Once an abandoned building, the headquarters of New Hope Foundation has cared for over 675 children. This facility opened in 2003 with 16 beds to care for orphaned children who had conditions that required surgery. Dr. Joyce and Robin Hill arranged and found funding for those surgeries.
Eventually, the number for beds increased to 54, and for a total of 16 years, children from orphanages all over China came to this home for help with their physical conditions. They were given the medical and surgical care they needed, and also found hope, love, and a safe environment. Countless individuals and organizations generously supported this work.
Hope Foster Home Shunyi was the first name of this home. Shunyi is the name of the district of Beijing. In February 2007, it was renamed to be the Hope Healing Home. For several years, Love Without Boundaries helped fund and find children for the 18 bed Heartbridge Rehabilitation Unit located inside the Hope Healing Home. Later during the partnership with Show Hope, the home was called the Beijing Care Center.
Today this home is called Daniel’s Hope Healing Home Administrative Offices. It is named in memory of Daniel, who was the first child admitted here who later passed away. Its early name, Hope Healing Home, has been reinstated to honor its long function as a place of healing that offered hope to over 675 children in as close to a home environment as possible.
In 2019, all the children in this Hope Healing Home were required to return to their home orphanages due to new regulations. The New Hope Foundation main offices continue to operate here. Although no children are cared for in these rooms now, the administrative tasks allow the other locations to operate. The memories of those hundreds of little lives seem to echo in the relatively empty halls and rooms. Each life was an infinitely precious gift for that season and a reminder of the current hope the other children have who are still in our care.
