Watch a short Video of The Hope Fund
The Hope Fund is an all volunteer non-profit program in Hillsborough County, Florida. Most of our services are in the town of Wimauma, Fl. 100% of all funds raised are for the children. There are no administrative fees.
Many of our volunteers are residents in the area of Sun City Center, Florida and Ruskin, Florida. They offer their time and talent to the children of Wimauma, in particular, those in need of special friendship, kindness and skill development.
The Hope Fund is always searching for new members and programs. If you would like to volunteer for a current program, or have a special talent you would like to share, The Hope Fund would welcome your contributions.

HOPE FUND VISION
Our vision is to remove the educational, social and cultural barriers that could prevent a migrant child from reaching their full potential. This requires trust between an adult and child, time spent with the child, and a community to serve as both a safe haven and reliable resource for the child.
We offer a safe and nurturing environment for children, through planned and supervised after school programs.
Our mentoring program, tutoring and reading programs provide life skills and strategies to improve a child's outcomes, whether it be academic, social or behavior-based.
HOPE FUND MISSION
The Hope Fund for Children mission is to help children have a better life through education and enrichment activities,and to provide a safe and nurturing environment for our children.
