Introducing our Garden of Hope

GARDEN OF HOPE

To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow. These words are very meaningful to the Herris Peckett family. Board member Barbara Peckett was drawn to the Memory Garden project from the beginning, as was her husband Chet. He graduated from the University of FL in Horticulture Sciences and has been a horticulturalist for forty years. Plants have been an important part of their family’s lives for decades.

Matching Money

We’re so happy to announce that the HCF Foundation has pledged $50,000 in matching money to New Hope for Kids! This means your donation will double, helping twice as many kids! This is the perfect time to turn your $20 into $40… your $100 into $200… all for the kids in our grief and wish programs.

Saffran Scholarship

Winter Park resident Pam Saffran and her three children know how hard it is to move forward after traumatic loss. They also know the critical role community support plays in keeping dreams alive.

The Saffrans have partnered with local nonprofit New Hope for Kids to award $2,000 college scholarships to four local students who experienced the death of a parent and demonstrated perseverance in the face of that adversity.
