Did you know?

  • In America, between 400,000 and 600,000 children spend time in the foster care system each year?
  • Of those available for adoption — roughly 125,000 — one-half tend to be thought of as “unadoptable” because they are too old, want to be adopted with their siblings, or have specific medical/emotional needs?


They need the right family. Is It yours?

Some just need a mom, or a dad. Is that you?

If a child turns 18 and ages out of the foster care system, 25 percent become homeless. Grant Me Hope is working hard to end that.

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.

Grant Me Hope has three goals:

1.) Educate the public about the plight of aged out foster children;

2.) Recruit more foster families to limit the number of foster children in institutions;

3.) Get as many children adopted as possible

Grant Me Hope produces excellent, professionally done one- and two-minute, high-quality,  broadcast-worthy videos of foster children who are available for adoption. These videos are aired during the newscasts of our partnering television stations, as public service announcements on TCT TV, and on social media to allow the children to introduce themselves to thousands of potential families.
