Mission Statement: To enhance and improve the quality of life for youth living in low-income communities and children with sickle cell anemia.
Hope for Us Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that operates in the Bronx, NY. Hope for US Inc. is dedicated to assisting youth with sickle cell anemia and children living in low-income communities. It was founded in July of 2013 by Kenneth Acquah. Hope for Us Inc. targets youth in an effort to improve their living conditions. Children are our future and supplying them with a better life is the ultimate goal. Sickle Cell Anemia is an inherited disease that affects the person’s blood cells. This disease is a part of many families, including Acquah’s, and has no known cure. Hope for Us Inc.’s goal is to provide assistance to those affected by sickle cell disease by providing the financial means for them to pursue their interests in recreational activities such as the arts and music. Part of Hope for Us Inc.’s vision is to be an advocate for those individuals affected by Sickle Cell Anemia, as well as, to provide a means for the public at large to become knowledgeable about the disease. Hope for Us Inc. plans to carry out its vision by means of fundraising events and through hands-on interaction with the community. Hope for Us Inc. accepts any kind of donation and also plans on holding clothing and toy drives to provide assistance for those living in low-income communities throughout the Bronx. We, as a community, should be knowledgeable and aware of the difficulties that people with Sickle Cell Anemia and those living in low-income communities face every day.
