The New Hope Foundation Story

We educate, we empower, we help people find jobs…. we help people believe that there’s hope. The whole idea is that we provide NEW HOPE to people in the community who otherwise may not have it.

Our volunteers are individuals, families, friends, teams, schools, businesses and organizations. We represent all ages and all walks of life, but we share a common goal: Self Empowerment.  Join the hundreds of volunteers and donors who believe in a better future.

Donate your time or your services; collaborate with us by adopting a project or an entire Elves In Disguise family. Think of us when your company, organization or family makes their yearly gifts and help us spread the word. At New Hope Foundation, we are breaking the cycle of generational poverty and rewriting better, brighter futures. Contact Us for more information.
