Make Room for HOPE Capital Campaign
The Make Room for HOPE Capital Campaign, launched in 2018, built Mourning Hope's first permanent home - a special place where thousands of children and families will find their way forward after devastating loss. In addition to housing Mourning Hope, the facility offers therapeutic support services so families can thrive in the face of adversity.
Since its founding in 1994, Mourning Hope had operated from rental facilities. While the demand for grief support services was immense and continually rising, the physical space available for Mourning Hope's programs was vastly inadequate and impractical for optimal program delivery. Together with an amazing group of community leaders we call Team Hope, we secured the future of Mourning Hope as a valued community service, while also expanding access and improving opportunities to connect families with other kinds of therapeutic, community-based support.
By ensuring more children and families get the caring support they need at the right time, the Make Room for HOPE Capital Campaign made Lincoln a stronger community for everyone.
