Who is Show Hope?

Show Hope is a movement to care for orphans. We work to restore hope by breaking down the barriers that exist between waiting children and loving families.

This movement began in 2003, when Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman founded Show Hope after having their own eyes and hearts opened to the global orphan crisis. Since then, Show Hope has worked to holistically approach orphan care, helping children in four key areas:

Through Adoption Aid grants, Show Hope has helped more than 5,500 children from more than 50 countries, including the U.S. More than 2,300 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.
