This is one of my favorite non-profits! They are transparent and truly serve the community. They don't just provide for the current needs of those who need their service, but teach, educate and prepare for their future needs. They offer so much to those in need and in turn have developed a strong network of volunteers and sponsors that see their vision and mission in action each and every day.

I am new to the area and I was looking at a way to give back. I found Hope Helps Inc. Currently I pick up donated food and delivery it to the food bank. I will be volunteering for other events soon. I am very impressed with how they operate and how many ways they help the people of the community. I have enjoyed working along with everyone.

This place is amazing, they have helped so many people and every day keep on helping. I love their store here in Oviedo, Florida; it is a really great store and I know if you shop there you will surely find something you need or want. The staff is also amazing at Hope and very friendly.

What a great organization.!

As a flight Attendant I stay very busy with travel but I wanted to find a local Organization where I could volunteer in my spare time that truly made a difference in my community .

That’s when I discovered “Hope Helps”.

Truly a breath of fresh air. They get it........a local proactive organization.

I enjoy volunteering (Christmas in the City/ Sham Rock n Run ect) as often as possible. I feel what they do and what little I can do makes a difference.

Keep up the great work.

I attended a seminar at Hope Helps for first time home buyers. They brought in multiple professionals to educate us on various things like home maintenance and home owners' insurance. I met my insurance agent there and still use him four years after the class. I would highly recommend this organization.

Our family has volunteered with HOPE since 2008. The leaders, staff and volunteers all dedicate their time to improve awareness, increase access and opportunities for those families in need in our local community. HOPE Helps was founded due to the lack of resources available for familes facing homelessness. Not only does HOPE provide the day to day needs with their food pantry it also hosts several events throughout the year. The Back to School Bash ensures children have the supplies they need to begin a new school year. The Christmas in the City event provides each family with a complete Christmas dinner, gifts for their children and many other supplies. The love and appreciation that goes into and comes out of this organization is amazing and we look forward to each opportunity we have to be a part of it.

I am a former employee of HOPE Helps. This is a great organization. I have worked for other non profits where I would never have been a donor too. However with HOPE I always felt that my dollars were well spent and they are helping people who really need it.

Been volunteer with help helps since the beginning. This organization does so much for the families in need in our community. Their New facility is top notch and the staff and volunteers strive for excellence to help anyone and everyone that are in need of food and resources. The Hope chest is their local thrift store and the sales from the store go directly to the families in need. We have the very generous community to provide donations to the store. I absolutely love to volunteer at the store and many of their local events such as Christmas in the city, back to school bash, shamrock and run. Thank you HOPE and keep up the good work.

HOPE Helps, Inc is such a wonderful non-profit organization who help families in crisis and prevent families from becoming homeless. They do help the homeless also with clothing, food and resources. HOPE works with many other organizations in our area to provide housing, outreach, prevention and education to so many families in need. They have hundreds of volunteers who dedicate many hours to helping on events, fundraisers, at the thrift store and food pantry. HOPE is an awesome organization!
