In 2003, Show Hope was founded by Steven Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman as a movement to care for orphans. Since it’s inception, Show Hope has sought to restore the hope of a family to orphans in distress around the world by enabling more children to enter families through Adoption Aid grants, through providing acute medical care for orphans with special needs in multiple Care Centers in China, and by helping to train families and professionals to better meet the needs of children through pre- and post-adoption resources like the Empowered to Connect conference.
