“Our mission is to help provide grief counseling and bereavement support services to children and teens who have experienced the loss of a parent or a loved one, regardless of the circumstances of the death”.

A Little HOPE, Inc. is a ground breaking not for profit, publicly supported charitable foundation founded in early 2002, as a personal response to the World Trade Center tragedy by Whitney and Evan Michaels. As they attended numerous memorial services, they witnessed many bereaved children now having to face a new reality – life without their mother or father – and wanted to find a way to offer them hope for the future. Richard H. Schimel, President and a founding board member recalls "We were trying to think what we could do and my thought was, how do you help the children because they're really the ones left behind".
