The First Step

Foster Adoption, The First Step: The Hope Cottage Foster to Adopt Program serves individual children and sibling sets from 0-17 years of age who have been identified by CPS as likely candidates for adoption. Children are matched with a caring family who has been educated about their needs and embrace them into their family through adoption, not temporary care. Families and Hope Cottage staff work together for several months following placement to ensure a smooth transition and that the children receive all necessary services. To learn more about the specifics of the Foster to Adopt Program, call Hope Cottage make your reservation to attend an upcoming Adoption Open House.   For more information and to RSVP, contact Molly by email or by calling (214) 526-8721, ext. 218.

Unless otherwise indicated, all Open Houses are held the second Monday of each month at:

Hope Cottage, The Reese-Jones Event & Conference Center,
609 Texas Street
Dallas, TX  75204

Though a child may come into your home initially as a foster child, the goal is always adoption.

Even though there is no placement fee for the family in Foster to Adopt, families must be financially stable before becoming licensed to care for a child.
