Delilah - Founder
"I founded point hope so that....
...I could accomplish some things I wanted to do for children who had no one to advocate for them, children who had no voice. Since I have been blessed with a voice on the radio each night, I thought I would use my celebrity position and my financial resources to help these kids.”
Delilah, the most-listened-to-woman on radio in North America, fell in love with radio as a fifth-grader in her hometown of Reedsport, Oregon. Today, her soothing voice, open heart and love of music has expanded her audience from the folks in Reedsport to more than eight million people on over 200 radio stations in the U.S. and Canada.
Delilah is the mother of 13 children, two of whom now reside in Heaven. Also the step-mother to five wonderful young adults and married to Paul, her life is full beyond measure. Ten of her children are adopted; four of them were from the foster care system in Washington State, two of them were orphans from Ghana, West Africa (Sammy, her son who passed away from Sickle Cell Anemia complications was one of these children) and three of them were Liberian refugees also living in Ghana. She advocates for reform in the foster care system and lives the belief of finding Forever Families for as many children as there are available to adopt.
