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 removed from their biological homes due to abuse and/or neglect.  Children are matched with a caring foster family who has been educated about their needs and embrace them into their family through foster care, and potentially adoption. Families and Hope Cottage staff work together 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 and make your reservation to attend an upcoming Adoption Open House.   For more information and to RSVP, call Hope Cottage at (214) 526-8721 or email Christa Stewart.

Open Houses are held at:

Hope Cottage, The Rees-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.
