Portraits of Hope 2019

Stop by our office to learn more about the children available for adoption in Cherokee County and read their bios on our “Meet the Kids” page!
November 9th is #WorldAdoptionDay! To celebrate, Reformation Brewery brewed a Hazy Pale Ale with Galaxy hops, a collaboration between Reformation Brewery (Woodstock, GA), Boomtown Brewery (Los Angeles, CA), & Platypus Brewing (Houston, TX).
A joint release this November, this beer raises funds & awareness in support of children seeking forever homes in our communities, and celebrates our personal adoption stories.
While supplies last, Reformation Brewery will donate $1 per pint/pack of this beer to The Children’s Haven in support of our Portraits of Hope program, which identifies and matches waiting children in Cherokee County with adoptive families.
We’re so excited about the potential impact of this partnership as we work to find permanent homes for Cherokee County’s children in foster care. #PortraitsOfHope #BuildingHappyHealthyChildren Reformation Brewery Reformation Brewery
