Fostering Hope

Support Groups

Fostering Hope hosts monthly support group meetings where foster and adoptive families come to find community, support, connection, and encouragement. There are two separate groups, one dedicated to foster families and the other to adoptive families. On occasion, we have a guest speaker or provide a specialized training session during our meeting time. 

The meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month from 6:30 – 8:30 pm in the ROC Building. The foster group meets in Room 304, and the adoptive group meets in 302. Childcare is available, and a reservation is required. To learn more about how to get involved, email fosteringhope@fruitcove.com. 

Whether you are fostering or have adopted, come join us as we help each other on the journey. You will be amazed at how God will use your story to bless others and how their stories will bless you!

On May 2-4, 2024, Fostering Hope will partner with The Cove to present the Replanted Conference. This is the first and only conference of this kind in this part of the country. Our hybrid model will offer recorded keynote speakers with live breakout sessions facilitated by local professionals in areas of trauma, parenting, transracial families, both local and international adoption, fostering teens, marriage, grief, and more. One in two families will typically quit fostering after the first year if they are not adequately supported. Our goal is to educate, encourage, and affirm the work that local families are doing for vulnerable children. By using primarily local breakout speakers this will offer a point of contact for additional support or resources if needed for attendees.

We are so excited to gather as a community committed to caring for children through adoption and foster care. We know there can be many highs and lows in the journey. This is a safe space for you to come as you are. Our hope is that you find new and old friends here, that you leave feeling refreshed and encouraged in your journey, and that you ultimately feel lifted up by a community that is eager to love and support you.

We are FOR you!
