Project HOPE School Foundation is an amazing organization that helps better the lives of some of the many homeless children in Orange County. They are the backbone to Project HOPE School. I have volunteered at several events and truely believe in giving HOPE.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that I have seen what they have been able to establish with the support from donors and sponsors.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do nothing but tell them to reach higher! They need to aim high to recieve great rewards.

I had a first hand experience with the Project Hope School when a team member at my work suggested that we get involved. I worked directly with Pam. From the beginning, we were amazed at the resources provided to these children.

#1 - The diversity in edcuational opportunities is outstanding. Among the many volunteers that contribute their time and energy to these students are highly educated instructors, artists and teachers.

#2 - the stability that is provided to these children is very effective in child development. Having a family that is unsure of their changes in living arrangements from month to month can be devastating to a child, but with the consistency that Project Hope Provides, and the reliable method of communication to and from school, these children actually have a fighting chance of recovering from difficult situations beyond their control.

#3 - the integrity behind the staff and their hope, passion and dedication to this children is genuine. Their hearts are in it! They love and care for these children, just because.

Volunteering is EASY - Just providing canned food or non-perishables is a big help. We saw small donations come together and make an enormous impact. . . just like Stone Soup! :o)

These families are given hope for their children and that gives these parents the strength to go out and work another day as they strive to recover from their circumstances.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being blessed by knowing that they exist.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to generate more funds, awareness, resources. They need consistent volunteers that can help out. They need more able-bodied people to come and help. I live 45 minutes away and it is very difficult to make it to Project Hope on a regular basis. I would also vote accordingly to ensure that local and federal acts do not negatively impact this organization. As wonderful as the intent was behind "No Child Left Behind" it did not have a positive impact on this organization.

I have been involved with Project Hope school since 1990 when the Rotary Club I belonged to asked me to help with a project. This project ......taking the children Christmas shopping for their family members was started in 1989. I have been the chair person on this project ever since that first day of involved. I have really gooten to know the students and the staff. This school is a contant place for the children, they have one on one relationships developing wuith the staff in their often world of chaos.
Every year the Rotarians look forward to taking these families shopping. This project pulls more volunteers than any other Rotary project and has one of the largest budgets. Needless to say, the Orange Roatary loves Hope School and stands behind them in any waty we can

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have been involved with this organization for 12 years. I have seen the school grow double digit numbers. I have seen happy, smiling children learn and thrive.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

none.
