Miguel's Story

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.

FAQ's

When you choose to sponsor a child you may have many questions. Find information on some of the most frequently asked questions. Of course, if you need more information or have other unanswered questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
We take pride in offering sponsors regular communication from their sponsored child through email. These emails can be short updates on special milestones, cards and photos on special occasions, or hand-written letters from your child that we scan, translate, then email. We believe that communication is a key component of the relationship between a sponsor and their child.
Yes! Your sponsored child would love to hear from you and write back. Letters and pictures are a wonderful way to help him or her get to know you and your family. We will translate it and make sure your child receives it. After sponsoring a child you'll receive instructions on the best way to communicate with your child.

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.

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.

$ 120
per month

Helps provide 3 meals a day and the child's education.

Standard Sponsorship
$ 500

Complete Sponsorship
$ 1,000

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.

You can give your monthly donation through our online page or by check. Doing your contribution online is a convenient way to set up a recurring payment that is automatically deducted each month from your debit or credit card (don't worry...you can change this at anytime).
Absolutely! Hope for Tomorrow is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Any donation or sponsorship that you make will be tax deductible. At the beginning of the following calendar year, we'll mail you a statement of all the donations you made during the year that you can use to claim your tax deduction.
