Capital Campaign

Make Room for HOPE

Make Room for HOPE

The Make Room for HOPE Capital Campaign will build a permanent home for Mourning Hope - a special place where thousands of children and families will find their way forward after devastating loss. In addition to housing Mourning Hope, the new facility will provide on-site wellness programs, offering therapeutic support services so families can thrive in the face of adversity.

Since its founding over two decades ago, Mourning Hope has operated from rental facilities. While the demand for grief support services is immense and continually rising, the physical space available for Mourning Hope's programs is vastly inadequate and impractical for optimal program delivery. Together with an amazing group of community leaders we are calling Team Hope, we will secure 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 will get the caring support they need at the right time, the Make Room for HOPE Capital Campaign will make Lincoln a stronger community for everyone.

The Make Room for HOPE Capital Campaign launched in September 2018. Construction began following a ground-breaking ceremony on May 16, 2019, and Mourning Hope plans to relocate to the new facility in the summer of 2020.
