About Compassion International

Boy and Girl of Compassion InternationalCompassion International was founded more than 60 years ago when Reve. Everett Swanson grew concerned over the number of orphans he saw living in the streets of Seoul following the Korean War. From his first efforts in starting a Korean Orphanage to creation of the program that would allow people back west to sponsor and support individual children with education, food, shelter, clothing and medical care, he created what is today Compassion International.

Today the team at Compassion International offer programs to the poorest children with the greatest need, devoted to those of all faiths, backgrounds, cultures, and races to ensure they can be lifted out of poverty. Partnering with individuals and businesses, Compassion International connects individual children across the globe who are in the greatest need, and is an organization Home Comfort USA is proud to be associated with.
