Dave and Tami Kromer - Founders and Directors
We are Dave & Tami Kromer, married for almost 22 years & parents of 6 amazing kids: 3 biological and 3 adopted. Our passion for adoption was birthed well before we even had children, but set on fire with our youngest daughter Clara. Clara was born without a brain and we adopted her knowing her time here on earth was short. After 8 months and 8 days of beautiful life, she went to be with Jesus. She taught us that every person deserves a family, no matter how long they will be here-no matter their physical limitations-no matter what. We are here to share the passion and educate others regarding the very real orphan crisis occurring right now in the world. We want to empower you to realize YOU can help care for the orphan too. We hope to show you how.
Erin Deale - Lead Program Coordinator/Social Worker
With more than 16 years experience as a social worker, I have worked alongside children, teens, and parents in family preservation, licensing, foster care, adoption and adolescent residential treatment. Over and over again I've seen the importance of support and community in the ongoing success of a family. I'm honored to be part of Clara's Hope and walk with many families and individuals as they discover their part in caring for today's orphan.
