COMING SOON… Greater Hopes believes in families. We have the help and support so you can have the family you want.

Greater Hopes operates a Full Service Child Placing Agency with the answers to your adoption questions.

About us

At Greater Hopes we’re all about helping to strengthen families. That could mean bringing adopting families together with birth families, creating a brand new bigger family. Or that could mean helping parents raise their children while gaining great new tools and a new brighter outlook.

Greater Hopes has completely changed our family forever. We have loved every minute of working with them since they make you feel so welcome and part of their family.

I contacted Cathy with some questions about foster care/adoption. I expected to make an appointment, but Cathy answered all my questions over the phone, all for free.

Greater Hopes helped me in ways that I didn’t think an adoption agency could. I felt supported and loved, and they were always there when I needed them. They have a real love for how birth families can heal!
