WHO WE ARE
Uniting Hope 4 Children is a faith based non-profit, 501(c)3 that recruits, trains and encourages foster families. Our desire is to place abused and neglected children in safe, loving homes. We believe this is best accomplished through partnering with local churches and recruiting Care Teams. Uniting Hope 4 Children requires a Pastoral Reference to be completed during the Home Study Process. UH4C also believes in a traditional view of marriage and makes all decisions based on the best interest of the children. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only hope.
At Uniting Hope 4 Children, we do not believe it is best practice for one family to foster a child without community support. Therefore, our philosophy is simple – to recruit “Family Units” who are connected to a local church. As an agency, we will then provide ongoing support, encouragement and communication within these family units as they develop a stable environment for the care of foster children. We believe this partnership will produce long term foster families to partner with the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS).
Our mission is to recruit, train, encourage, and support foster families by guiding them through the fostering journey.
Our vision is to see Christians and churches provide foster care for children in need by partnering together to establish, encourage, enable and support foster families.
Uniting Hope 4 Children recruits local churches to help us build our Care Teams. We have found that while recruiting fostering families is beneficial, it’s only a short term solution to a long term problem. Our model helps us recruit both foster families and support, which helps families stay in foster care for years to come. Our desire in recruiting churches and Care Teams is that we focus as much on support of a foster family as the family itself.
