Gabe’s Story

Gabriel’s Foundation of HOPE has been a dream for our family for a long time.

In 1990, Gabriel was born with severe congenital birth defects. (Pseudo-Thalidomide Tetra-Phocomelia). Our future looked uncertain.

… But there is hope!

For over twenty years, people have come along side us providing encouragement as we journeyed into unfamiliar territory. The giving hearts of many people enabled us to buy Gabe’s first wheelchair when he was two years old. The fund set up for him also helped us purchase a vehicle to transport his electric wheels.

… Thanks to amazing gifts from:

  • Friends
  • Family
  • Businesses who sponsor assemblies
  • Strangers

We were blessed in ways we can’t begin to describe. Now we are going to pay it forward by blessing other families who deal with the challenges of living with a disability. Our organization was approved by the Internal Revenue Service in November 2007 as a 501(c)3 charity. We are now ready to help the families who come to us for assistance.

… What does HOPE mean today?

  • Help
  • Overcome
  • Persevere
  • Encourage
