Mission statement: Grant Me Hope’s purpose is to find loving, adoptive homes for foster children before they age out of the foster care system alone facing homelessness.
Nearly 600,000 American children spent time in the foster care system annually. Of those available for adoption, which is consistently more than 100,000 children, roughly half are considered “unadoptable” because they are too old, are in sibling groups or have specific medical/emotional needs. If a child turns 18 and ages out of the system, 25 percent end up homeless. All these children need is someone to commit to loving and taking care of them.
Grant Me Hope has three goals:
1.) Educate the public about the plight of aged out foster children;
2.) Recruit more foster families to ensure foster children have a home to go to
and not an institution during their time in foster care.
3.) Get as many children adopted as possible
Grant Me Hope’s primary way of doing this is to produce one- and two-minute, high-quality videos of foster children who are available for adoption and opt to participate in our program. These videos are used during the newscasts of our partnering television stations and on social media to allow the children to introduce themselves to thousands of potential families.
