WE HELP LOCAL CHURCHES HELP VULNERABLE KIDS AND FAMILIES.
Every child deserves a chance of success, to receive unconditional love, and to belong to a family.
Hope Local helps vulnerable kids and families through advocation initiatives and training for local faith-based organizations. These organizations can then mobilize their group to take action.
What we do:● We recruit foster/adoptive families.● We find and develop support for foster/adoptive families.● We directly advocate for kids waiting for adoption. ● We serve vulnerable kids and families.
How we do it:We believe the local church is not only called, but also uniquely equipped to accomplish all of these initiatives. That's why we are working to inspire local churches to action and resourcing them for this work.
Our progress:● In just a few short years, we’ve helped over 100 families make the decision to get licensed to foster or adopt. ● We’ve seen over 400 volunteers commit to supporting foster and adoptive families in their community. ● We’ve helped over 75 kids find their forever families (that we know of). ● We’ve engaged with 62 different churches and seen 15 churches start new ministries or participate in at least one initiative that serves vulnerable kids and families.
What's next:We are working to connect with more churches to serve more families. We are adding initiatives and expanding our efforts to make sure every child has a chance to belong to a family.
