Ways to Give:

Child Sponsorship

Sponsorship is a rewarding and personal way to connect with the ministry of FHC. Our sponsors generously commit to financially supporting a child at FHC on a recurring basis (monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually).

A sponsor will receive a short biography and photos of the child they are sponsoring. Updates on the child’s development and progress are sent to the sponsor three times a year.

The suggested donation is $35 per month, although sponsors may give less or more, as they are able. Child Sponsorship donations are not used exclusively and entirely to support the sponsored child, but are used to ensure that all of the children are cared for appropriately.

Caregiver “Tia” Sponsorship

Over the years, our supporters and volunteers have been inspired by the love and attention that our Tias (caregivers) give the children at FHC. They often ask how they can show their appreciation and encouragement to the caregivers. Our Tia Sponsorship Program is a way to express support and thanks for the hard work and dedication of the women who care for the children at FHC.

Sponsors may commit to financially support a Tia at FHC on a recurring basis (monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually). A sponsor will receive a short biography and photos of the Tia they are sponsoring, a personal note from her from time to time, news of her family, how she is doing with her work, any prayer requests she may have, as well as activities and events taking place at the homes in Ecuador. These updates are sent to the sponsor three times a year.

A suggested monthly support donation is $50. Approximately 90% of every dollar is used to ensure that FHC pays all of our caregivers a competitive salary, all legally required employee benefits, training, continuing education, and more. About 10% of the funds donated to this program are set aside to provide a special gift or bonus for the sponsored Tías twice a year as a tangible expression of how much they are appreciated, such as a gift card or cash bonus.

Casa Esperanza (Hope Home)

Casa Esperanza exists as a ministry to offer love, caring and a dignified quality of life to children, adolescents and young adults with special needs who have either aged out of the Ecuadorian adoption program or are very likely to remain at FHC into adulthood due to the severity of their special needs.

Casa Esperanza donors will receive an update on the children and young adults in Casa Esperanza once every four months.  To make a donation to Casa Esperanza, click here.

General Donation

A general donation allows FHC the flexibility to direct your donation to where it is needed most. A contribution can be made on a one-time or recurring basis (monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual contribution). General donations are used for the daily operational costs of the ministry such as utilities, gas, vehicle repair and equipment maintenance, building maintenance, administrative and professional staff salaries.
