Joining Together to Make a Difference

The Crisis

Indiana’s rate of child abuse and neglect is
over 2x the national average..
After the first year or first placement roughly
50% of foster parents quit.
Children who have aged out of foster care to ever earn a college degree is
less than 3% chance.

Vulnerable children in Indiana need loving, Christian families and these families need support.

The Solution

Everyone can do something. Your organization is invited to join a movement across Indiana so there is
Foster homes for every child
Adoptive families for every waiting child
Help for every biological family
Wraparound support for foster families

Below are some ways your business and/or organization can participate in bringing love and support to the children in Indiana. Please contact us if you have further questions.

County Donations

We assist local agencies with projects and events for foster families and children. You can make a difference by helping us fund these projects. You can even donate to a specific Indiana county and we will make sure those funds go to support vulnerable children in that county.

Hope Gifts

Is your business, church, or organization looking for a way to give back? Your group can bless foster children and their families this Christmas through our Hope Gifts drive!

*Please note, this drive takes place primarily in the month of November.

Supplies for Kids in Foster Care

Supplies are needed to distribute to kids in foster care and to equip DCS offices to create a friendly environment when children first enter care. You can make a difference by purchasing something off of our Amazon Wish List. Or you can do a supply drive to collect items that are always needed!

*Please consider making your purchase through Amazon Smile and selecting “Hands of Hope Adoption and Orphan Care Ministry” as your charity of choice. A percentage of every purchase you make on Amazon will be given to Hands of Hope to help vulnerable children!

CarePortal County Sponsorship

Your business or organization has the unique opportunity to deeply impact the lives of vulnerable children and families in crisis within your community through a nationally recognized technology platform called CarePortal. CarePortal is an online platform that brings the needs of at-risk children and families in your community to your attention.

Caseworkers uncover the needs, with a focus in Indiana on preventing entry into foster care and keeping children with their birth families or relatives. CarePortal makes local churches aware, giving them a real-time opportunity to respond. Businesses or organizations help provide needed financial resources to make this happen.

Your organization can help make this possible for families in our state.
