What We Do

Eli’s Hope supports and funds special needs planning for families with limited financial means. 


Eli’s Hope is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides funding to families for special needs planning services. Eli’s Hope helps families obtain legal documents, funding protections, services, and resources that they are otherwise not able to obtain due to the financial challenges they face.


Eli’s Hope uses a holistic approach in understanding the needs of the family and each individual member as they work to support the family in every way possible.  


Families must complete an application for consideration. To find out more or to apply, please contact us.
