My name is Stephanie, I'm a nurse that grew up and works in the Yakima Valley.  One of my roles as a nurse is to improve access to care to rural communities and marginalized groups.  I've been a part of a small group of friends and health care workers whom are dedicated to improving lives of those less fortunate. In addition to assisting locally, we also travel to one of the poorest neighborhoods in Guatemala where we support The School of Hope.

We are making our annual trip to Jocotenango, Guatemala in October 2019.  We support a program that improves the lives of hundreds of impoverished children. We cover our own travel and all associated expenses. We are asking you to help us raise funds for this school so that the children can obtain medical care at local clinics and hospitals. All funds raised go directly towards the cost of medical care for these amazing kids.

Our 2018 fundraiser raised almost $9000 which was the highest amount raised since starting our fundraisers in 2014! The projected expenses for  medical care (including hospitalization, consults, labs, x-rays, scans, medicines, transportation, etc) continue to climb year after year. 

We support children and their future. People (specifically children) are the best investment. In order to improve a population you need empowerment and independence. The proven form has been education. These children face countless socioeconomic and psychological barriers. A holistic approach is required to improve long term outcomes. What these children face on a near daily basis makes all of our life obstacles seem petty. The staff and volunteers provide long term commitment. They genuinely care and love the community in which they are empowering. They sacrifice so much for others. This is a long term and sustainable commitment. They aren't going anywhere unless these socioeconomic issues are resolved.

If you are able, please help us and help spread the word. Any donation is greatly appreciated. These children are combating extreme poverty and many face inhuman conditions. This school provides a safe haven where they can break the cycle of poverty. All donations go directly to medical cost and does not cover any administration fees. We have never needed as much support as we are asking for this year. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Please consider a donation by clicking the provided button. 

Please contact me direclty with any questions or concerns. 

Thanks for your continued support!
