Welcome to Ragan’s HOPE!
Ragan’s HOPE Foundation, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with outreach internationally, was formed to help families through some really tough times. We are unique in that we do not focus our efforts on families of children with specific illnesses such as cancer, brain injury, autism, etc. We provide support to any family who is having to downsize, has need of a meal delivered to the hospital or just needing a little help adjusting to life challenges brought on by situations beyond their control. If we are not able to assist, we are networked with other organizations and individuals who may have the resources to help.
Ragan’s HOPE Foundation provides seasonal support for back-to-school, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas through our back-to-school backpack program, Easter Basket delivery, Thanksgiving starter kits, and Christmas Wish List. We have annual events, inviting all families to participate in sharing a meal and time of social interaction with other parents. This provides not only emotional support, but helps the parent(s) realize that they are not alone in their challenges.
Our volunteers enjoy volunteering their time when they are available. Volunteers are not placed on a set schedule of service. This allows them to take care of others while taking care of themselves and their families. Since we are a national organization, volunteers may transfer their volunteer time to their new community. This allows us to grow the organization organically in various regions of the country.
We are proud of the Ragan’s HOPE Foundation and the families we serve. We know that whether you are a family faced with difficulty or a volunteer who wants to help others, you will find a great group of people associated with Ragan’s HOPE.
