Identifying and training best practices in residential orphan care
Who We Are
Our mission is to transform the lives of high-risk orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) by improving the quality of care at residential facilities. We advocate for the residential care model as the setting that provides the best opportunity for these children to become well-adjusted, self-sufficient, and productive members of their communities.
Hope Institute’s training reflects Hope Unlimited for Children’s extensive experience providing transformational care for high-risk OVC in Brazil.
Here's the Problem
Millions of kids are growing up in orphanages, and they are not growing into successful adults. Substance abuse. Prostitution. Incarceration. Homelessness. Suicide. Most of them are failing by any social measure, and their children often end up in the same alternative care system that failed them.
What We Do
Love is not enough. Children also need structure, stability, security. Children growing up in group living situations need a safety net when they age out, and a real chance to succeed as independent adults.
Hope Institute partners with OVC care providers. We teach research-driven strategies that have proven successful in the field, and we adapt the training experience to each unique program.
