Gift of Hope

The holidays are a special time of celebration. Gift of Hope is an opportunity to join the celebration and make the holiday season bright for each resident of Hope Network’s group homes.

Hope Network’s residential programs provide individualized services to people with developmental disabilities, mental illness, or traumatic brain injuries. Due to the nature of their disabilities, many of the residents have lost touch with their families. For some, the Hope Network family is all they have. This gap is magnified during the holidays, when families are celebrated.

Gift of Hope is a Hope Network sponsorship program for people in the community to sponsor residents living in a group home at Christmas.

We have more than 100 homes in the network, most with about six people per home. Through Gift of Hope, our community comes together to make sure each one of those residents has a present under the tree Christmas morning. A $20 gift or gift card will go a long way to bring Christmas to life for one of the residents. You are invited to sponsor as many as you are able.
