Children's Help Net Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded by parents of diverse backgrounds who share the bond of having successfully adopted children from Eastern Europe. During this experience, the founders became keenly aware of the plight of children in that region of the world, and the need to promote child welfare and the adoption of children.
CHNF provides humanitarian aid in the form of basic necessities and special projects.
