About Show Hope

Show Hope exists to care for orphans by engaging the Church and reducing barriers to adoption.

After having their own eyes and hearts opened to the needs of orphans around the world, Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman founded Show Hope in 2003. Since then, Show Hope has worked to holistically approach adoption advocacy and orphan care by addressing three key barriers to adoption: the financial barrier, the medical barrier, and the knowledge barrier.

About Show Hope’s Partners

The Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development (KPICD) is a program of the Department of Psychology at the TCU College of Science & Engineering in Fort Worth, Texas. Its mission is research, education, training, and outreach to improve the lives of children who have experienced abuse, neglect, and/or trauma. The KPICD’s research and interventions are empowering parents, professionals, and students with trauma-informed strategies that improve outcomes for children and youth.

The KPICD was created as an outgrowth of the Hope Connection®, a research and intervention project developed in 1999 by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross. The Hope Connection began as a summer camp for children who experienced early orphanage care. The results proved so remarkable they sparked a compelling scientific and personal journey for Drs. Purvis and Cross. By the end of the first week and into the second week of camp, they saw dramatic changes in attachment, social competency with peers, and language. These outcomes formed the empirical foundations for Trust-based Relational Intervention (TBRI), a model for children impacted by trauma.

Empowered to Connect is a dynamic network of programs aimed at increasing access to holistic care for individuals, families, and communities. ETC has developed attachment-rich, trauma-informed, and healing-centered resources that inform better care practices, prioritizing root causes and community support. 

At every level, ETC journeys alongside families and communities toward greater healing and hope. ETC’s programs include a mixture of training, advocacy, consulting, and therapeutic services.
