About A Greater Hope
A Greater Hope believes that hope transforms, love restores and healing is possible for every person.
A Greater Hope is a nationally accredited, community-based organization serving hundreds of at-risk adults, vulnerable children and heroic resource (foster) families each year. Greater Hope provides a continuum of care that includes Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment, Foster Care, Supervised Visitation, Adoption Services, and a full scope of Counseling and Behavioral Health Services. Our goal is that every client, from a 38 year old single man to 3 day old twin baby girls, finds A Greater Hope.
Since its inception in 2002, A Greater Hope has found safe and loving homes for more than 6,000 abused children. Every year, hundreds of adults, all ages, backgrounds and marital status join Greater Hope's robust Behavioral Health Services that enable them to transform their lives with therapeutic interventions and education on anger management, trauma, life skills and more.
Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those in need through culturally responsive integrated services.
Foster care is when a child is placed in a temporary, safe home in a time of crisis. Adult caregivers, commonly known as Foster Parents or Resource Parents, then become part of the child’s support system, providing them with the necessities of life and healing programs designed to help them process the trauma they have endured. Resource Parents work with the child’s social workers, teachers, and doctors, to proactively nurture, love, and advocate for their needs until they are reunified with their birth family or are adopted.
A Greater Hope actively searches for and approves families that are committed to helping children and can care for and nurture them without hesitation. Families in these positions must be ready to work towards the greater good of the children placed in their care.
