Supply much needed items to families working within the Foster care system
Children are often placed in care with little personal items and many times with just the clothes on their back. This is where we step in.
Operation Foster hope helps to reduce the financial strain by supplying much needed items to children entering the Foster care system. We supply items such as clothes, shoes, diapers, wipes, cribs, mattresses, bed’s, car seats, highchairs and many other needed items.

Get to know Esther Dennis
I was born and raised in Colorado. But my love of travel took me to New York, then California for a few years. After finding my husband in California, we decided to make Colorado our permanent home. About a year into returning, we decided it was time to build a family of our own, so we looked into foster care. We have been fostering now for many years and have been blessed with two adopted children. As someone with a lifelong passion for caring and supporting people, I have always thrived in a social services setting. I thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge and learned experiences with others. This passion to serve others motivated me to Co-found Operation Foster Hope. As a Foster parent myself I understand the struggle of providing every essential item to our kids entering our home. Our focus should be to the children themselves, helping them heal and finding their way. If we can take just a little of the outside stress away, that would allow families to focus on the children in their care.

I grew up in Northern California where I met my husband through an EMT program. We married in 2005 and had two healthy boys. In 2016, our friends had been wanting to go to a foster care orientation and asked us to go. We were immediately all in and this is where we thought our foster care journey would begin. Unfortunately, eight months went by with no communication and no placements, so we decided to close our home and venture to Colorado. Within a week of being here, we attended an orientation and started the long process all over again, this time hoping for better results. Within weeks of getting licensed, the calls were already coming in. We were needed! It was such an amazing feeling to be able to say yes and wrap around these kiddos during their most vulnerable times. As the calls started to roll in, I quickly saw the need for resources, friends, meals, and to be seen by my community. This is what drove my passion to Co-Found Operation Foster Hope, to offer these families what they need to get through another day.
