The Crisis

As of 2017 Indiana’s rate of children in foster care was over twice the national average. Roughly half of foster parents quit after the first year or first placement. There is less than a 3% chance for children who have aged out of foster care to earn a college degree at any point in their life.

Vulnerable children in Indiana need love and support.

The Solution

Everyone can do something. Your business or organization is invited to join Hands of Hope in making a difference so that there is
MORE THAN ENOUGH...
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.

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.
