Hands Offering People Empowerment in Society
ABC Hopes, Inc. is a nonprofit organization established in 2013. We are dedicated to empowering individuals with Down Syndrome. Through our organizations programs and services we hope to help the individuals we work with develop skills that will increase the employment opportunities available to them and as a result increase their involvement in the community. Find out how you can contribute to the future of someone with Down Syndrome through charitable donations and time.
ABC Hopes mission is to empower individuals with Down Syndrome to contribute to society in a positive manner by giving them job opportunities that develop their social and educational skills.
We will be accomplishing our mission by training our participants to manage and operate a produce stand at one of our local farmers markets; selling produce they have grown or harvested from the local community.
On top of operating a produce stand at the local market, ABC Hopes participants will be giving back to the community. All of their unsold produce after each week will be given to homeless shelters, food pantries, and other charitable organizations in the community.
