Family Day at the Outdoor Discovery Center

Family Hope Foundation would like to invite you to the Outdoor Discovery Center in Holland, Michigan, for an afternoon of fun for the whole family! The event will be held on Saturday, September 22, from 1:00pm - 4:00pm.  The Outdoor Discovery Center is a nature preserve that gives visitors the opportunity to experience and learn about animals, reptiles, fish, and birds.  Several miles of accessible walking trails make it a wonderful place for the entire family!  This special day which will include:  demonstrations with live animals by a naturalist, discovery of animals and artifacts housed in several locations in the preserve, catch and release fishing, the opportunity to learn about live birds of prey that are native to our area, and the exploration of several miles of trails.  Stay tuned for sign up information we get closer to the date of this event.


Special Families Fun Fest

Special Families Fun Fest was a unique event; one that was enjoyed by families, Family Hope Foundation (FHF), and the DeltaPlex Arena.  It is a difficult decision, but FHF is no longer able to host Fun Fest.  We are thankful for the five years we were able to offer this amazing event to our community.  With a small staff, the event has grown too large for our organization to effectively manage.  Family Hope Foundation remains committed to offering meaningful and accommodating family fun events for the special needs community. This is a key piece of our mission and will remain a priority as we move forward.  Thank you for your understanding.

 We were absolutely elated to receive your scholarship to help pay for programming for our son, Samuel, who is on the autism spectrum. We have been working with Horizons Developmental Resource Center for a couple of years and have seen wonderful social changes for Samuel. The cost is high, which makes each year of paying for programming a matter of prayer and sacrifice to our family with our spending. It is a relief to have this scholarship to help us pay for Samuel's programming. We are so impressed with the progress Samuel has made with his social skills. Samuel will now communicate his needs and concerns with words instead of crying and having a temper tantrum. We see Samuel work toward completing activities independently instead of needing constant prompts from us. Another wonderful change is that Samuel desires to interact with peers, instead of hiding from them. Again, thank you for helping us to continue to offer the best programming for Samuel!
