the inspiration for hihopes/hopegivers kids came to tony in follow-up to attending a presentation on foster children in ventura county. through devoted prayer, he was guided to develop a program that would help at-risk foster youth who were aging out of the system. after one meeting with key county personnel and other local non-profits, the hope2work program was launched. it is through his continued inspired vision that hihopes kids is making a difference by engaging local communities, businesses and individuals to make a difference in the lives of foster and at-risk kids.
