NTF-Home of Hope




The Home of Hope is a service oriented effort working in The People's Republic of China.

We welcome people interested in volunteering their service to apply for a "term of service" at our facility in China. 

It is our desire that your visit to China and the Home of Hope orphanage will be one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have.  Your safety and well being is our major concern and in accordance with Chinese law it is also the prime responsibility of the Next Towns Foundation - Home of Hope.

There are many and varied rules and regulations governing the type of methods allowed to serve in China.  There are also reporting agencies the China government requires be notified when visitors come to help in the NTF - Home of Hope.  Consequently it is important the following form be filled out in it's entirety.  Much of the information will remain confidential in the NTF files but some of the information must be reported to the local Security Bureau of China.
