What We Do

The High Hopes Foundation exists to support the inclusion of children with special needs in their local communities. Our first endeavor was to raise funds to issue a start up grant to bring an inclusive child care facility, High Hopes Child Care, to Sarpy County. The High Hopes Child Care Center opened January 3, 2022, and serves children with special needs alongside their neurotypical peers. We will have medical staff on site to provide support for the medical needs of children that we care for and through our strategic community partnerships, we provide access to OT, PT, Speech and ABA therapy intraday. We also partner with local school districts to provide on site support for children through the Early Development Network. In addition to our ongoing support of High Hopes Child Care, the High Hopes Foundation engages in advocacy efforts, connects individuals with community resources and offers ongoing training for parents and caregivers.

Interesting Info
  • The concept for the High Hopes Foundation began in 2018 when two moms of children with special needs saw a need in the community and decided to fill that need.
  • We plan to serve approximately 83 children once the High Hopes Child Care Center opens in the fall of 2021.
  • We exist to offer families of children with special needs hope. Our intent is to grow this small, local non-profit into a national organization.
