A Season of Giving at The Hope Institute for Children and Families

Dear Friends of The Hope Institute,

This is the season for giving, and the children of The Hope Institute for Children and Families are no exception!

Our children – all of whom have multiple physical and developmental disabilities – have learned the importance of giving back to the community in gratitude for all they have received. It is just one of the many ways in which The Hope Institute prepares youth to achieve their full potential despite the challenges they face.

This year, our senior classes will be serving meals and clearing tables at an agency that helps the homeless. Will, Jamie and Ashley will share Holiday treats and play bingo with residents at a local nursing home, and Drew and Taylor will deliver small gifts to those staying at the local Ronald McDonald House. Jamie, Will, Ashley, Taylor and Drew are not only learning about giving, they are inspiring us all by the ways they are putting those lessons into action!

You are in inspiration to many. Will you continue the legacy of giving by supporting the Children of Hope? Your donation today – using the handy link on our Facebook fan page or our website – will help us continue to teach important lessons of daily life for some of our society’s most vulnerable youth.

More significantly, you will be helping to create a future of Hope for children, families and communities across Illinois. Thank you in advance for opening your heart to our children in this season of giving.

Please share this story with your friends and family
