What People Are Saying About Us


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!
