

Forget orphanages. Children need family. We ensure every child has a loving, stable home.

Urgent Winter Appeal

Help keep children #SafeFromHarm

Families. Not Institutions.

Read our flagship publication, which builds on 30 years of experience driving care reform globally.

Hope and Homes for Children is an international charity that works to stop the institutionalisation of children.

Instead, we fight for every child to feel the love and belonging of a safe family home.
