A Ray of Hope’s Mission:
To provide support, resources and the Hope of Christ to Special Needs Families.
We currently offer 4 Support Groups for moms to join and are looking to expand to add support for the whole family (Parents, Siblings, Dads and Marriage).
Please see our Meetings page
We want to be able to offer opportunities for Mom/Dad/Couples to be refreshed and rested.
We want to incorporate more meetup opportunities for our families to get together.
Please visit our Events page
We are taking the model of our current support groups out to other churches and communities so they can be supporting to the special needs families in their church and communities.
Please visit our Resources page
We will consult, educate and train churches on the need for special needs ministries.

Testimonials from some of our members:
“…A Ray of Hope has definitely been that for me. A Ray of Hope and encouragement on this journey of raising our child with special needs. Knowing it is a safe place to go and share, listen and to learn from others as we all share similar struggles. I’m excited to see what God has in store for A Ray of Hope in touching families around us. Thank You for your hard work and dedication to our families.” - Pauline T., Bradenton, FL.
“A Ray of Hope has been such a huge blessing for me! As a single mom, only parent and 24/7 caregiver I am thankful to have found online support as there have been days we couldn’t even leave our home due to my daughter’s uncontrolled seizures. I am blessed to be a part of something so much bigger than just a special needs mom. I have come to know hope again…from the hope that I get from all of the other warrior moms in the group. I know that we all pray, and care about one another and that makes this journey so much easier because I no longer feel so alone and lost. Thank You for allowing me to be a part of something so special! Also, you have given me courage to start a special needs parent support group at my home church. So very thankful!” - Karen S.
