Hands of Hope

Make Your Impact With Foster Families Today

Hands of Hope is a non-profit based in Indiana focused on caring for foster families, supporting children's homes, and assisting adoptive families. 

As a campus ministry partner of the Fishers campus, Hands of Hope offers two ways for you to get involved in caring for vulnerable children: 1) Join a Care Community to support foster families, or 2) Join the CarePortal and support the practical needs of families

Offer support to foster families Care Communities

Nationally, 50% of foster families quit either after the first year or after their first placement, primarily because they didn’t feel supported. The Care Communities model has been proven to retain up to 95% of those foster parents.

Care communities are teams of 6-8 people that wrap around a foster family. They offer emotional, spiritual, and practical physical support. It can be as simple as delivering one meal a month to a foster family, watching a child one time a month, or organizing the team. Volunteers can choose which role(s) fits them best. Care Community volunteers will be assigned a family that is close to you geographically.

Provide practical help to foster families CarePortal

Help meet the practical needs of vulnerable families in our community through the CarePortal with Hands of Hope.

CarePortal bridges the gap between children in need and churches who want to help. The families and needs (ex: home repair projects, bringing groceries, cribs, or bedding) are identified through the Department of Child Services and entered into the database. A Grace representative assesses the needs and communicates the opportunities to you through monthly emails.
