About Hope Strengthens Foundation
Hope Strengthens Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity founded by long-time friends James Fahey and Jacob Ferreira in 2010. Its roots were established when a mutual friend, Joe, valiantly battled against and beat cancer. Joe's drive towards remission was rooted in two simple words; Hope Strengthens. That motto not only drove Joe, it inspired his family and friends to come together as a community. In an effort to support him, many members of this community organized a fundraiser to ensure that he could focus all his energy on his recovery and rest easy knowing his expenses would be covered while out of work. It was this effort that energized Jim and Jake to create a foundation that could support others just like Joe. Today, Hope Strengthens Foundation exists because of Joe's strength and the unyielding support that can be found in communities all across our country.
Hope Strengthens Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that helps provide financial support to individuals and families whose lives have been burdened due to circumstances extending from illness or tragedy.
By easing the financial burden that hardships can inflict, Hope Strengthens Foundation provides those who affected with a sense of hope and an opportunity to focus on the problem at hand. We strongly believe that hope not only strengthens, it can heal.
