We do not, and have never, charged for our services. We rely on donations, sponsors and grants to fund our peer program. If we have made a difference in your life, or that of someone you love or you simply believe in the work that we do, please consider making a donation. Thank you for your kindness.

  • $50 gives the gift of hope to a husband and wife
  • $100 gives the gift to hope to a newly injured boy and his parents
  • $500 gives the gift of hope and services to a Mom bedridden in a nursing home, lost in the system

If your company offers gift matching, it is an easy way to double your donation.
