Hope for the Future

Award Date: May 18, 2023
Awarded: $250,000

Hope for the Future (H4TF) is a visitation center where children who are in foster care due to child abuse and/or neglect have court-ordered family time with their parents in a home-like setting. As part of the family reunification process, H4TF aims to improve these children's nurturing care as they regain their dignity and become strengthened. This grant allows H4TF to hire additional staff to permit the Executive Director to focus her efforts toward long-term program coordination, sustainability, and succession planning. This includes efforts to increase contract revenue and community fundraising and strengthen the overall organizational structure. The grant will also allow the agency to improve data tracking and tackle capacity growth by allowing for longer visits at more flexible times and includes support for salary and benefits for five staff.
