History & Founder

Just before Christmas 1999, at the age of 52, Janet Smith traveled to China to become a first-time mother to a little girl from Hunan Province. Nine years later, in the spring of 2008, she established The Mother House Fund to inspire the work of creating local and global life-sustaining connections to mothers and their children throughout the world in the name of compassion, healing and hope.
