Every person matters to God therefore every person matters to us. Research shows that nearly 50% of Foster Parents will walk away from fostering after the first year because they feel ill-equipped and unsupported. Hope Connects helps combat that statistic by supporting every Foster & Adoptive family in our community. Not only are we connecting foster families with other foster families we are also connecting an entire community to them. We serve these foster families with love and dignity while at the same time helping them feel equipped for the task at hand. Although we are in a small rural town Hope Connects serves nearly 30 Foster and Adoptive families annually and is continuing to grow.
