After more than three decades, High Hopes has perfected the concept of meeting people where they are. For us, that means not being intimidated by a diagnosis or inability - that is our specialty, to find solutions for challenges that families did not see coming and prove there is hope in adversity. High Hopes is a non-profit organization that loves, nurtures, and educates children with and without special needs through two integrate programs, an inclusive school and a pediatric therapy clinic, helping each child reach their maximum potential.
While High Hopes is a revenue generating nonprofit, our revenue does not cover all the costs associated with standing in the gap for these children and families, and we need your help. Our development team is charged with raising more than $800,000 annually, and accomplishes this enormous challenge through gifts from individuals, corporations, foundations, grants, the United Way . . . and hosting annual fundraisers. These events not only allow us to cast our net wider, but also garner support while sharing our mission outside our walls.
Our four signature events are designed to provide unique experiences and the opportunity to help provide inclusive education and pediatric therapy to hundreds of Middle Tennessee families.
This year, we have added a new event, Runway of Hope, a fashion show featuring our children with special needs..
Throughout each year, other events may be added to our calendar, so check our Events Page often!
