Founded in 1968, Hope Children's Home has rescued nearly 5,000 children 2-18. Most of these children have been discarded, abused, unwanted, or orphaned. Some of them have faced life situations that left them a little off track. Our purpose at Hope Children's home is to share Christ with the children and mold them into Biblically educated members of our future society. For over 47 years, Hope Children's Home has taken children in and tried to make a difference in their very impressionable lives. We feel that God has called us to help rebuild the broken lives of these children and to build the bridge, when possible, between home, parent, and child.

2013-12 12/16/2015 --Donor Advisory

Prior to 9/1/2016, Charity Navigator issued Advisories under the name CN Watchlist and Donor Advisory. For more information on the CN Advisory system click here. This charity was issued a DA.

This donor advisory was published on Wednesday, December 16, 2015

In accordance with our policy for removing Donor Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Donor Advisory for the Hope Children’s Home on January 14, 2016 because the issues that prompted the Donor Advisory have been resolved. Specifically:

  • Schedule O of 2012 990 explains that in October 2011 the board became aware of monies embezzled. Board identified that their controls were not sufficient to prevent their assets from fraud. To reduce the risk of fraud currently the organization has placed numerous safeguards in their accounting procedures. Their Executive Director has released this video explaining the situation and corrective steps the organization has taken. The auditor's letter referenced in his interview was also provided and is available here.

Charity Navigator had published a Donor Advisory on Hope Children’s Home because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:
