HOPE Foster Care

hope-logo

Vulnerable children are entering foster care at an alarming rate in our community. These children have experienced abuse or neglect and need to live in a nurturing, loving home where they are safe and can heal. Foster families offer the hope found in security, stability, and love. Could your family be a source of hope for our community’s children?

Foster Care Programs Include:

  • Respite Care
  • Traditional Foster Care
  • Therapeutic Foster Care

Initial Steps to Becoming a Foster Parent:

  • Attend a one-time informational meeting to learn more about the process
  • Complete 24 hours of pre-service IMPACT training over an 8-week period
  • Participate in a Home Study process to identify the best match for your family and children in need
  • Have favorable drug, background, CPS, and physical screenings

You can also offer HOPE today by being part of a foster family’s support team!

  • Invite a representative to speak in your church or community organization to help multiply the quality foster homes in our community
  • Provide practical support for foster parents though cooking, cleaning, laundry, or yard work
  • Babysit for foster parents so they might invest in their marriages through date nights
  • Provide child care for single foster parents who need support when a child is sick and needs to be out of school
  • Help transport children to therapy or medical appointments, offering friendly assurance for the child and assistance for the foster parent
  • Give the gift of your time to children who could use extra tutoring in school or life skills

Informational meetings will be held the second Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. Contact Loren Rae Grace to RSVP.
