Fostering Hope was established in 2006 after four years of research into the foster care system. Our goal was to better understand the plight of children in foster care and the challenges of foster parents who step up to provide them with a home. What began as a little more than a hunch and a heart for helping these families is today an organization impacting hundreds of lives.
In partnership with faith communities, businesses and other nonprofits, we support some 40 foster families in the Pikes Peak region, as well as dozens of teens and young adults who are emancipating, or aging out, of the child welfare system. Our network of volunteers act as the extended family these kids missed out on, and that the foster parents need to keep going.
