Living My Best Life

What is HOPE?

HOPE, Delaware’s Youth Advisory Council, is made up of current and former foster care youth. HOPE, which stands for Helping Our Peers Evolve, provides a safe and respectful forum for youth to share ideas, opinions, concerns and develop leadership skills by planning and facilitating activities that enhance the foster care system, independent living program and community.
