This year, The Jeff Miller Award will be presented to Sigmon Taylor Photography. Sigmon Taylor Photography has generously provided support for the organization through many professional photo shoots for our Annual Fund Campaign and other projects. These contributions to Hope House Foundation have impacted programs and services and directly benefit the people who receive services.
The 2019 Community Award will be presented to Brooks Johnson & Germaine Clair.
The Stockley Gardens Arts Festival is an integral part of Hope House and they are long-time Friends of Stockley supporters. We are so thankful for their generosity over the years.
Hope House Foundation staff members are also recognized for their years of service. “We have a very dedicated, award-winning and loyal staff,” said Executive Director Lynne Seagle. “We reward longevity and service in an industry that typically does not receive a lot of recognition. We pride ourselves on the superior service these individuals provide to the people who receive service from us.”
All of the honorees are recognized for their work to support not only Hope House Foundation, but also efforts to remain a model for an inclusive community.
Since 1964, Hope House Foundation has worked on the frontlines of the battle for independence, community inclusion and true citizenship for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The organization provides individualized support for adults in their own homes or apartments. Currently, it serves more than 120 people in Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Virginia Beach.
Hope House is known as an innovator and leader in the field, and in 2008, it received the American Association for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities national award for full community inclusion. In 2012, it was named ANCOR Foundation’s Service Provider of the Year, and two of Hope House Foundation’s staff members have been national award recipients for direct service professionals.
