About the Campaign

Mario’s Story
In Mario’s Words

It is because of you I had a place to call “home.” Place of Hope is where I came to live at seven years old. It is at Place of Hope that I realized what a “father figure” truly is. I had cottage parents that loved me unconditionally and pushed me to pursue my dreams.

I am now proud to say that I am serving in the U.S. Army and hope to pursue a career as a police officer upon retiring. I do not know where I would be if it were not for Place of Hope.

My story is just one of the many that are impacted every day by your generosity. I ask that you consider donating today to provide hope for every child so that they are given every opportunity to pursue their dreams and reach their full potential. Will you help more kids like me today?

Every gift that you give will be matched (on a dollar-for-dollar basis) by our One Life Matching Fund Sponsors.


If you would like to take a tour of our Paxson Campus, where Mario and many other foster children have and do call “home,” contact Amyleigh at 561-775-7195 or
