Miguel is a young teenager who has lived in an orphanage since he was 5. Prior to that, he lived on the dangerous streets of Guatemala. Until Hope for Tomorrow started working with him in 2008, he had never had any educational training and at age 10 didn't even know how to read and write. After more than a year of having a personal tutor get him caught up with the basics, in 2010 he worked through 4 grades of material in one school year! This year, he officially started his last year in High School!
Despite the hardships he has had to endure over the years, he has one of the sweetest spirits I have ever known. It is evident that inside he continues to deal with the pain and anger from his early experiences, but he is a fighter and won't let anything hold him back. The loving environment of the Children's Home is helping him deal with these emotions and become a great man of God.
What Sponsors Give
By sponsoring a child at Hope For Tomorrow, you'll help change the lives of children by providing:
Your sponsorship helps provide nutritious food, clean water, and a safe and loving environment.
We believe a quality education is important for their future to break the cycle of poverty.
We go beyond basic health care and provide access to individual therapy for those that need it.
Best of all, in addition to supporting your sponsored child, your monthly support also assists the other children who live at the home.
What Sponsors Get
Beyond the joy of knowing your sponsorship is impacting the lives of orphaned, abandoned, and at-risk children, as a sponsor you'll receive:
Regular updates and communication from your sponsored child.
A tax-deductible receipt of your giving.
Our yearly calendar featuring pictures of all the children.
We know that becoming a sponsor will be as life-changing for you as it will be for your sponsored child.
Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans.
What type of communication will I receive from my sponsored child?
Will I be able to write to the child I sponsor?
What is a child's "Sponsorship Progress"?
Hope for Tomorrow Children's Home provides around the clock care to orphaned, abandoned, and at-risk children. This includes nutritious meals, a comfortable home, a high-quality education, health care, regular activities, therapy for those that need it, loving workers to take care of the children, and much more. This means the cost for a child to be in our children's home program usually exceeds what one individual can commit to on an on-going basis.
Because of this, we allow multiple people to sponsor a child until that child is 100% sponsored. This brings a unique sense of community and collaboration to our sponsorship program as people around the world join together to support a child.

How much does it cost?
You can sponsor a child for any amount, but to make sponsorship as easy as possible, we have created 4 sponsorship tiers. These tiers help give a sense of the impact your sponsorship makes.
Helps provide 2 meals a day for a child.
Helps provide 3 meals a day and the child's education.
Helps provide 3 meals a day, education, and health, therapy and monthly activities for the child.
Helps covers the majority of the costs for the child to live at our home including housing and staffing.
Since Hope for Tomorrow Children's Home is a home and not an after school program, or a one-meal-per-day soup kitchen, it is necessary to provide for our children on a 24/7 basis, just like you provide for your own children.
Regardless of your sponsorship amount we make sure all the children receive 3 complete nutritious meals a day, a comfortable home to sleep in, year-round schooling, immunizations, special monthly activities, therapy for those that need it, dedicated workers to take care of the children, and much more.
