Introduction
Rumah Hope was started in 1994 as a social ministry of Good Hope Lutheran Church, ELCM in aid of 5 needy children and as a sanctuary for abused, neglected and underprivileged children between the age of 5 to 7 years old. Presently the Home has 52 children.

After 4 years, the Home moved from an old rented bungalow in Old Klang Road to a new home in Paramount Garden, Petaling Jaya. The construction of the Home was made possible thanks to generous contribution from the public and various corporate bodies. The Home has been granted Tax Exemption status by the Ministry of Finance and it is registered with Registrar of Societies and the Selangor Welfare Council. It is governed by a Management Committee that comprises members from Good Hope Lutheran Church and other churches under the Evangelical Lutheran Church Malaysia together with individuals from privates companies. All the Management Committee members are active in public life and are ardent supporters of various public welfare organisations.

Rumah Hope aims to provide a suitable social setting with physical and emotional care to children who have been deprived of these necessities in life. The Home aims to:

  1. Provide a haven (health care, shelter, education and social interaction) to physically, emotionally and psychologically scarred children.
  2. Provide security and comfort to these children who have never experience tenderness and loving care.
  3. Provide the opportunity to reconcile parent and child through counseling and therapy.
  4. Provide the chance of wholesome education in government schools.
