New GreatNonprofits.org Award is Based on Positive Online Reviews
High Point, North Carolina December 4, 2012 – Hopscotch Adoptions, Inc. announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2012 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.
“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2012 Nonprofit,” says Robin Sizemore, Executive Director of Hopscotch Adoptions, Inc. We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including assisting more children with non-correctable special needs into permanent families.
The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Hopscotch Adoptions received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote, “I adopted two beautiful children internationally, both through Hopscotch Adoptions, and we are a grateful Hopscotch Family! Their teams, both here in the US and in-country, are wonderful to work with and, both times, really made the process very special.”
Being on the Top-Rated List comes at an important time of the year, as donors look for causes to support during the holiday season.
"We are gratified by Hopscotch Adoptions, Inc for its work,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, "They deserve to be discovered by more donors and volunteers who are looking for a great nonprofit to support."
Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a credible organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is a form of recognition by the community.
About Hopscotch Adoptions, Inc
Hopscotch Adoptions, Inc. (“Hopscotch”) is a not for profit, international adoption agency authorized in New York and licensed in North Carolina as a child-placement agency. Hopscotch is dedicated to helping children in need of families, through both humanitarian efforts and through adoption into permanent, loving homes. Hopscotch was accredited by the Council on Accreditation as a Hague Accredited agency in February 2008, and thus follows both U.S. and Hague Convention policies and regulations regarding international adoption.
The fundamental belief of Hopscotch is that each child has the right to a lifelong, loving family. We recognize and support efforts that can allow children to safely remain in their original families and, where this is not possible, to be adopted in their countries of birth. When these options are not available, however, we believe that children should be placed internationally with adoptive parents who can provide a nurturing and stable permanent family. Sometimes, sadly, children do not meet the legal standards for international adoption and are subject to institutional life. In these cases, Hopscotch supports their needs through directed humanitarian assistance that improves their quality of life. It is these children and these adoptive parents that Hopscotch serves.
