Founded in 2001, by the Church of Christ in the United States, Hope Children’s Home offers loving care to abused and neglected children of Guyana. Some of these children are severely abused and/or molested while others are left alone for days with no one to care for them. A number of children are abandoned at birth, while others are abandoned by parents who have immigrated to other countries in search for a better life. Still more children are left orphaned resulting from the death of one or both parents.
Hope Children’s Home houses up to 50 children ranging from a few weeks old to 18 years of age. The children are fed and clothed and given a clean, caring and safe environment. Every effort is made to reunite children with relatives and to place those that have reached 18 years of age in a suitable location.
The mission of Hope Children’s Home is to develop the whole child by training the mind, character and spirit of each child to achieve his or her full potential in life. Hope encourages the awareness in children of their individual skills and abilities. Hope promotes commitment to self-betterment by upholding standards of: trustworthiness, respect, fairness, caring, and good citizenship. Hope teaches children to be in control of their choices, thus preparing them for personal responsibility throughout their life.
