Review for Inheritance of Hope , Pisgah Forest, NC, USA
As a volunteer, twin sister of a family served, and donor of this incredible organization, I cannot say enough about the massive impact this organization makes in the lives of the families it serves. Not only do they create the opportunity for a free vacation with no stress and limitless memories that will be remembered by these children for the rest of their lives, but they give support to the families (and kids as well) in many instances for the rest of their lives.
There are no words to explain how powerful it is for a family going through crisis to have the opportunity to talk with other families going through the same thing. Especially for the children, who up until meeting other kids at this retreat often feel very alone in their family situation.
Once a family leaves a retreat, they continue to be uplifted not only by the staff and volunteers, but by the other families they met while on the retreat. Watching the powerful influence this organization has on these families has been a miracle in my life, and one I will never forget.
Another amazing thing about the organization is how many volunteers are willing to put themselves out there and really care - even knowing the emotional stress it can have. The volunteers are incredible, and so numerous that you often have to get on a waiting list to volunteer!
Sadly, the only reason this organization isn't holding these retreats more often is money. Please consider donating (it costs the organization about $5,000 for each family they support), and helping make it possible to change the lives and perspectives of these families, volunteers, staff and many others.
