Inheritance of Hope (IoH) is expanding its offerings with the launch of its first Hope Hub™ in the Washington, D.C. area. Through local in-person support for young families facing the loss of a parent due to terminal illness, Hope Hub™ offers hope-inspired relationships and resources for all members of the family, while building a hope-filled community of care.
With the launch of Hope Hub™, Inheritance of Hope (IoH) is expanding into new programming–ongoing, in-person support for young families facing the terminal illness of a parent. The pilot program will be held in the Washington, D.C. area, but plans are in the works for more Hope Hub™ locations.
A kick-off event complete with catered dinner, family fun for all ages, and connection time for children, teens, and parents will be held on April 23, 2022 from 5:00 – 8:00pm at the New Hope Church in Lorton, Virginia.
Families are invited to continue the community-building through gatherings on May 14th, June 18th, and monthly dates still to be announced.
Tessa Martinson, IoH Groups Coordinator, said, “Participating in a Hope Hub™ will help people make connections and give them opportunities to really show up for each other.” Tessa understands the difficulties of raising children while a parent battles terminal illness–her family was served by IoH–and she explained, “One thing I have realized and appreciated is that you are not walking this road alone. IoH has inspired me to live with more intentionality, while giving my children and me support, resources, and a community of people who get it.”
