"I'm so grateful to them for helping me stay alive and well. Thank you Hope Xchange and those who donate for saving my life!"
"Hi there, my name is Sara and I'm 24 years old. At 16, I was diagnosed with bipolar, ADD, and anxiety and made many unhealthy choices. I reached out to Hope Xchange and they have helped tremendously. They helped me get away from a physically abusive ex-boyfriend and admitted to an inpatient program. When discharged to an outpatient program, they got me placed into a domestic violence shelter, got me a link card, paid for UBER rides to my treatment, are helping me get SSDI, and even getting me clothes and food! Hope Xchange has definitely given me both hope and help to get back on my feet!"
