Consider becoming a "Friend of Hope"!

The Friend of Hope program allows you to partner with us in the ongoing care of the more than 130 girls by giving monthly support. Light of Hope meets the physical, emotional and spiritual needs for these vulnerable girls in a 24x7 safe environment.

Becoming a Friend of Hope creates an opportunity to develop a friendship with a specific girl. It's a monthly commitment to cover all or a portion of a girl's expenses. You'll have the chance twice a year to exchange letters and pictures to provide encouragement as she grows.

The total cost to cover food, education and medical care is $2,500 a year.

  • A monthly gift of $210 will cover all costs for one girl.

  • You may consider asking family or friends to join you in fully supporting a girl.

  • Or you may chose to share in the support for a girl by giving any amount.
