Are you ready to help us change the world, one child at a time?
Hope Village is a unique multigenerational community for adoptive families of Arizona’s foster children and active seniors who provide love, support and experience to the families and children. Hope Village is an excellent environment for a person who loves to “get involved”.
Hope Village Arizona residents consist of adoptive children who seek permanency, adoptive parents who want to become “forever” parents and active older adults who will mentor and support these families to ensure their long-term success.
Hope Village Arizona is a housing partner of Save the Family Foundation of Arizona and will be located in the historic Escobedo Neighborhood at University and Center in Mesa, Arizona. Units are currently under construction; families and seniors will move in this fall, 2013.
Hope Happens Here.
