Hope Rocks’ Mission
Creating opportunities which stimulate, inspire and develop a responsibility to empower each other with hope through offerings and activities which demonstrate the goodness and interconnectedness of people. Creating experiences which provide those who struggle with issues of mental and social uncertainty a connection where previously little or no connection was perceived.
Creating atmospheres accepting of all whereby individuals, families and organizations feel they are part of a unique and special experience. Creating experiences filled with activity, art, music and offerings which bring out the goodness of one another and reestablish a feeling of community.
