Holt International

The love we experience as children enables us to thrive. It fuels us. Molds us. Nurtures our developing minds.

At Holt International, we help orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children to thrive by finding families to love them. Families in the form of trained caretakers who assume the awesome task of nurturing children awaiting adoption.

And the adoptive families who will love and nurture children… forever.

Moved by faith and a firm belief that all children deserve permanent, loving homes, Harry and Bertha Holt began their lifelong mission in 1955. Overcoming legal and cultural barriers, they sought families for children orphaned by the Korean War.

With this act of love, two farmers from rural Oregon revolutionized international adoption.

Today, Holt International strives to uphold their vision: to find loving homes for children regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or gender.

Holt International is a Christian organization committed to expressing God’s compassion for children. While always upholding the highest ethical standards, we: Find and support permanent, loving families for children who are orphaned, abandoned or at serious risk of separation from their family; Provide services to ensure that children will grow and develop to their fullest potential; Lead the global community in advocating on behalf of the world’s most vulnerable children.
