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.
Roughly 600,000 American children spend time in the foster care system each year. Of those available for adoption, which is consistently more than 100,000 children, half are thought of as “unadoptable” because they are too old, are in sibling groups or have medical/emotional needs. If a child turns 18 and ages out of the system, 25 percent end up homeless. We can’t deal with that. All these children need is someone to commit to loving and taking care of them.
Grant Me Hope has three goals:
1.) To educate the public about the needs and plight of foster children
2.) Recruit more foster families to decrease the number of children living in institutions
3.) Get as many children adopted as possible
Our focus with Grant Me Hope is to market the older foster children before they term out of the system.
You can help us to find these children a forever home!
