We couldn’t do it without you

Your generosity will benefit the continued support of those people served by New Hope Community and support of New Hope’s mission of enhancing the lives of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Your donation makes it possible for people we support to develop independence and confidence, to lead a person-centered life and to become contributing members of our community.

There are so many ways to help here at New Hope Community. Multiple paths exist in making a tax-deductible donation. We hold charitable events throughout the year. A person might apply to volunteer his or her time. Or we even offer career possibilities. However help is given, we thank you for making New Hope Community and the people we serve a part of your life. Our 40 years of driving a culture of independence, inclusion and innovation for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities would not be possible without your help.
