We want to help you parent from a place of hope and rest. And we know that traditional parenting strategies may do more harm than good for kids who have experienced foster care or adoption. Learn practical strategies that you can implement in your home from trainers who "get it". You'll leave with the knowledge and encouragement to parent in a connected way.
If you are a teacher, social worker, camp counselor, or work in an organization that serves children and families and want to bring trauma-informed care to your team, you can request a training to fit your organization's needs. Gain knowledge about how trauma impacts the body, brain, and behavior and learn strategies that can be implemented in your program right away!
The foster and adoptive community desperately needs the church community. And they need the church to understand children from hard places and the unique joys and challenges when parenting them. Learn how to create safe spaces for all children and families in your ministry.

Ben and Emily Coussen, Foster to Adopt Family
Support has been what has kept us able to get up in the morning. Our close circle of friends, family, and church family that compile our support system, helped with Dr. appointments, childcare during court dates, meals when the kids were sick or when we were just placed with them. Our support system also prayed for us constantly. There is no way we would have been able to progress from first time foster parents straight through unrelated adoption without our support.
Brett Millican, Adoptive Dad
Fostering Hope has given me the confidence and tools to be confident on how I can lead [my child] through her moments in a way that connects, instead of getting frustrated.
Beverly Morris, Kinship Guardian
Once I started taking classes with Fostering Hope and I learned to deal with their behavioral issues, that's when everything changed.
