HOPE offers a giant thank you to Board Treasurer Robert Irlen for his generous gift of $5,000 to support our cause and join the Ambassador 5 Circle. Bob is a longtime benefactor of our mission, parent of a HOPE resident, past Board Member of Harbor Regional Center, and community leader. We could not be more proud of his belief in our work and his willingness to step up and fund our future impact in the community.

Ambassador 5 Circle members are among HOPE’s most important donors. They are bound together by a shared commitment to the mission of creating stable, affordable homes for adults with developmental disabilities. These VIP patrons create the financial security for HOPE to move quickly when extraordinary opportunities arise.

“I am passionate about HOPE because of their core value of empowering residents to live independently…to make everyday choices that they may not otherwise have had the opportunity to make,” Bob says. “These are everyday things you and I may sometimes take for granted—what to eat, what to wear, what to do for leisure. And it is housing—housing which for out tenants wouldn’t be available without HOPE—which helps to plays a major role in this.”

Join Bob in becoming an Ambassador 5 Circle member by committing to a $5,000 or more annual gift and receive the following recognition and benefits:

  • Invitation to annual Ambassador 5 Circle recognition event

  • Appropriate recognition throughout the year in HOPE’s publications, website, and social media

  • Donor highlight at future open-house event

  • Insider briefings on HOPE breaking news and activities

  • An Ambassador 5 Circle lapel pin
