Thank you for your interest in our agency. We hope this general overview of our agency is helpful in answering some of your questions about our programs.
Hope For Kids is dedicated to serving the most disadvantaged infants, children, and adolescents by providing specialized foster care services from a Christian worldview. We believe that serving as a foster parent is a ministry. You are ministering to God's most special and needy children; those who have not been well cared for or loved unconditionally, those who are locked inside bodies which appear imperfect, and those who have suffered emotionally, physically, psychologically, and spiritually. As a Hope For Kids treatment foster parent you have the opportunity to expose children to God's love as you model Christian behaviors and values in your home, take children to church and youth group activities, and pray for their healing.
Don't miss out on making a child's future brighter!
When children's parents are unable to appropriately and adequately care for them, their safety, permanence, and well-being become the community's responsibility. Children deserve to be part of a family where they can be loved and nurtured unconditionally and have the opportunity to thrive as a healthy child.
Sadly, there are many children residing in hospitals, group homes and residential facilities because of the shortage of individuals and families willing to commit their heart and open their homes to these special children.
The goals of Hope For Kids are to strengthen and preserve kinship ties with the family of origin and to work toward successful family reunification. If that is not possible, we provide custodial and treatment services in the least restrictive, safe, nurturing home environment for children to heal and prepare for permanency.
Our parent training and on-going monthly support meetings will prepare our foster parents and their children for the fostering experience.
