Our Why

Hands of Hope Adoption and Orphan Care Ministry was founded in 2007 by Mary Coombs and Suzy Roth based on their personal experiences visiting orphanages and adopting children. In 2010 it became a 501c3 non-profit corporation. There has always been a high value placed on utilizing volunteers in key leadership roles. In July 2012 the first part time employee was hired and the first full time employee was in 2016. We believe God's heart beats for these vulnerable children.

  • Orphans and widows are mentioned more than 60 times in the Bible.
  • The number of orphans has grown exponentially over the last 17 years from 15 million in 1990 to 143 million in 2007.
  • 80% of new orphans can be directly attributed to the spread of AIDS.
  • 90% of orphaned children are not adoptable, but 100% are "careable."

Our Impact

With God's help, in 2019 Hands of Hope impacted the lives of over 2800 children in foster care, over 180 children internationally, as well as many adoptive families.
