Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Six year-old Abbey Taylor's hope was that no child should ever suffer like she did as the result of an improperly maintained pool. In her name, the Foundation will work tirelessly toward a world with safer pools by providing education and advocating for comprehensive safety standards for all pools.
In June 2007, 6 year old Abigail Taylor was entrapped and disemboweled by the suction from an uncovered pool drain. Abbey fought bravely but sadly after 9 months of fighting, Abbey passed away. Early in her fight, Abbey said that her hope was that no child would ever suffer as she did. In her name, Abbey’s Hope Charitable Foundation champions for pool safety by educating, promoting and upholding safety standards for all pools.
Abbey's Hope is a nonprofit focused on educating parents and kids about the dangers in and around the pool. We do this by not only educating parent and kids, but also by working with pool industry professionals to create partnerships. In addition, we partner with other safety nonprofits and family foundations focused on pool safety.
We educate and advocate for safer pools through safety programs, marketing throughout the community and through legislation. We have multiple volunteer opportunities for all events and markets and we would love to have you be a part of Abbey's Hope. We look forward to meeting with you!
