About HOPE Foster Care & Adoption
HOPE Foster Care & Adoption is the private, faith-based foster care and adoption program of The Methodist Home.
The goal of HOPE Foster Care & Adoption is to recruit, train, and support caregivers as they provide children and youth with emotional and physical safety. The experienced, professional team of case workers at HOPE Foster Care & Adoption provides caregivers with intensive training to help build their skills and confidence in parenting children who have experienced trauma.
HOPE Foster Care & Adoption case workers are always available, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to offer support and encouragement. They also join in the celebrations of the children served through HOPE.
What is Foster Care?
Foster care is meant to be a temporary service for children who are not currently able to live with their families. Children and families in need of foster care services have experienced trauma and significant loss and require help as they work toward reunification.
Through HOPE Foster Care & Adoption, foster parents complete specialized training and are supported to meet the needs of children who have experienced trauma. Foster parents are also equipped with the tools and skills needed as they support birth families on the road to reunification.

What is Adoption?
Adoption is the process by which a child legally becomes a member of the family.
HOPE Foster Care & Adoption recruits potential adoptive parents to serve children who have had a difficult time finding their forever family. Children awaiting adoptive families through HOPE Foster Care & Adoption include:
- Large sibling groups of three or more
- Children with unique behavioral and emotional needs
Sadly, children within these categories are often overlooked by prospective adoptive parents and can linger in foster care for years.
