Exploring Foster Care

Providing Resources to Help You

Whether you have yet to start, are in process, or have completed your process to become a Foster Parent, Hands of Hope is here to help provide assistance. Below are resources for those exploring becoming foster parents.

Getting Started

It can be hard to know where to begin with foster care. What is involved? Is it better to go through Department of Child Services (DCS) or a Licensed Child Placement Agency (LCPA)? We’re here to help as you get started.

Every Child Symposium

A wealth of resources are also available at the Every Child Symposium on March 8, 2025. Come be encouraged and educated through amazing keynote and breakout speakers.

A partner of the Every Child Indiana Network

We’re excited to announce our partnership with the Every Child Indiana Network. Every Child Indiana is working to meet the specific needs of each child in Foster Care by increasing the number of foster homes available & connecting more volunteers with local opportunities to serve.
