Our Service to Children

At Holt International, we seek a world where every child has the support and resources to reach their full potential — a world where every child has a loving and secure home. Around the world, we work toward our vision by providing individualized, child-focused services in three main program areas:

Family Preservation

Family Strengthening

We believe that children should grow up in the loving care of their families. That's why our first priority is always to strengthen and preserve struggling families, whenever possible. Through nutritional, financial, health, education and counseling services, we provide the tools and resources families need to grow stable and self-reliant — addressing the root causes of child abandonment, and creating a safe, supportive environment for children to grow and thrive.

Orphan and vulnerable child care

Orphan and Vulnerable Children Care

Through our global network of on-the-ground experts and partnerships, we ensure that children who have been orphaned, abandoned or separated from their families receive the highest quality care while we work to reunite them with their families or unite them with a loving adoptive family. We do this through a holistic program of medical, nutritional, educational and psychosocial services tailored to fit their individual needs and carried out in a nurturing environment.

Adoption Programs

Adoption Services

When adoption is the best option for a child, we first strive to find a domestic adoptive family in the country of the child's birth. When international adoption is the best route to a stable, loving family, our expert team of adoption professionals works across the U.S. to find the family best suited to care for each child's unique needs. And through pre- and post-adoption support and resources, we work to ensure lifelong success for both children and their families.


International Adoption

Around the world, so many children are growing up without families to love them and nurture their growth. And so many families are waiting with love to give. It is our mission to bring you together.


For $30 per month, you can help provide everything an orphaned or vulnerable child needs to survive today — and thrive tomorrow. With your support, we work to develop a holistic, individualized plan for every child in our sponsorship program. We partner with local schools, churches, child welfare organizations, government officials and individual sponsors like you to provide services that help struggling families grow stable and self-reliant, and to provide quality care to orphaned, homeless or displaced children. Together, we work to ensure all children can reach their full thriving potential.
