Setting up the Raising Hope site is fairly easy.  All participants must be referred by one of the A Lot of Good partners (Community, Outreach or Hospital) to verify that both a financial need and a challenging circumstance are present.  From there, one of our representatives will work with the person directly to guide you through the process and help you upload your own videos, photos and story.  The only real requirements are for the matching grant (when available). For details, send an email to and be sure to put RAISING HOPE INFO in the title.
