We thank you for your loyalty and commitment to Hope’s children.
The Ambassadors of Hope is a select group of men and women committed to bettering the lives of children with multiple developmental disabilities. Through their financial and social involvement, Ambassadors help the children of Hope reach their potential, and live fulfilling and joyful lives. They also increase awareness of Hope’s mission by spreading the word about its work, and tap their personal and professional networks to help Hope connect with the community.
The Ambassadors of Hope accept support year round and create an action – oriented and meaningful avenue for men and women in the community to support Hope.
