H.O.P.E. Foundation

"Bridging the Gap"

Each day a child is diagnosed with a severe illness. A child sustains a debilitating injury. A child goes to bed hungry, in an unsafe environment. A family loses the battle with a childhood illness. With these types of emergencies come unexpected expenses, in addition to severe emotional stress. It is our goal to help families suffering from pediatric emergencies by assisting financially in ways national foundations, charities and insurance agencies won�t cover. We also will work with the family to ensure they are utilizing all resources available to them in their time of tragedy and trauma.

Since the inception of the H.O.P.E. foundation, we�ve received requests to offset costs for medical travel, to help repair vehicles for travel to and from doctor appointments, to help pay partial funeral expenses and many others. There are so many unforeseen expenses that come with pediatric emergencies. We want to bridge the gap and make a difference in the lives of families facing the tragedy of a child.

The H.O.P.E. Foundation serves 22 counties in southwest Missouri, including Barry, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Dent, Douglas, Greene, Hickory, Howell, Laclede, Lawrence, Oregon, Ozark, Phelps, Polk, Pulaski, Shannon, Stone, Taney, Texas, Webster and Wright. The Chamber of Commerce defines these counties as being in the Springfield Economic Area and they are the counties serviced by Springfield hospitals.

What Families Are Saying About H.O.P.E.:

"We have to travel out of town for Kadie�s heart appointments, and our car broke down three days before surgery. Without the H.O.P.E. Foundation�s help we would not have made it to Kadie�s surgery. We are truly grateful for the help from H.O.P.E."

-Jennifer Gossett, recipient of H.O.P.E. Foundation assistance
