Our mission at Fostering Hope Florida is to provide healthy nurturing, community-supported foster homes, complete with client-specific services for children who are unable to reside with their own families.
Fostering Hope Florida has created a network of “full-service” foster homes, Hope House, each licensed to serve five or more children and designed to simulate a traditional family setting, while providing population specific services. Fostering Hope has a commitment to provide this service at no cost to all children who may benefit from it. The goal is to preserve the dignity of the individual child while assisting each child to reach his or her natural potential. Whenever possible, our staff will work with a child's family by providing services and assistance when it is in the best interest of the child.
DID YOU KNOW
There are more than 35,000 children in foster care in Florida today.
Sixty-six percent are under the age of 10, spending their critical early development years in an institutionalized setting.
Many children remain in foster care for three years or more.
Due to foster home shortages, children can be placed in up to 20 foster homes, until a permanent place for them is found. Many go to a different home each night, carrying their belongings in a grocery bag.
Siblings are often separated from one another indefinitely. The foster home shortage plays a large role in this unfortunate fact.
