About us

At Greater Hopes we’re all about helping to create new families. That could mean bringing adopting families together with birth families, creating a brand new bigger family; or that could mean helping new parents gain new tools and a new outlook, creating the family they truly want.

Purposefully small so we never lose that personal contact, Greater Hopes is  a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to the welfare of children. Greater Hopes was founded in September 1997 and became a Licensed Child Placing agency on January 15, 1998.

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.
