50 years ago, “Aunt Margaret” Liephart gave Rev. Paul Kiewit a $5.00 bill. “We need to do something in Ohio to help families with loved ones like my Bobby. Here’s five dollars to get it started.”
50 years later, Hope Homes serves adults with developmental disabilities and special needs in more than 25 homes throughout Ohio. By partnering with local advocacy groups, government agencies, and churches, it operates high-quality programs that promote the participation of people with disabilities in the life of their communities.
Our plan for the future directs Hope Homes Foundation to provide creative vision, leadership, and to continue to participate in cooperative relationships that are helpful to individuals, communities and the entire Hope Homes Family.
We are grateful to everyone who has served and supported Hope Homes. We believe that the future will provide continued opportunity to serve in partnerships with our communities, government, and churches. We will continue to strive to work together...to serve in ways in which we benefit our communities most effectively. With your help we will continue to faithfully walk into renewed ways of expressing our mission.
On the 50th anniversary of Aunt Margaret’s gift, we are asking you to give generously and to challenge your family, friends, and co-workers to do the same. Remember: it all started with $5.00.
