IN THE LAST 16 YEARS, LSM…
…Assisted over 8,000 U.S. families in their adoption journeys. The operations in Haiti have dramatically grown to 20 Homes of Hope providing permanent families for 240 children. There are now multiple businesses in Haiti providing long-term sustainability. In Ethiopia, programs are assisting many young single mothers with vulnerable children to find employment, healing and thus hope for their future.
