Exciting News - Mission 1:27 is now Family Hope International !

Extreme poverty exists in Ethiopia. This has resulted in several million children becoming orphans. Families in extreme poverty are struggling to survive and often have no food to feed their children. Some parents have made the unthinkable decision to abandon their children to the streets.


Family Hope International was established to prevent this crisis by helping to preserve and empower the most vulnerable families on the verge of collapse. We don’t want to see one more family fall apart as a result of poverty!

OUR VISION is to prevent orphans by embracing, equipping, empowering and employing vulnerable families. 


Together we can see vulnerable families go from brokenness and helplessness to restoration and hope.

A Letter from our President,

Dear Sponsors, Donors, and Friends of Mission 1:27,


It’s hard to believe that we are already well underway in 2021! In spite of the challenges we all faced in 2020, I hope you are optimistic as I am that 2021 will be a great year!

Our Mission 1:27 Team has been quite busy over the last several months as we have worked to close out a successful 2020, and plan for a new year. We spent much time evaluating and discussing our vision and mission, core values, operations, branding, and social media presence.

One area in particular we discussed was how we can grow this organization and reach more needy families. We have been working with our social media partner to prepare to launch a digital media campaign to reach more potential supporters. One area of focus has been our brand awareness and name recognition. In this process, we discovered that there are several other organizations that go by the same name, Mission 1:27. This has sometimes caused confusion or difficulty with sponsors trying to connect with us.

Based on thoughtful evaluation we felt it was the right decision to change our organization’s name. We believe this change will help us to more clearly communicate who we are, what we do, and connect with more potential donors who have a heart for the extreme poor in Ethiopia!

Beginning this month, we will be known as Family Hope International!  

We have also updated our website address and PO Box mailing address.

You can now find us online at familyhopeinternational.org. Our existing website will also connect you to our new website. Our new address is PO Box 7616, Bonney Lake, WA 98391.
