Welcome to HopeForYou Foundation
Making a difference one family at a time
HopeForYou Inc. operated as a daycare for over 13 year and have been supporting and counselling young mothers since 2005. Although we have closed our daycare our love for children and young mothers remains. Therefore, we are now focusing pn empowering youth, young mothers and children through workshops, speaking engagements, and by providing them with practical support. Please let us know how we may be able to help making a difference in your family.
In my journey as a daycare owner and as a mother it comes very natural to put our needs last. However, one day I almost fell at the daycare while working alone because I didn’t eat and i got a dizzy. That experience in 2009 was one of my wake up call to selfcare. We are responsible for our physical and mental health. We are responsible for our live. Now I teach parents especially single moms how to put themselves first and parent without guilt. I empower women to know and see their worth, become bold, confident and to love themselves. I want women to know that you MATTER, you are WORTH IT, and you GOT WHAT IT TAKES. Maya Angelou says, “If you are always trying to be normal you would never know how amazing you are.” So, I help women to challenge themselves, and maximize their awesomeness. In addition, I help women to know that their determination to overcome circumstances tells their children that they should never let anyone or anything make them quit and having their best life (page 25 of my book Cherish Your Mistakes).
Sometimes we may think we are safer being on our journey alone. However, Maya Angelou says, “if you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.” There is such power in women coming together and seeing the value of our uniqueness and the strength we get when surrounded with genuine love and friendship.
The first step in getting started is to contact me and let’s talk about building accountability and succeeding together.
Looking forward to speaking with you!
Join our mission to support children and youth in Canada and Jamaica with tools and supplies to empower them in building courage, confidence and self-discipline. To fulfill their full potential and create a successful future.
Phiona, you have no idea how lucky we are to have found someone as loving and caring as you. You love my children as your own; you take the time to teach them not only the abc’s of life, but also how to be part of a family.
I just want you to know how much we appreciate all that you do for Easton, he is especially polite and we are always proud of him when we take him to play with other children, he almost always shares! We know that he has become the little gentleman that he is, under your consistent and firm care.
Phiona – I don’t know what our family would do without you. I have never had to worry knowing that Josh is with you. Thank you for all you do, words just can’t express how happy we are to have found you.
Well done, Phiona!! I think the new website is modern, informative, bright and full of information and love — just like you!!! I always admire your drive to keep growing and improving and it is something that I am trying to weave into my everyday life. I am reminded, once again, of how lucky we are to receive the life changing benefits of being a HFY family!
