Our Story

HOPE Foundation provides both financial and emotional support to families whose children are battling pediatric emergencies. 

Each day a child is diagnosed with a severe illness, a child sustains a debilitating injury, and a family loses the battle with a childhood illness. With these types of emergencies come unexpected expenses. HOPE Foundation's mission is to help families facing these pediatric emergencies by providing financial assistance in ways national foundations, other charities and insurance companies don't. 

We proudly serve 22 counties in southwest Missouri.

HOPE Foundation receives requests to offset costs for things like: medical travel, vehicle repair, rent or mortgage payments, utility bills, funeral expenses and much more.

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 pediatric emergency.
