We have expanded the mission of Melissa’s Hope to provide grants to families with special needs children.  Grants have included a new wheelchair, a trip (vacation for the family), money to help pay medical bills, etc. Recipients are selected from recommendations to the Board of Directors by area hospitals and organizations.  The criteria used to select recipients include family income, medical needs and why items are required. We know that Melissa would be thrilled to see us helping those special needs children in need.
