40% increase in the number of foster children in Marion County, Indiana in the past year. 50% of foster parents quit after the first placement because they did not feel properly supported. It is time for us to come together so that there will be MORE THAN ENOUGH in Indiana. More than enough foster families, more than enough adoptive families, more than enough support for foster, adoptive, and biological families. There are powerful possibilities when we all work together. Will you join us? ​Sign up below for further conversation.

What is the Hands of Hope Church Alliance? It is a relationship with Hands of Hope and other churches providing:
  • Consulting help on establishing or running your church orphan care ministry
  • Shared resources 
  • Networking among churches: Join us for a gathering of Church Advocates
  • Bridge between Department of Child Services/Licensed Child Placing Agencies & your Church
  • Opportunities to serve: Tangible ways those at your church can make a difference for local vulnerable children
  • Care Communities:  A church based model from Promise686 providing support for foster families. This is proven to be a significant support for foster families. We invite you to join us in supporting the foster families in your church & community! Send a representative from your church to training to learn all that is needed to implement this in your church. 
  • Care Portal: Connects local children and families in crisis with churches who can help. The initial pilot will be in northeast Marion County. Contact us to learn more.
  • Raising Awareness: We want to help local churches become aware of the foster care crisis and respond in order to help Indiana kids in foster care.
