Greater Hopes, Inc.
Greater Hopes Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded in September 1997. It became a licensed child-placing agency on January 15, 1998. Since then we have worked with over 600 families who have adopted over 700 children from all over the USA and 13 other countries. We have helped children of all ages be placed with loving adoptive families. Greater Hopes supports relative adoptions and direct consent placements where the child's parents choose the family who adopts their child.
We also started KICKS, Kids Investing in Communities through Kindness and Service. This service club for children teaches them to give and serve without expectation of reward, prizes or winning anything for themselves. We know they will be rewarded by the good feelings they develop as they help others and see what a positive difference they are making in someone else’s life. Currently our KICKS' Kids are making blankets for shelter animals and are practicing their reading skills so they can offer these animals a meaningful visit by offering them a blanket and a story.
