Families for HoPE was formed in 2006 as an all-volunteer organization to serve the needs of children with HPE and their families. Twelve years ago, we had 2-3 new HPE families contacting us each month on average. Today, we can average 2-3 new families per day. The popularity of social media has had a huge impact on the number of requests for our services, and as a result, we have recently undertaken a strategic look at where we are today and where we want to be in the future.
In 2017, we engaged a consultant who has provided recommendations and guidance to increase our organizational effectiveness. Over the coming weeks and months, we will be implementing changes that will enable our organization to grow and flourish. This will allow us to invite more of our HPE families to become volunteers and reach more families needing our services.
This week, we have shared our new corporate logo, and you will soon see updates and new information on our website, fun opportunities for raising awareness and funds, opportunities to volunteer, and more!
We are very excited to begin this work, and we seek your patience as we work through these positive growing pains.
