Financial Accountability 


 As a Christian organization, we work with God to be His hands, feet and heart to some of the most marginalized children in the world.  We have the privilege of doing this alongside financial donors.  

Our Board of Directors provides guidance and oversight to the projects and spending of the organization.  We know that every donation, be it large or small, is a gift of love to be used to better the lives of the children with whom we work. Our Board meets to establish policies, approve budgets, and review operational results and ministry accomplishments. 

We are extremely grateful for our donors whom we consider to be part of our extended ITHM family. This is a family that is changing the world.

ITHM has monthly operating costs which sustain our projects and programs. Often times, there are capital expenses, which we raise funds.  If someone donates towards a specific cause, we use that donation towards that cause.  


We subscribe to a written statement of faith which affirms our commitment to the evangelical Christian doctrine. Advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ through rescuing and equipping His children is the singular objective of our financial conduct.

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Our 990 is submitted each year through an outside firm, Randy Walker & Co.

Contributions to the ministry are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. In order to help our donors determine the tax-deductible portion of their gifts, we receipt all donations showing the fair market value of any goods or services provided to the donor.

Out of respect for each individuals' privacy, we do not sell or rent our mailing list to other groups wishing to use the names and addresses of our supporters. We maintain tight security on our list of friends and supporters.


Another year for the books. 


ITHM's Twenty Years of Growth. 


Jennifer Lawrence and her mom, Betty Phillips, founded ITHM in 1997 after Jennifer served in Romania for two years. Jennifer was passionate about helping the most desperate children. After serving for eight years in Romania and returning to the States, the opportunity came to serve some of the 14 million orphans in Africa. 

When Jennifer Lawrence started out as a young missionary, she had no idea how she would feed and clothe kids on a daily basis. God has led ITHM for the last 20 years, and we have seen hundreds of children helped through the team effort of donors and those of us working “on the ground.”

Johnny Lawrence joined ITHM after marrying Jennifer in 2009. He has assisted with work in the Sudan. Long before he and Jennifer married, he was offering valuable advice and assistance to ITHM. He is now the acting Vice President. 

As we enter into expansion, we have the same hope and faith that the Lord will continue to guide us in rescuing and equipping hundreds more. Hang on with us for this great adventure!
