Hope House Children's Home is seeking a "Forever Home" for 60 destitute hill tribe children.
Hope House Children’s Home is a rescue home of Projects for Asia Charitable Foundation. Within our walls live 60 children ages 5 – 18. Our home serves disadvantaged hill tribe children who are subject to poverty, abandonment, being left as orphans, and parents serving long sentences in the country’s jails due to drug dealing. They have no future or hope and often their very lives are in danger. At Hope House, these high-risk children are protected from the threat of being trafficked.
In 2016, Hope House was forced to move from its rental facility of 10 years due to the property being sold. We relentlessly scoured the area around Chaing Mai for an affordable place to relocate Hope House’s 60 children. Uprooting a ministry involving many children and staff is no simple task. We found an abandoned resort that was immediately available to rent long term and proceeded to build dormitories, a kitchen and a pavilion with the help of volunteer building teams.
Together with our children, we refurbished the old entry building into offices and a children’s library. In 2017, we built our first school bungalows. Churches and individuals contributed to the cost and church volunteers helped with the construction.
Now, in 2019, the landowner wants to sell the property to our foundation. He is allowing us to pay one partial lump sum and then pay off the remainder of the property in installments over 20 years, converting our rental payments to a pay-to-own agreement. This is a fantastic opportunity for Hope House. We own the new buildings that we have built on the rental property and now we can own the land they sit on. Permanence for the ministry of Hope House is our long-standing prayer request. It is to this end that we are initiating this "Forever Home" Campaign to purchase the Projects for Asia Hope House land and provide a secure home base from which our children will not have to experience the instability of being uprooted again.
We need to raise $130,000 before October 31, 2019.
