Help us provide safe, loving homes where brothers and sisters in care can stay together for as long as they need – join us as a Friend of Homes of Hope today!

Nearly 7,000 New Zealand children are in foster care due to serious neglect or abuse and, despite best intentions, they are often separated from their brothers and sisters and can change families up to three times per year! We work to provide safe, loving homes where brothers and sisters in foster care can live together.

Your support enables us to:

  • provide safe, loving homes for vulnerable children from hard places
  • help keep brothers and sisters together whenever possible
  • provide the therapeutic care and support a seriously neglected or abused child needs to heal and become a great New Zealander

If you choose to support Homes of Hope you will be welcomed as a Friend and will receive:

  • provide safe, loving homes for vulnerable children
  • help keep brothers and sisters together whenever possible

How much should I give?

We are asking people like you to support Homes of Hope by donating a small amount on a regular basis. Many people ask us how much they should give. The answer is, of course, just as much as you feel able to. If you could manage $1 a day, about $30/month, to help us support these children, we would be so grateful, building collective giving to build resilient, happy children here in Aotearoa. This is just a suggestion and the amount you donate remains your decision.
