Hands of Hope uniquely and deeply loves orphans at home and around the world. They believe the best place for any orphan is in a family so they do all they can to support adoption, including financial support for Indiana families. Knowing that not all orphans are adoptable but all can be cared for, they partner with Children’s Homes both locally and internationally. Believing that God wants to use the church to care for orphans and vulnerable children in our community, Hands of Hope provides volunteer opportunities to love and serve foster care children and support foster care parents.


Hands of Hope seeks to serve their partner children’s homes through short-term mission trips where they build relationships and go deep with the children at the homes. Although the trips do planned activities with the children, the main purpose of the trips is to love and serve the children, while also encouraging the care givers.
