New Hope Foundation assists willing families who suffer setbacks despite their hard work and personal efforts to achieve success.
Currently, our annual Elves In Disguise program comprises New Hope Foundation’s primary family focus program.
Each holiday season, volunteers at New Hope Foundation join together to bring joy and hope to one or more families with our special Elves in Disguise “home makeover.” Elves in Disguise provides basic items many people may take for granted, such as a clean mattress with sheets and a bed frame or a dining room table or desk where the kids can do homework. Relieved of the burden of providing the basics, families are able to focus on achieving important milestones that can help them break the constraints of poverty.

In addition to our specific Family Focus Programs, New Hope Foundation and our amazing community partners spend time throughout the year in mentoring activities with families in the community as part of our ongoing focus on families.
