To provide safe, accessible, and affordable housing for people with developmental disabilities and other special needs.
Hope Homes Foundation is a housing provider for people with disabilities in Summit, Stark, Wayne and Warren Counties. Our vision began in 1963 when Margaret Leiphart spoke to her pastor Rev. Paul Kiewit about providing a home for her disabled son Bobby after she was gone and gave him $5 to get Hope started.
55 years later, we continue the legacy that they and so many families, businesses and churches (including ecumenical partners United Church of Christ and Presbyterian Church USA) turned into reality through prayer, faith and philanthropic support.
