Thank you to the Shrum Family
Thank you to the Shrum Family for your donation!
Since the start of their foster care and adoption journey, Gilbert and Nichole Shrum have donated to Onward Hope. The couple adopted their two kinship placements last year on April 22nd after over a year of fostering the twin boys. This month the Shrum's celebrated the transition of their twins into "big boy beds" and donated their cribs to our Teen Parent program. Thank you to the Shrum family for your continued support in the work that Onward Hope does and the youth and families we support!

A Message from our CEO
Hey everyone,

I wanted to bring you all some exciting news on behalf of Onward Hope; we are moving! Yes, you heard that right. Our new office will be located on 14th Avenue and Camelback rd.

We have been waiting to let you know, but the time is finally here. Our new office is only a mile away from the new houses for the Transitional Youth Program. This year has been so unpredictable, but that hasn’t stopped us.

We wish you all well. Stay safe!

Now Hiring!

We are hiring multiple Parent Aides! The Parent Aide intends to expand its care-giving capacity, in order to provide parental guidance to all parents whose children have been removed by DCS.
