We just got back from our Legacy Retreat experience. I don't want to be obnoxious, but I did rave-blog about it here: http://www.elisebarrett.com/2015/05/inheritance-of-hope-our-legacy-retreat/. It was simply amazing.

We attended the May 2015 Orlando retreat and It far exceeded anything we imagined !! Everything was planned for us , the volunteers and staff were amazing and helpful in every way possible.. Our 10 year son was especially struggling the last couple years with anger issues over his dads cancer and no one was able to get him to open up. After one morning of group activity/counseling sessions he opened up and started asking questions and talking to us about his dads cancer! What a blessing and an answer to our prayers.. We were also able to connect to people our own age in similar situations which had never happened before and we all came home with a wonderful feeling of not being along and being able to cope better!! Absolutely nothing but wonderful memories from the time we arrived!! Wonderful retreat and a answer to our prayers. We were treated like royalty the entire trip :)

How can you say anything bad about a free trip that allows you to make cherished memories with your loved ones? These people are special and our trip was so amazing we plan to volunteer in the future. All of the fun planned stuff is great, but for us getting to know the other families was the best part. Whatever your fears are about going with a bunch of strangers, put them aside. It's so worth it. It's the first time you won't feel like the only sick one in a room and your kids will have a blast! I'm so thankful for our trip with IOH.

Inheritance of Hope is an amazing organization with absolutely wonderful volunteers. Going into the legacy retreat, I had an slight idea of what to expect, but my expectations were far exceeded. The volunteers went completely above & beyond their duties for all the families. My family & I were able to make nationwide friends that I pray will last a lifetime. We were treated as VIP's from the very beginning to even now, after returning home. This organization has truly touched my heart in a special way!!! I am so thankful and blessed to have been a recipient of the NYC IoH legacy retreat.

It's hard to put into words how to tell about our experience with IOH. It was truly amazing. The people we meet have become friends. The volunteers and staff made us feel so special. We felt like we received VIP service and attention. It was an experience our family will never forget. Thank you all so much for your caring and loving attention you gave our family.

I have volunteered with Inheritance of Hope two times. I love this amazing organization. IoH truly seek to help families facing the potential loss of a parent. Not only does IoH give families a retreat to have a good time, but they also seek to equip the families with tools to get through such a difficult time. I love serving with IoH and cannot wait to serve again.

Inheritance of Hope is truly an amazing organization, Our family was part of the August 2014 retreat and the support and kindness of the team and volunteers is amazing. Living with cancer isn't always easy and for a few days, my family and I were able to make some wonderful memories and spend time together. The opportunity to think about my legacy and the legacy of our family has changed me forever. I have such hope for the future and my family and IOH played a huge role in how I can do this.

Inheritance of Hope came into our lives just as we needed them the most. The trip was much needed as a family. The days spent at the amusement parks has created a lifetime of memories for my children. The counseling sessions provided an often overlooked aspect to dealing with a serious illness in a family. There are not enough thank you's for the wonderful work done by all the volunteers and staff of Inheritance of Hope

Our family was privileged to be a part of the August 2014 Inheritance of Hope Legacy Retreat. We can honestly say that it was absolutely phenomenal. We had a feeling, ahead of time, that this was not just a regular vacation. And we were correct in that assumption. It was SO MUCH more! And it was exactly what we needed.

We were able to meet and bond with families going through similar situations as us. We obtained the skills to help us navigate through this extremely difficult season of our lives. The group sessions were priceless. We were relieved to find out that there are others out there who really DO understand what we are experiencing. We made lifetime friends. We are deeply grateful to IoH for all they do for the families during this retreat. It was truly amazing!

We were delightfully surprised at every turn during our time with IoH! The volunteers were incredible. They served very selflessly and are remarkable people. From the top of the leadership and downward…every single person involved in making this retreat happen treated us as if we were an extraordinary family. And they made every single family feel that way! We are quite humbled to have been able to participate. We look at life through a different lens now, and we are better human beings for it.

We received many blessings while on this retreat. The biggest one of all being - healing. Although we didn’t want it to end, and we made many new friends…we felt happy, healed, and much stronger as we went our separate ways. We thank God for this blessing.

Thank you Inheritance of Hope, for the incredible things you do for others!

The care and attention to detail that Inheritance of Hope has is phenomenal. Everything is done with such love, that little is overlooked and any hiccup is immediately remedied. I was a first time volunteer on the August Legacy Retreat and not only was this retreat life changing for the families who participated, but for the volunteers as well. These retreats are coordinated to offer fun and family time, but also a fellowship with the other families and the volunteers that will make a lasting impression. The word Hope is not just in the title, it resonates throughout the retreat in such a powerful way from the beginning to the end. This is an organization that as soon as you get involved as an attendee or a volunteer, you are truly in the family!
