Mission Statement

Hope Unlimited rescues and cares for street children in Brazil - kids living in the streets in situations of imminent risk. They come to live in our rural youth centers far from the devastating influences of their past. We provide them with guidance from a caring staff, education, training in marketable job skills, and a generous measure of God's love. Our goals are for each one to experience Christ's salvation and become a fulfilled member of society, positively impacting other lives and filled with unlimited hope for a brighter tomorrow.


Hope Unlimited was founded in 1991. The organization's U.S. office is located in southern California and is active in two states in Brazil, Sao Paulo and Espirito Santo. Hope Unlimited's model program, The City of Youth, resides on a 35-acre campus in Campinas, Brazil. The site includes dormitories, classrooms, vocational training facilities, a farm, recreational facilities, offices, and a chapel. The model has expanded to include a satellite facility for girls (Hope Ranch) and a graduate homes, located an hour away in Sao Paulo. Hope's newest campus is called Hope Mountain. The mission of Hope Mountain is to give new life to the street kids in the cities of the state of Espirito Santo, especially the incarcerated youth of Vitoria. Conditions in the prison are worse than the streets, with minimal sanitation and terrible overcrowding. These conditions breed more crime, worsening rather than rehabilitating prisoners. Thankfully, the state is eager to release well-behaved young offenders to Hope's care. Modeled after the City of Youth program in Campinas, Hope Mountain is a comprehensive residential campus with dormitories, a cafeteria, classrooms, a working farm, an infirmary, and recreational facilities.
