HOPE Center for the Arts needs YOUR support before  Friday, June 14th

We’re a unique program that provides artistic opportunities for intellectually disabled adults to develop, create, express and earn income based on their talents through public exhibitions and performances.

In April of last year, HOPE was informed that the owner of our facility planned to sell the building. Since then, we have searched for a new location. Organizations and individuals have stepped up to support our population, but the time has now come for us to raise $50,000 needed to move by June 30th. If these funds are not raised in time, our population - our community will face an uncertain future.

Since taking on a leadership position at HOPE in 2016 which led to a post as  Executive Director,  I’ve worked closely with our Families/Caregivers, Staff, Board, the city of Anaheim and other stakeholders to ensure HOPE is stable. I’m happy to say that during this period we’ve continued to maintain quality arts services and have increased our student’s value in the community while also reducing expenses by approximately 30%

Your partnership in HOPE’s future at any level, will provide this population a lifeline to continue to grow, prosper, and be productive members of our community.

YOU can help give HOPE today.



In appreciation,

Michele
