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 14th year of operation providing orphans and children in desperate need with a Christian camping experience to cherish for a lifetime.

We Need Your Partnership!

Summer is fast approaching! The cost of providing food for one child for a week of respite at Camp of the Good Shepherd is $50.00. We invite you to join with us in support of this marvelous opportunity to embrace a child in need with the love of Christ. We appreciate your prayerful consideration of providing a scholarship for one or more campers and/or funds for general camp supplies and development.

Celebrating Alina!

Alina, is our 5th University graduate from Home of Hope, but our first from a Placement Center! She is the only young woman from the Placement Centers in our county in 2010 to go to University.
Alina was placed in the Placement Center system as a baby after her mother abandoned the family and her father could not care for her. Alina recently shared her testimony of neglect, abuse, numerous beatings by both staff and children, and the transformation of hope and life found in Jesus. Alina benefited from HHMI dental, optometry, Christmas, Easter, and Camp programs while in the Placement Center system and 4 years ago when she finished at the Placement Center at Orlat she came to Home of Hope in August 2010.

At Home of Hope Alina was encouraged to pursue her passion of social work and has now graduated from the Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work. Of the 30 students that started the social work program only 18 graduated this year! Alina will spend the next 6 months completing her practicum intern hours and in February of 2015 will take the exam for her social work license and then her dream is to work in a Placement Center and to BE the change she knows the system needs. Alina will be earning her volunteer hours this summer at Camp of the Good Shepherd. We are so very grateful for each and every person that has sponsored the Home of Hope to provide for this deserving young woman.
