Hope 4 MVC Kids is a registered charity and non-profit society with a mission of providing support to families of children in medical need within Mountain View County.
Twelve residents comprise the board, founded by Lisa Nicholson. The idea was born out of a fundraising campaign for her daughter. Says Lisa, “My family and I were overwhelmed by the kindness, compassion and generosity we found in our community.”
Two children in Lisa’s family have special needs, so she understands the implications and burdens required for hospitalization and the need for adaptive equipment. “We not only wanted to pay it back,” explains Lisa, “but also, pay it forward.”
