Since our founding in 1964 as DARE Family Services to now — 60 years later — HopeWell continues to be a leader in care and a force for good.
Throughout this journey, we’ve met the most pressing needs of the children, families, and individuals we serve through resourceful approaches and pragmatic, deliberate action. At the same time, our work to ensure brighter futures and more equitable systems for those in our care has been guided by our ambitious goals, our bold ideas, and our intrepid energy. In other words, we have our head in the clouds and our feet on the ground.
So as we set our eyes, minds, and hearts toward the next 60 years and beyond, we are committed and excited to build on this vibrant history — as we expand our programs, lead systemic change, and bolster the well-being of our workforce.
But we can’t write this story without you!
Please join us at our 2024 gala, Dare to Hope, as we come together to celebrate 60 years of impact, look toward the future, and rally around the children, families, and individuals who count on HopeWell. We can’t wait to see you and celebrate with you!
