Amazing!!!! Inheritance of Hope is the most intentional, beautiful organization I've ever come across. It's been an honor to serve with them and a true joy. They have an excellent balance between making memories and intentionally equipping parents and children for the challenges they face.
Having supported Inheritance of Hope's vision for years I was so excited to finally get to volunteer for one of their retreats. It exceeded my expectations in every way. The team at IOH had thought of every detail to make these 27 families comfortable. Every family left with a feeling of family, a support system and a legacy for their family. Every volunteer left with a full heart. Inheritance of Hope fills a very big need for families with an ill parent. Well done!!
This group worked well together during a very busy time in Orlando last month. A new venue, crowded streets, transportation blips were handled with grace and the families that attended the Legacy Retreat were unaware of the struggles due to the efficiency and flexibility of the staff. The leadership this group exhibits is outstanding as they care for each and every member of the families in attendance. It is exciting to be a part of such a large, cohesive, thoughtful group with such an important common focus---which is to Inspire Hope......
I feel Inheritance of Hope is a valuable non profit because they dedicate all monies towards their retreats for families with young children who have a parent with a life-threatening illness. The counselors work with the parents and children to help them understand and discuss what they are feeling. The staff and volunteers work tirelessly to help the families create memories that will last a lifetime. I have just finished my third retreat and I am already looking forward to the next time. I feel my time is well spent since the organisers have every minute well planned. This is a very worthwhile organisation.
Volunteering for Inheritance of Hope has been one of the most enriching experiences. In 4 days you have a new relationship with multiple families that can endure a lifetime. Being a volunteer for IOH has given me new perspective on how we are to be the hands and feet of Jesus for these families.
I have volunteered at 3 of the Legacy retreats and have helped in other ways. Every decision and every step that IOH takes is done with great thought and planning and done in a way to use its finances with the utmost care. The needs of the families are always paramount in the way decisions are made and the way IOH goes about its business.
It is a privilege to volunteer in such an organization and to serve these families.
My story with IOH began in 2014 when my family had the chance to experience a legacy retreat in Orlando.
My wife and four children were so welcomed by the IOH staff and volunteers we were overwhelmed by love and support. Amy my wife was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer and pasted away in April of 2014. That retreat was the last time that my oldest son was able to experice life with his mom and even though he was in college IOH still found a way to get him there even having to reschedule his flight because of bad weather. This time together as a family will never leave my mind and how wonderful it was to receive the support and council that we needed at that time.
Well here it is 2016 now and I have had the opportunity to give back to other hurting families through this nonprofit organization. I have volunteered at three more retreats and have completely enjoyed serving and helping love on these other families that are hurting so badly in this time of life. I understand what it means to care for your spouse until she dies in your arms. IOH gave me the tools to help navigate through that time in my life and I will continue to help them serve and love others that are going through that time in their lives. Thanks IOH for all that you do and have done for me and my kids.
In 2010 I was Family member of this amazing organization, my Husband passed away in 2012 from his Cancer diagnosis.
Inheritance of Hope Team was such a blessing to us.
I started volunteering with Inheritance of Hope in Jan 2013 in the memory of Enis.
Inheritance of Hope has added so much Joy to my life.
AMAZING once again!! This was my 4th retreat to volunteer for and the IOH TEAM never forgets one detail it seems, if they do Id never know it.
I love the passion, love and devotion IOH shows, all the Smiles on the Families faces is worth every moment of my sore feet and lack of sleep.. LOL
Id serve every month if it was possible.
Way to go IOH your amazing and Kristen and Deric started all of this Joy by listening to Gods calling...
Amazing organization that provides hope and encouragement for families dealing with terminal illness. The organization is well run, very organized and focused on all the right things: the parent, the family and God. I was blessed to encounter this experience and be able to be a part of an amazing family of support to those who feel really alone.
Inheritance of Hope has a lasting impact on families facing the loss of a parent, and it is a blessing to me to be able to witness it first hand. I see families arrive sometimes unsure of what to expect; they leave encouraged and filled with great memories together. I am thankful for Inheritance of Hope!
