Who is Show Hope?

Show Hope cares for orphans by engaging the Church and reducing barriers to adoption.

Founded in 2003, by Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman, Show Hope’s work has impacted the lives of thousands of children and families around the world. This work has taken place in four primary ways:

Through Adoption Aid grants, Show Hope has helped more than 5,800 children from more than 60 countries, including the U.S., come into loving families. More than 2,500 waiting children with acute medical and special needs have received loving care through Show Hope’s Care Centers in China. Show Hope’s partnership with the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development and Empowered To Connect has helped bring hope and healing to children around the world with encouraging, research-based teaching in Pre+Post Adoption Support. And Show Hope prepares for the future with our Student Initiatives by educating and empowering the next generation of leaders to effectively care and make a difference in the lives of children who are orphaned.

All of this work is only possible because of the generous and passionate involvement of people like you. Not everyone is called to adopt, but everyone is called to do something. Some people donate, some people sponsor, some people commit to prayer, and some people fundraise.
