IN THIS ISSUE: A Personal Touch Preparing for our Tenants MissionMakers How to Help

This 4-bedroom, 2-bath home was purchased through the collaboration of the City of Norwalk and HOPE.

A Personal Touch.

A sense of home


Having a home of your own is something to treasure. The new house in Norwalk has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, providing housing for 3 new tenants. Our goal is that they will be able to spend the holidays in their new home. To do that, HOPE first has to complete approximately $25,000 in renovations, including landscaping. Acquiring this property moves HOPE closer to our goal of doubling our affordable housing over the next three years. As part of that goal, HOPE plans to purchase two buildings in Long Beach to house 16 additional people. In addition, HOPE is exploring funding opportunities in other cities from Santa Clarita to Burbank and down to Torrance to continue creating affordable housing for persons with developmental disabilities.

Preparing for our tenants 1

Providing affordable housing for persons with developmental disabilities is only the first part of what HOPE strives to do. We also want to help our tenants create a home. To us that means creating warm and inviting shared spaces—living room, kitchen, dining area. And, of course, landscaping. As HOPE Executive Director Kristin Martin observes, “The yard is a blank canvas. At some of our other homes, supporters and volunteers have helped us to create wonderful low-water/droughttolerant yards. We are looking to do something similar at our latest house.” With your help, we can make this house a fabulous home. Please click on the following page to make a taxdeductible donation to HOPE and provide our tenants with all the comforts of home.

Thank you for your support for the residents of our newest affordable home. Below is a sampling of the kinds of things our tenants need. Your gift of any size helps to make this new house their home.
