ABOUT

Love Fosters Hope is a Texas-based non-profit organization with many facets, but one purpose: to impact the lives of children and teens in foster care who have been abused, neglected or abandoned.  These kids long to experience the acceptance and provisions others often take for granted, and instead face a future of uncertainty where so many odds are stacked against them. Love Fosters Hope’s mission is to model the character of Jesus for them, show them their value as individuals, and equip them with the tools they need to live independently and to the fullness of their God-given potential. The centerpiece of this ministry is summer camps, where youth with foster care backgrounds can trade feelings of hurt and rejection for self-esteem and respect.

Mentoring

Mentoring is available for youth in foster care, ages 12-19. Love Fosters Hope’s mentoring program is year round and has a proven method for helping young people of all backgrounds and circumstances achieve their potential. Mentors offer support, counsel, and friendship, while setting a positive example.  For more information, go to http://lovefostershope.org/get-involved/mentoring/.

The Net

Just because a young person ages out of foster care doesn’t mean they’re completely on their own. The Net provides continuing support and guidance through life events such as helping obtain driver’s licenses, college applications, jobs and housing.  For information how you might get involved, go to http://lovefostershope.org/get-involved/net/.

Reach

Love Fosters Hope is taking its message directly to some of the teens who need it most by visiting Residential Treatment Centers (RTCs). We encourage them, let them know they are valued, and invite them to participate in fun activities and learn skills needed for adulthood.  To learn more, go to http://lovefostershope.org/residential-treatment-center-outreach
