Let's Do This Thing!

We're looking for you! Yes, you.

We're looking for every parent of a child with special needs. We're looking for their family members. We're looking for the professionals who help them. We're looking for the organizations who provide them care. We're looking for the businesses whose products make their lives easier.

Can you imagine for a moment what it would look like if "the village" that cares for children with special needs came together as one, enormous unit to advocate on behalf of the children and the families who raise them?

Imagine for a moment the changes we could make within our government, our health care systems, our society?

We parents struggle with anxiety and depression, with finances, with health insurance, with awareness and sensitivity, and so much more.

Society doesn't take us into account much -- and, at this time, why should it? We are the minority.

The only way any minority has ever changed society is by coming together with one voice and advocating for themselves. Hopeful Parents has a bold vision that someday, we are able to do just that.

Every journey starts with the first step, and ours is no different.

In order to get to "someday," we need to start with today. We need to step-up and be counted as an individual or organization committed to making the world a better place for children who have special needs and their families.

Please, join us today.
