About Homes of Hope:
Homes of Hope, a Christian Non-Profit Corporation, is dedicated to the equipping and support of foster families and the children in their care. We understand that not everyone can become a foster family, but we believe that everyone can help. All of us working together can make a difference in the lives of our children and in doing so change the face of tomorrow.
Vision Statement: Homes of Hope believes all children deserve a safe, nurturing, permanent and loving family.
Mission Statement: Our mission is to recruit, train, support and mentor foster, biological and adoptive parents so they may provide a safe and nurturing home to at-risk children.
Impact Area: Our outreach begins in the Lewiston – Clarkston Valley and extends to Clearwater, Idaho, Latah, Lewis and Nez Perce Counties in Idaho and to Asotin, Garfield and Whitman Counties in Washington.
