Hands of Hope

Adoption and Orphan Care Ministry

Our Mission

Our mission is to uniquely and deeply love vulnerable children and orphans at home and around the world. We place a high value on going deep to change the trajectory of a child’s life. We educate on God’s heart for orphans and vulnerable children, motivate individuals to get involved, and support those who do.

Areas of Focus


Get children into loving families. The best place for any child is in a family.

Foster Care

Provide support so children have stability and hope.

Children’s Homes

Equip partner children’s homes so children can heal and thrive.

Key Values

Go Deep

Relationships matter. We want to change the trajectory of kids’ lives.

Seek Unity

Everyone can do something. There are powerful possibilities when we all work together.

Strive for Excellence

Do one thing well, then add more. Respond in a timely way to honor others.

Our Why

Indiana is in a foster care crisis with over 12,000 children with cases in the Department of Child Services. An estimated 153 million children worldwide are orphans. The numbers are overwhelming, but we believe that we can change the future one child at a time. God’s heart beats for these children as we see His call for us to care for orphans and widows over 60 times in the Bible. Everyone can do something to bring hope and love into their lives.

Our Impact

With God’s help, in 2023 Hands of Hope impacted the lives of over 4,900 children in foster care, over 115 children internationally, as well as many adoptive families.
