What We Do

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.

Where We Work

At Holt, we go to the hardest-to-reach and most under-resourced places to give orphaned, abandoned, abused and marginalized kids everything they need to reach their full potential. We work in 14 countries, including the U.S., and we love, serve and care for all children and families no matter their religion, race, ethnicity, culture or any other difference.

  • We meet people where they are, and believe all people are equal.
  • We serve children and families through in-country partnerships to ensure their needs are met within their cultural context.
  • We leverage local expertise and build local capacity to ensure our services are as effective as possible.
  • We develop long-term, lasting relationships with every child, family, orphanage and community we serve, and will be there for as long as it takes to create systemic, sustainable change.

Ways to Partner

At Holt International, we value our strategic partners and their commitment to work alongside us in pursuit of a world where every child can thrive. We would love to learn how we can partner with you in a way that supports your brand and corporate social engagement goals, while supporting children and families in 14 countries around the world!
