HHMI started in January of 1991. Debbie Marshall and Chuck Fox, her father, traveled to Romania to adopt a child for Debbie and her husband Dan. They immediately recognized there was far more to do than the adoption of one child. The dire needs of the children and entire families tore their hearts open. Debbie was successful in adopting, but that was only the beginning of what now has been a twenty-one year journey.
Camp of the Good Shepherd
The dream to develop a Christian Camp and Retreat Center became a reality early in 1998 with the purchase of property in Lotrioara, Romania. The Camp of the Good Shepherd is now in its 15th year of operation providing orphans and children in desperate need with a Christian camping experience to cherish for a lifetime.

Home of Hope
HHMI recognized the need for additional transition homes for young women in potential crisis situations leaving the State Placement Centers and impoverished communities. Due to lack of education in the areas of basic life and job skills, the transition home offers a refuge to learn the most fundamental aspects of living. Additionally, they are provided the opportunity to develop a life long relationship with Christ.
- Our church supports Home of Hope through Project Serve making quilts and fundraising throughout the year.
