Why Choose Hope & Home
Love to Nurture Training
All Hope & Home foster parents receive Love to Nurture training for free! Our gentle approach to raising kids has received praise from state officials and is just one reason why our foster parents have such successful relationships with the children they care for and, in many cases, adopt.
“Ta’s Place”- Our Very Own Playground
Foster Care Plus
Soft Lights and Beautiful Murals
Many people who come to Hope & Home do so under very difficult circumstances – whether it’s a child who was just separated from their family or a couple who’s suffered the heartbreak of infertility and are looking at their adoption options. We have intentionally designed the interior of our building to feel warm and inviting so all can be as comfortable as possible.
It costs Hope & Home thousands of dollars to certify just one foster family. For this reason, some agencies prohibit their foster families from adopting any of the children they care for to prevent the families from “retiring” and quitting foster care.
At Hope & Home, fully half of our families each year will “go inactive” because they have adopted and their households are complete! We celebrate every family who gives a child a “forever home” through adoption, and we honor their permanent place in our extended family.
