Review for New Hope Foundation, Inc., West Palm Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I was first asked to assist this organization with a fund raiser I didn't think much about it. One non-profit is much like another, trying to do good. What a surprise I had. New Hope is fabulous. when the whole world focused on New Orleans after Katrina no one even knew that Pahokee & Belle Glades Florida had been suffering far worst for years after being hit by 5 hurricanes in 2 years. New Hope had been there before offering, children's programs for reading, after school care, health clincs for women and children, Holiday toy give away, and so much more. The families and children of Pahokee are very poor, other than sugar cane farming there is little to no industry. Sugar Cane farming has become more mechanized therefore there are less jobs. without New Hope many of these people might go hungry, have no medical care, the children would not finish or even go to school. Yes there is Hope in Pahokee because of NEW HOPE.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The Christmas Toy give away to more thana 1000 children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Caring, committed, long standing and knowledgable of the needs and ways to work miracles.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It would change the lives of every person in what is called the Glades in south Florida. Housing and Health care I am sure would be their top priority.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
