The word “hope” conveys the single greatest benefit offered to all who come here for care.   A tree has long been a part of our organization’s imagery as a symbol of strength, shelter, endurance and vibrant life, as well as the sheltering comfort provided there.  Thus, our name HopeTree symbolizes the mission that has remained the same throughout our history: to provide quality Christian care to people in need.
