FUTURE HOPE - Is all about recruiting new "resource/foster parents" and coming alongside those who choose to walk this journey.
Family is a key component of our society and everyone has a deep longing in their heart to experience life in a loving, caring family. In the United States alone, there are 125,000 children infants to age 17 who are waiting to be adopted into a forever family. The number of children entering the resource/foster care system is just as staggering. For many, the hope of a family is quickly fading away. FUTURE HOPE is about promoting the needs of resource/foster/adoptive parents and providing resources to help make the process of providing a safe loving home, as smooth and uncomplicated as possible.
Nearly HALF of all Napa County foster kids are placed out of county because there are not enough homes in Napa. LET’S BRING OUR KIDS BACK HOME!
Expressions of Hope works closely with Napa County Child Welfare Dept to assist in the recruitment and retention efforts of Resource parents. (foster parents).
We are holding quarterly “town hall meetings,” to build awareness in the community and recruit new resource parents. We are actively getting into Faith Based Communities to seek people that may be interested in being a resource/foster parent, but also to find people who are willing to help in other ways.
There are MANY ways to help and become involved!
* Do you cut hair?
* Would you be able to tutor?
* Are you able to babysit?
* Do you have a business or service you could offer to a foster/resource family?
* Can you host a “drive” for Bags of Hope?
* Can you donate food or refreshments for a support group meeting?
* Can you donate financially?
Will you be our FUTURE HOPE to allow us to continue to care for and support the foster kids we serve?
Please contact Peggy, at Expressions of Hope if you are able to help in any way!
