Sponsor A Family

Every year, around 100,000 children are abandoned.

98% of them have special needs.

Children are left out in the cold because their families aren’t equipped to care for them.

By strengthening families, providing access to therapy and resources, training caregivers, and offering real life support for real life problems, children with special needs can grow up feeling safe, known, and loved.

Sponsor a family for just $40/month to help them KEEP THEIR CHILD and give them the consistent support they need.

Girl, born in 2015
Special Need: Autism

RuiRui's family

Hi, I'm Rui Rui! I live with my parents and my grandmother. They love me so very much and are doing everything they can do to help me thrive. But life isn't easy. I can't go to school, and it's hard for me to communicate. Even though I am already 7 years old, I can't say very many words. But I love people and I want to learn, and my parents are desperate for encouragement and community.

If you sponsor my family, I will get speech therapy every week! My family and I will get home visits every month. Hope Station staff will teach my parents more about my disabilities, and give them the relational and practical support they really need to take care of me at home!

Jun Jie
Jun Jie's Family

Boy, born in 2008
Special Need: Down Syndrome

RuiRui's family

Hi! I'm JunJie. I live with my mom, dad, older brother, and grandma. I go to a special needs school, but I also need therapy every week. My mom is my biggest hero, and she loves me so much. It's hard for her to take care of me sometimes though, because many people do not accept me the way I am. I love dancing and listening to music, but the local dance schools won't let me enroll in dance class because I have Down Syndrome.

If you sponsor my family, I will get therapy twice a week, I'll get a private dance teacher just for me, and my parents will get the emotional and practical support they need!

Xiao Hang

Special Need: Cerebral Palsy

RuiRui's family

Hi! I'm XiaoHang. I live with my mom, dad, brother and some other people in a one bedroom apartment. Both my parents need to work, and I can't attend school, so I stay home alone during the day. It's difficult for me because I can't move around the apartment without assistance. I also have trouble with speech and doing basic life skills. My parents love me so much, but it's getting harder for them to take care of me.

If you sponsor my family, we will get support visits every month, and I will get leg braces to help me walk more independently. Hope Station will help my parents to explore creative employment options, and they will get the emotional and practical support they need!

Long Long

Special Need: Cerebral Palsy

RuiRui's family

Hi! I'm Long Long. I live with my grandma in the countryside. My mom left me and my dad when I was a baby because they found out I have Cerebral Palsy. Ever since then, my grandma has been taking care of me. She runs our farm, manages our home, and takes care of me all by herself.  I am so glad I can live with family, but it's not easy to be out in the countryside away from all the resources.

If you sponsor my family, I will get some therapy equipment to make my home more accessible for me. My grandma will get support visits twice a month, and Hope Station will help her to know more about Cerebral Palsy and give her the relational and practical support she really needs to take care of me at home!

Jun Han
Jun Han's Family

Boy, born in 2014
Special Need: Autism

RuiRui's family

Hi, I'm JunHan! I live with my mom, dad, and little sister. When I was 2 years old, my parents started getting worried about my language development. They took me to a specialist and I was diagnosed with Autism. Around the same time, my baby sister was born, so my family couldn't afford to take me to therapy. On top of it all, my dad has health problems. Every week he has to go to the hospital for treatment. Neither of my parents have full time jobs, and finances are really difficult. Still, I'm so glad that my family has stayed together through it all.

If you sponsor my family, I will go to speech therapy every week! My family will get home visits every month. Hope Station will help my parents to learn more about Autism and give them the relational and practical support they really need to take care of me at home!

Hi! I'm Fu Yin. I live with my dad and my two older brothers in the city of Chengdu. We have a one room apartment where we do all our cooking, sleeping, living, and hanging out. I love making new friends, but I don't go to school yet. I haven't ever had therapy, but I'm eager to learn new things as long as I get to talk to other people while I'm learning! My family has experienced a lot of hard things. Both of my brothers have Thalassemia, so we have a lot of financial hardship because of their medical bills.

Zhen Fang
Zhen Fang's Family

Girl, born in 2012
Special Needs: Epilepsy, ADHD

RuiRui's family

Hi! I'm Zhen Fang. I live with my dad and my mom. Our family used to be homeless, because my dad had a hard time finding work and my mom struggles with mental illness. We finally were able to get some financial assistance from the government, so now we have a small apartment. But life still isn't easy. My dad works really hard to support me and my mom. I go to school, and I'm in 4th grade. But it's hard for me to focus, and my hands and feet don't function the same as the other kids. So it's difficult even to hold a pencil. I really love being around people, and playing ball is my favorite thing to do.

If you sponsor my family, I will get therapy every week! My parents and I will get home visits every month. Hope Station staff will teach my parents more about my disabilities, and give them the relational and practical support they really need to take care of me at home!

Boy, born in 2015
Special Needs: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

RuiRui's family

Hi! I'm Jun Xi. It's just my mom and me together, because my dad left us when I was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. My condition is a rare genetic disease, and it's degenerative. With every day, the muscles in my body are getting weaker and weaker. I probably won't live past my 35th birthday. It's really hard on both me and my mom. Right now, I'm still walking and talking, but as I grow up I'll need to start using a walker and then a wheelchair. My mom feels really lonely most of the time, and thinking about my future is so hard for her.

If you sponsor my family, I will get therapy every week and access to therapy equipment at home. My mom and I will get home visits every month. Hope Station staff will teach my mom more about my disability, and give her the encouragement and support she needs to take care of me at home!

Hi! I'm XinXin. I live in Chengdu with my parents. Our family's situation is different from other Hope Station families: Though i personally do not have any special needs, both my mom and dad are blind.
