Inheritance if Hope's mission is uniquely designed for families with young children and a parent fighting life threatening illnesses. We continue to see God's healing work firsthand in all that they do. We are committed to volunteering with them as long as we are able.

In January of 2014, my husband John was diagnosed with ALS. Eight months later, my family attended a legacy retreat. Our boys were 10 and 4 at the time, and we were all excited about going to Disney World as a family. We had no idea the lasting impact the Inheritance of Hope team would have on us and how they would teach us about being intentional and enjoying our time together as we faced such a life-changing and difficult disease.

We were immediately blown away by their kindness and attention to detail. From park tickets and airport pick ups to personal volunteers and date night childcare, and everything in between, someone thought of it and was taking care of it for us, so that we could focus on making precious memories with our family. And as the mom and caregiver, I can't tell you enough what a gift it was to not have to plan, troubleshoot, and work so hard for once. Not only that, but we were able to connect with other families facing similar trials, to share our stories and our hearts, and to become family.

Our faith was also reinforced by Inheritance of Hope as they presented the gospel of Jesus to families as the source of their hope and explained the importance of leaving a legacy of faith for our children. But they don't discriminate. They don't judge or force. They simply serve every family with hearts full of compassion, gentleness and love.

I will always be grateful for the memories we made, the friendships we formed and the lessons we learned during our Legacy Retreat. (I am sorry it took me so long to post my review, but I understand it to be better late than never.)

Inheritance of Hope is a wonderful organization. We couldn't have asked for anything better. They took care of every single detail. The best part was the actual counseling we got, the camaraderie and the friendships that were made will last a lifetime. Our volunteer Patrick was awesome. He helped us out so much. IoH will always be a part of our Family.

The trip to Orlando that Inheritance of Hope provided my family was an experience that far exceeded my expectations. I was expecting to enjoy some fellowship with other families that are experiencing the same reality that our family is, but the counselors, staff and volunteers made this trip one that our family will never forget and cherish forever. Everyone took tremendous care of our family and made sure all details were taken care of so we could enjoy the trip. My family will always be grateful for the for this gift!

This is a great charity that does wonderful things for the children and parents where the family has been touched by a terminal illness. They have directly ministered to our family in an amazing way. I will most certainly be donating if I possibly can in the future to help another family receive the blessings that we did. The volunteers were awesome and this organization is meticulous with the details. All of this goes into making an unparalleled special experience that helps families create memories and legacies that will last a life time!

Our fall retreat 2016 was a life changing experience for our family. It truly was an honor being a part of this organization and look forward to a lifelong relationship. The volunteers were the most giving, selfless and attentive people. We were overwhelmed with the kindness and understanding that each of us had with our situations. IOH is hands down the best organization in assistating families with the difficult events families are all faced with. We feel better prepared and supported after our experience and are forever grateful we had this opportunity.
