Each year, our warm pools provide rehabilitation and wellness to over 1500 children with special needs, the elderly and people with disabilities. Our warm pools are credited in helping many people to improve their health.
Our clients experience a wealth of positive benefits from our warm pools - improving their physical, mental and social well-being. We can't thank our patrons enough for their support...and we hope that on Giving Tuesday, each of you will make a donation for a critical need at the Pools of Hope!
Our organization needs to re-plaster our pool. Our goal is to raise $35,000 and 100% of your donation will go towards this project!
Your contribution will help to improve the health of Carrie and many others like her, including children with developmental disabilities, veterans, and our aging neighbors, who use our pools for rehabilitation, exercise, and swimming to live their best life.
