"What is sown in the season of cold and darkness will be a rich harvest in the season of warmth and brightness." 
- Tim Challies
Mom and daughter on roller skates


Seth and Kristen Kolb walked the foster care journey for four and a half years as they cared for six children in Collin, Dallas and Denton Counties. Each child and family had a unique story. They watched as parents struggled to give themselves their best chance at reunification -- visits were challenging, parents struggled with mental health and addiction, and they continued some of their unhealthy patterns. The hurdles of transportation, employment, medical care and getting back on their feet were often crippling along the way. While many of the parents completed the necessary steps to get their child back, they often reunified ill-equipped to be the parents their children needed.






Hope Spring Community is rooted in the belief that every single parent and child has inherent worth and dignity. As long as the courts have not terminated the parents' rights, they should be given the opportunity to pursue reunification. Some will not want the opportunity, but for those who do, Hope Spring Community exists to provide parents the hope and resources to restoration. 

We understand that reunification is not always best or safe for a child.  Hope Spring Community hopes to serve parents who are safe and appropriate candidates for Reunification. Parents go through an application process and enter with at least two recommendations from CASA, CPS and/or Attorney. Parents who participate abide by a strict standard of participation in order to protect limited space for those striving and doing their very best.

People coming together for a common missions


It is our mission to provide a safe place for parents to learn and grow as they prepare for reunification with their child. Our hope is that they would find community and support that lasts well beyond this challenging season. 


We feel that when parents are equipped with education, mental health support, and a loving community to surround them, they have a better chance of reunification. And more significant than reunification, they have the ability to break generational cycles of addiction, abuse and neglect. Our hope is not only for restoration of families, but for families to have a lasting legacy. 

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
