The Hellenic Hope Center is dedicated to providing support and services to people with physical and developmental disabilities and their families. We aspire to improve the quality of their lives and to ensure that people with
special needs are treated with the respect and dignity to which every person is entitled.
The idea for our organization was conceived in February 1999 when several mothers, of Hellenic descent with children with special needs, met to discuss the need for a support mechanism for themselves, their children
and their families. Many other families also welcomed this idea and proceeded to formalize our organization.
In June 2000, our organization was incorporated as a non-profit charitable corporation. Members meet regularly to assess programs and services.
