The Foundation for Hope Village is a 501(c)(3) organization
The Foundation for Hope Village is a non-profit foundation dedicated to building and operating Hope Village, which is located in Friendswood, Texas, just south of Houston. The Village, which opened in 1970, is located on 18 acres donated by Louis and Hildegard Strey.
Currently, we have five separate homes each built in a different style to resemble a neighborhood. The first of the five homes was opened in 1970 and since that time four homes have been added. Home # 5 opened in 2002 and provides a higher level of care for those Villagers requiring it. Each home is licensed by either the Texas Department of Human Services or the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
A new 14,000 square foot Developmental Center was opened in 2000. It replaced the original one, which opened in 1972 in order to provide job training and employment for residents and day program participants from surrounding communities.
The Developmental Center incorporates a new, expanded work program, Ceramics manufacturing, a Gift Shop, the Village Cafe' and a large, fully equipped kitchen. This was made possible with substantial capital grants from the Fondren Foundation, the Brown Foundation, Houston Endowment, Inc. and the William Stamps Farish Fund.
Hope Village should be breaking ground in early 2015 for an Education and Community Building. This building will provide new classrooms and plenty of space for our special events.
"We looked at six other facilities and found we liked Hope Village far
and above all the others we visited."
