HopeFull Connections, a ministry of The Sacred Portion Children's Outreach, became Hague Accredited in January of 2012. This accreditation came as the result of a nine month self-study process and site review by the Council on Accreditation. We had to demonstrate that, as an agency, we meet standards of ethical practice for the protection of children and families. This process is repeated every four years for re-accreditation and HopeFull Connections successfully completed its Hague reaccreditation through the Council on Accreditation in September 2015. Its Hague accrediation is now vaild until January 2020.HopeFull Connections is one of only two adoption agencies in the state of Montana that are Hague accredited. Some foreign countries, such as China, are now requiring that the home study agency be Hague accredited.
