Fostering Hope


We change the lives of children in foster care by building an extended family of volunteers, faith communities and businesses to support them and their foster parents. Trauma from abuse and neglect haunts children through adulthood and places them at a disadvantage in life. We level the playing field and help put them on a path to productive citizenship.


A “system” can provide for physical needs and offer safety, but it cannot love. This explains why half of all inmates and a third of chronically homeless adults were formerly in foster care. We believe that by providing unconditional love, acceptance and support to these children, we not only change lives but impact a crucial social determinant that can change these dismal statistics.
