80% of families that experience the passing of a child experience divorce. 90% of families with a child of special needs experience divorce. This Hope Foundation is here to help those families experiencing difficulty.
This HOPE Foundation's Purpose:
We exist to partner with individuals, families, and/or likeminded organizations in bringing hope to these people in their greatest time of need. Our success is measured one person, one family, one organization, one life at a time.
"Where there is no vision, there is no hope."
"Rick, you don't have to 'Google' it, you've lived it."
"Learn from yesterday, Live for today, Hope for tomorrow..."
"Every kid needs someone to look up to, a role model, a Hero!"
To provide parents that have experienced the passing of a child a connection with other such parents/families. We provide (among other services) a weekend get away (all expense paid) with Rick and Gina to build a relationship, network with similar people, and develop coping skills so as not to become a statistic.
