Forever Hope is a non-for-profit organization whose mission is undertaking the human needs of individuals within underserved communities.
In the West Haven community, with the help of our sponsors, last year we provided school supplies, over 300 book bags, health screenings, food, and entertainment. We will continue providing these services annually.
Our work with at risk youth is one of the driving forces of our agency and we will focus on programs that will fosters self-confidence, leadership skills, and positive decision making through mentorship, music, art, culture, literature, and sports.
Our STEAM CAMP STEM Music and Art Program is set to launch this Spring/Summer 2017 and will impact at risk youth ages 8-18.
