Ignite Hope exists to rescue at-risk children from the nightmare of life without a family.
We offer strategic prayer, resourcing and encouragement for families and organizations who are in the world of foster care or adoption. Ignite Hope seeks to advocate, resource and encourage families in need.
of Foster Kids Are Imprisoned or Trafficked
Before foster kids have a chance to establish themselves in our society, they fall helplessly into our penal system, or worse, they are imprisoned to a life of human trafficking.
In 2020 after just 4 ½ years with our nonprofit status, Ignite Hope has impacted over 87,000 individuals in 26 countries with our devotionals, prayer guides, and training.
Ignite Hope’s key distinctive has always been strategic prayer. This year we established several new partnerships, including facilitating strategic prayer training for Georgia’s largest Christian foster agency, Faith Bridge, and a 6-month article segment with Focus on the Family.

Ignite Hope representatives have worked hard to be able to influence legislation on a state and national level.
Our current initiatives are:
National- Through an advisory role we were able to help lawmakers expand new legislation from "this will help a few hundred children" to "this will help thousands of children".
State- Ignite Hope partnered with multiple individuals and organizations to form a Foster child bill of rights which was submitted this summer for consideration. Pray!
Within our community there is a huge need for encouragement and support for foster and adoptive families. Most people aren't are of this need, even if they are, they aren't sure how to help.
1- Every quarter we host a "Date Night" where we organize childcare and provide a date night experience for families who foster or adopt. (we have shifted this model due to covid-19)
2- We joined with DFACS to plan a graduation party for the 17 foster kids in Cobb county that graduated from high school in 2020! Great job guys!
3- Once a year we participate in the Princess for a Day event to pray over girls in foster care.
4- Once a year we participate in the Boys to Men event where we are "Superheroes" for boys in Foster care. Its a good time!
