Since 1968, Hope Children’s Home has cared for over 5,000 abandoned, abused, neglected, and orphaned children from newborn to 18 years old. Their children have come from not only the United States, but all over the world. They do not receive government funding, but are supported 100% by individuals, churches, businesses, and organizations.
The home is located in northwest Tampa, Florida on 55 beautifully wooded acres of land. The campus consists of dormitories for the boys and girls that can house a total of 80 children as well as beautiful 4,000 sq. ft. cottages that care for their younger children and allows siblings to live together. The children live in a family atmosphere with house parents who are with them twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to give guidance and encouragement.
Hope Christian School is also located on their property and is accredited by the state of Florida, providing a private, quality, Christian education to each of their children including a well rounded sports program. Over 90% of the students who graduate from Hope Christian School will continue to college.
We don't know exactly what we'll do for Hope Children's Home yet but it could be landscaping, painting, or cleaning. We'll know more as this event gets closer and their specific needs are identified.
You can also bring your children to help and they will sign off on community service hours if any of your kids need to log them. Children 16 and under will need to have a parent or guardian with them.
