Shepherd Care features a unique Summer Hosting Program with the vision to see more kids find the forever families they have been waiting for.
Every summer Shepherd Care brings a group of children from Columbia to the U.S. From there, each child is matched with a family who they stay with for the 2 week program. Each of these children needs a forever family, which is why the Summer Hosting Program is so important. These 2 weeks can give a child the chance to meet a family, connect, and form a bond that grows into adoption.
For children coming from Columbia, this 2 week visit also gives them the opportunity to meet these families, get comfortable, and acquainted with our community. And during those 2 weeks parents can also gain a hands-on experience of what adoption is really like—good and bad. In the end we have seen dozens of families see the beauty of adoption during the Summer Hosting Program and the impact of that is priceless.
