Hope For The Hungry is an interdenominational ministry dedicated to helping children worldwide and supporting missionaries who are living God’s call to “Share the Bread of Life With a Starving World”.
Hope for the Hungry is centrally located between Dallas and San Antonio, Texas. More specifically, our headquarters is located just off Interstate 35 approximately 60 miles north of Austin and 40 miles south of Waco.
Children’s Homes currently served by Hope for the Hungry are located in Bangalore, India Ferrier, Haiti and Guibert, Haiti. Plans for future homes are pending as God grows the ministry.
Currently, there are 30 missionaries in 17 countries in the Cooperative Ministries Division. Click here to learn more about our missionary families.
There are a number of ministry opportunities in the Belton area. For example, each week more than 30 college students work with children in low income housing developments.
As we minister in other parts of the world, we believe it to be essential that virtually all programs be directed by the men and women from the host country who have a vision to win their lost to Christ. As much, therefore, as possible, Hope For The Hungry will own no property in other countries and will endeavor to work through indigenous leadership. A good portion of our energies, therefore, is spent in developing and encouraging promising foreign-national Christian leaders.
The Upper Room Retreat Center is available for Christian organizations of up to 30 people for overnight visits. The facility may be used by groups of 50+ people for daytime activities. Because of ongoing seasonal commitments with Youth Camps and related ministries, the Retreat Center is not available to other groups during the months of March, June or July. To request a reservation contact us here.
100% of your $22 per month sponsorship goes directly to the home where it is used solely for the benefit of the children at the home. We do not withhold any funds for administrative purposes if they are designated for one of the Children’s Homes.
Hope for the Hungry believes that all charities must be accountable to the public. That’s why we follow standards set forth by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). We are also audited annually by an independent CPA firm and adhere to the highest Christian ethics and standards in financial accounting and reporting.
Founded in 1979, the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability is comprised of over 1,000 charitable, religious and educational organizations which are qualified for tax-exempt, nonprofit status. ECFA’s steadfast purpose is to enunciate, maintain and manifest a code of financial accountability, ethics and reporting which is consistent with enlightened and responsible Christian faith and practice.

Through constant evaluation and careful management, we are able to channel a large portion of our total income to ministry services. Also, each employee of Hope for the Hungry is responsible for raising his or her own support. Since no one on the staff is salaried, this enables the ministry to reduce the administrative budget accordingly.
No, we are not. In meeting the challenges before us, we are not guided by “organizational affiliation,” but by “affiliation with Christ.” Also, we endeavor to create an attitude of cooperation between mission organizations, churches, and individual Christians.
Yes. We often take mission trips to different countries. For further information, you may contact Jen Sutton.
