About Us

Since 1996, New Hope for Kids has been helping Central Florida children in need. Our purpose is to bring hope, healing and happiness to children and families suffering from grief, loss or life-threatening illnesses. New Hope for Kids achieves this through two programs:

The Center for Grieving Children helps children and families cope with the feelings of grief and loss after the death of a loved one.

Wishes for Kids grants wishes to children up to the age 19, diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

Funding comes primarily through charitable donations by individuals, corporations, foundations and community service organizations in Central Florida. No funding is received from government agencies. New Hope for Kids is a registered 501(c)(3) organization.

New Hope for Kids is governed by a volunteer board of directors from the Central Florida community. David C. Joswick, serves as the Executive Director. He is known in the Central Florida community as an advocate of children, focusing on the difficulties associated with grief and loss.
