Fostering Hope was established in 2013 to raise awareness of the challenges faced by children within the foster care system and provide opportunities to them while engaging the community in which they reside.
Foster children often contend with challenges unknown to their counterparts in traditional families. Among the consistently seen issues: physical and behavioral concerns, poor self-esteem, an over-riding sense of loss of a typical childhood, and isolation that comes from a fractured family environment. In response, Fostering Hope built its organization on three pillars of programming Community: Involvement, Health & Wellness, and Childhood Experiences by which foster children learn to navigate and in time, surmount the many obstacles that can influence their lives.
Fostering Hope reaches over 1,000 children a year with enriching programs, gifts, and connections to caring adults.
