With out Dreams of Hope (DOH) so many families would not have meals to eat. And that is just one of the many kind acts that occur daily at DOH! If your stomach is not full your mind is slow to receive any good message! DOH helps connect the dots with mental health and basic needs. From free meals, toiletries, clothes, glasses and rides to appointments to mental health groups and individual therapy DOH provides hope for the underserved!

The Dreams of Hope Foundation is a pivotal nonprofit in our area providing meals, clothing, supplies, food baskets, and support to those in our community. They have been nothing but a blessing to many, including myself.

As an individual working in the human services field, I have called upon this agency multiple times to assist individuals that my agency supports. Simone and her staff have assisted my clients when many agencies turned them away. This assistance has been from financial support (rental assistance, electrical assistance, co-pays for doctors visits and specialized exams), to assisting in meeting the the individual’s need for clothing/toiletries/food/household supplies, to being able to provide resources that maybe able to further assist when needed. Simone has taken the time out of her day to sit with my clients to get to know them, better understand their needs, and assist them in developing a plan to become more self-sufficient. Simone and her staff exemplifies the epitome of what it takes to work together for the common good of those in our local communities that need us the most through rough times that we all have or will experience in our life to some degree.
