Restore dignity, turn Karin's tragedy into triumph

View the video at the bottom of this page to hear Karin share the emotional story that inspired her vision for Hope & A Future.

Will you join me in making a difference, helping turn Karin's tragedy into triumph, and pioneering a new model of care and community?  

We would like to raise money to benefit Hope & A Future, a local non-profit agency with passion and an incredible vision.
The organization's goal is to foster relationships, community, purpose, and generativity through intergenerational housing communities, where seniors and young families with low socioeconomic status can utilize their strengths to serve one another.

 The organization has already impacted many lives and would like to expand to offer more families and seniors the opportunity to flourish in the Therapeutic, Interactive, Intergenerational Neighborhood (TIIN). Their next phase includes additional housing units, a day care, and a multipurpose room that they intend to use for fun events to build connections among the TIIN community.

About Hope & A Future: 

“At Hope & A Future, we believe that people need to help as much as they need to be helped.”

Mission: To promote meaningful relationships between young and old, empowering individuals to serve and strengthen one another in a diverse, faith-based, green community.

Vision: To develop a Therapeutic Interactive Intergenerational Neighborhood (TIIN) that is sustainable and replicable.
