Over 5000 NZ children are in foster care due to serious neglect or abuse and, despite best intentions, they are often separated from their brothers and sisters and can change families up to 3 times per year.
We are passionate about delivering the very best foster care services for children from hard places and have suffered abuse and/or neglect. We prevent brothers and sisters from being separated and ensure stability of their care for as long as it is needed.
Our overall goal is to restore health and wholeness to each child so that they are able to take their place in society – confident, competent and fulfilled.
We keep sibling groups together when they come in to care within a community setting of homes. We provide wrap-around therapeutic support to each child.We provide specialised training and support to all our foster carers and team.
We have already cared for over 250 children. Some are now young adults.
Here are some of the things they have said:
“I was in 52 different homes during my time in care, including four years at Homes of Hope. When I was at Homes of Hope it was the only time I felt like I was home and my siblings and I could all stay together as a family”
“The best thing about Homes of Hope was all the love and support everyone had for us kids.”
“I’m thankful for what Homes of Hope did to my life. Homes of Hope taught me to go down the right path and I have.”
“Homes of Hope taught me how to love and respect one another and how to ride a bike.”
Every child should have a smile on their face. Help us to help them! Please make a donation today. No matter how big or small, every little bit helps.
