 Hope Town Hall

Bringing Hope to Our Communities

MATFORCE, Kids at Hope, and Arizona State University’s Center for the Advanced Study and Practice of Hope have teamed up to bring HOPE to our communities.


For the past three decades science has examined the dynamics of HOPE to better understand its elements and why some people seem to have a lot of hope; others a little; and why so many lack hope particularly when we know for a scientific fact that people with hope do better in life that those without it.

The topic of Hope is indeed a subject that can change the trajectory of people’s lives and provide an optimistic and empowering view of their communities. Offering Hope as a topic for a Town Hall Meeting is important to the well being of all. This Town Hall will include a presentation about the science and culture that creates Hope along with a discussion by participants who will share how hope can be used as a strategy not just a loose set of emotions.

Participants will be encouraged to participate in a robust question and answer segment as well.

Grandparent Support Group
Rich Young has facilitated numerous support groups in his thirty years of work in the Human Services field. He and his wife are raising their six-year-old granddaughter, whom they have cared for since she was five months old. Following a three-and-a-half-year journey dealing with DCS, the courts and the biological parents, they adopted Sebellah in May of 2018. Their goal is to use their own journey to help other grandparents raising their grandchildren.

This free, virtual support group is a safe place to share experiences, connect with other grandparents raising grandchildren and find helpful resources for your lifechanging endeavor.

When: Virtual groups meet every 2nd Tuesday. The next meeting is March 9, 2021 from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm using Zoom.
