Among it's many care services and annual outreach events, Hope House sponsors Baby Olympics to spotlight the joy of healthy, growing children as the hope of our world's future. Children of sometimes diverse and struggling people groups come together to enthusiastically compete in 10 events. Parents and other spectators are delighted by the tiny athletes' passion and spirit, and are filled with hope anew.

Some agencies and churches appreciate a short presentation to their members. Hope House has a 5 minute video/DVD of a Baby Olympics, as well as a 20 minute DVD, "The Story of Hope House", which also tells how the work was founded. Hope House can provide speakers to briefly present how your agency can participate, and how the Baby Bottle Campaign works.
