In 1999, the Hope Foundation for Retarded Children (now The Foundation for Hope Village) conducted a major Capital Campaign for Facilities Construction: the first to occur since the initial construction of Hope Village was completed in the mid 1980’s.

With four houses and more than 50 residents in 1999, much of Hope Village’s physical facilities were either outdated or inadequate. Between 1999 and 2001, through the efforts of the Board of Directors and The Sterling Group, professional fundraisers retained by the Foundation, Hope Village obtained full funding for the construction of three additional buildings and a walking track.
Hope Village Developmental Center, Friendswood, Texas

A 14,000 square-foot Developmental Center was built with major grants from The Fondren Foundation, The Brown Foundation, Houston Endowment, Inc. and the William Stamps Farish Fund. This building allowed Hope Village’s Work and Respite Care Programs to grow exponentially by providing a means and the space for increasing the number of people Hope Village could serve by including them in these programs. It also made possible the opening of the Village Cafe, a small restaurant open to the public which employs some of Hope Village’s residents and an expanded ceramics program which employs residents and day program participants.

Hope Village Administration Office named for The James Chao Family
A beautiful, new 1,200 square-foot Administration Building was completely funded and built through a generous donation from the James Chao Family.
Home # 5, a much-needed 5,000 square foot advanced care facility for aging residents and residents with special medical needs and a ¾ mile walking track which provides a means for exercising and socializing as well as a walkway system linking all of the existing and new structures together were made possible through a gift from the Betty Jo Coady Estate.

A second Capital Campaign was started in 2012 to construct a Community and Education Building which will allow Hope Village to expand its Day Program and provide the space we need for our community events and fundraisers. For more information or to make a donation, please visit our Capital Campaign page.

Major grants and gifts have made so many things possible for Hope Village. Continued investment in the master-plan will optimize Hope Village’s facilities as a regional resource for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families, accommodating a full roster of programs for permanent residents and respite care and day program participants.
