The Source of Our Spark
Charlie Holt’s life ended abruptly after five short years. But his life was anything but small. It was the spark of a movement – a movement to heal hearts all over the world. Join us in our mission to turn tragedy into triumph for families everywhere.
What Can One Heart Do?
Can it stop countless families around the globe from being forced apart? Can it help orphaned children transition from at-risk to thriving? Can it make families whole again? We believe one heart can be a hero for many. Will it be yours?
Our Partnership Program is growing! Get updates on our work with Addis Jemari and A Glimmer of Hope in Ethiopia, and learn about our new partners, Kindermourn and The Still Place.
