Hope for Home Ministries was founded in August 2008 by Daryl and Wanda Fulp. Having adopted three children with special needs internationally, their eyes had been opened to the plight of orphans and physically and mentally challenged children in developing countries, and they longed to do something to make a significant impact.
In the early days, Hope for Home was an advocacy ministry that shared the needs of these children with the church and sought to pair Christian families with children through adoption and leading short-term ministry trips to Guatemala. But in 2009 Daryl and Wanda felt God's call to something more. They placed their home on the market, sold most of their possessions, and moved themselves and their nine children to Guatemala in January 2011.
There, along with a team that God brought together, they established a rural village ministry that provides assistance to children witsh special needs. They also opened two family-based group home for children with special needs, Hogar de la Esperanza (Home of the Hope) and Hogar de la Esperanza II.
And from there ministry has grown, both in Guatemala and in Africa. Currently Hope for Home is working to open a second home in Guatemala and its rural village ministry will soon expand into seven of Guatemala's 22 departments, with long-term plans to establish ministry in every department. Meanwhile, a new village for children with special needs is in the works in Liberia, Africa, along with a sponsorship program for orphans and children at risk.
Step-by-step, God is blessing and building this ministry for his glory!
