The Family and their Ministry ID 216
We are Matt and Marianne and in 2011, we founded Legacy of Hope Foundation with our (at the time) 5 children. As the first family in our organization, we’ve cared for countless children over the years. Today, our children include: Garrett (2001) – starting college in August, Harrison (2004), Emma (2005), Carolyn (2006), Donnie (2006), Anthony (2011), Ashlyn (2013), Brenda (2013), Isabella (2014), Kaleb (2014)
Marianne runs all the in-country programs and services while also homeschooling our 5 youngest children. Matt overseas all of the back office functions of Legacy of Hope such as fundraising, accounting and marketing. He also serves as a tentmaker, working in Digital Marketing.
Legacy of Hope Foundation seeks to provide ‘A Safe and Loving Child for Every Child’. All of our programs and services operate with a family style of care. We take a holistic approach to orphan care, providing spiritual, physical, emotional, educational and social care to children across the full spectrum of programs: Crisis Care, Transitional Care, Foster Care, Family Preservation.
We are specifically seeking the assistance of a Nanny (or Nannies) to assist with homeschooling, and basic child care for some of the younger foster children. Honduras will likely not open their schools until calendar year 2022 (or later) and many of these children need additional adults to provide individualized instruction and supervision.
