What Sets Holt Apart
More than 20 years ago, Holt began working with the Chinese government to develop model foster care programs providing family-like alternatives for children in institutional care. The model was founded on the philosophy of affectionate, attentive care to nurture children's growth while they await permanent families. Over the next two decades, Holt replicated its child-centered model throughout China. Through the years, Holt has served over 50,000 children and families through adoption, foster care and other child-welfare services.
Holt strives to build trust and partnership with the Chinese government and orphanage administrators to improve the lives of children. Holt International Foundation of China is one of the only organizations based in the U.S. and legally registered in China to provide in-country child welfare services as well as adoption services.
