Yikes. Yes it does look a little intimidating, but we promise the paperwork is not as daunting as it seems at first glance. As we are sure you understand, there are precious children involved, so we have to “handle with care”. It’s so worth it, and absolutely life changing- we promise. And we are only an email or phone call away anytime you need some help filling something out. Just click here for contact info. So let’s get started.
HOPE Family Registration
If you have already registered to see the photolisting, skip this step and move down to Project 143 Orphan HOPE Program Application.
If you have not yet Registered to view the Orphan Children’s Photolisting, just click the link below and fill out the online Registration. Once complete, you will be provided a special password to unlock access to the Photolisting of the current children available to be hosted in the upcoming Project 143 Orphan HOPE Program. You don’t need to register more than once to view the photolisting.
PLEASE NOTE: Completion of the Registration does not obligate you to host.

HOST (HOPE) FAMILY TRAINING Registration: Training Required Once A Year
Yes, we know you are excited and have dozens and dozens of questions, but good news…we’ve gotcha covered. Project 143’s HOPE Family Training will answer all your questions and probably a bunch you didn’t even think about. While there is never a substitute for common sense, having literally hundreds of years of experience on just about every possible topic is such a blessing and incredible help in making sure you are prepared for your host child. We welcome the Host Family veterans to participate, but it’s required for families who have not previously hosted with Project 143. We have never had a session where even veterans didn’t learn something useful. You are about to embark on a life changing experience, both for your family as well as your host child(ren). As a participant in our program, families (BOTH PARENTS) who have not hosted with us before are REQUIRED to participate in our training class; conducted online and via a conference bridge. To accommodate schedules, regions and time zones, we will conduct 3-4 classes per season. An email will be sent to all host families providing you with all the details to sign up for a training class. Thank you again for your participation!
