HOPE is thrilled to announce that we will be embarking on a 5 year Capital Campaign starting in 2014 to raise over 2.6 million dollars to purchase more properties for our Affordable Rental Housing Program. HOPE will be seeking out funds from cities, foundations and donors to purchase three properties. These purchases will result in allowing 15 people with developmental disabilities to move into an affordable property and pay no more than 30% of their income for rent.

The purchase and renovation will take place in three phases over the duration of the 5 years, as funds are raised. For every two dollars raised HOPE will add on dollar from its existing reserves. If you are interested in supporting this very important effort please contact a member of the HOPE staff or Board to find out how you can help make the dream of independent living a reality for more people with developmental disabilities.
