The Hope Society is a group of individuals who have committed to supporting the youth SAY serves for five years. Often, the youth SAY serves need more than a single service or visit to our offices. They come from years of trauma and abuse, homelessness and fear. SAY pledges to be there for these youth for their entire lives and the Hope Society pays for services and operations so we can live up to our promise. Often, SAY is the only safe place these kids have. Hope Society members pledge to stand by SAY’s youth, telling them that they are important for the long run. Members of the Hope Society pledge a minimum of $1,000 for five years to support SAY’s operations.
``The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.`` • Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams
