About Hope House Intl.

It is estimated that there are around 200,000 orphans living in the Dominican Republic. Because of extreme poverty, the Dominican is considered one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Drug abuse, alcoholism, sexual and physical abuse and neglect are prevalent on the island of Hispaniola and, as a result, many children are left without parents and homes.


Living in the Dominican Republic since 2006, the Braisted family felt the opportunity had arisen to begin caring and providing for these children — many of whom have never experienced the proper care necessary for survival, let alone the bond of belonging to a family.


It is the vision of Hope House to provide a long-term, loving home for children who have been abandoned, abused and neglected. Hope House is designed to invest in the child’s future, not just by providing a meal or a place to sleep, but also through education, psychological therapies, extracurricular activities and placing them in a safe environment, giving them the opportunity to experience love and acceptance within a family unit.
