Hope Grows! Expansion Updates and Needs

GIVING TUESDAY CAMPAIGN:   It's our goal to raise $15,000 to specifically go towards the heating, A/C and electrical work for the expansion on Giving Tuesday!  Click on the button below or give through Venmo:  @HLC-Perkasie.  Thank you in advance for your generousity!

We are in the process of expanding into just over 700 square feet of space for HLC!  We are currently serving 19 students and have quickly outgrown our current space.  The new space will be multifunctional allowing for us to use it for the students, parent workshops, social gatherings and fundraising events.  We will be gathering donations for materials, labor and furnishings.  To date we have received funding assistance from our partnership with Good Stuff Thrift for architectural, lawyer and zoning fees and the start of the project.  Passerini Construction is offsetting costs for the needed excavation work outside the space.  Your generous donations will help us complete the project!  We are also seeking businesses for material donations or matching gift opportunities as we are hoping to raise $25,000 by the end of 2022.  Click on the donate button below to be part of this incredible opportunity as we continue to serve young adults on the autism spectrum who are college and career bound!

Ways to Support Hope Learning Center

Your donations assist us in offering programs and social opportunities to our students as we help them develop the needed community, skills and connections for life. Here are some of the ways to get involved:


Donations are accepted for HOPE Scholarship Fund which directly supports the students with tuition assistance, or to the Hope General Fund which could be used for capital improvements, teaching materials, activities etc.

Currently our needs are met for the Scholarship and General Fund!  Your donations towards the Hope Grows Campaign are appreciated!


2. Donate TIME

Volunteers are essential in running Hope Learning Center. Whether you can teach a class, facilitate a social      group, run an activity or accompany our students on a social outing, we welcome your help.   All volunteers will need to complete a simple application, provide references and obtain the needed clearances before
