In addition to the supplies listed on the The Classroom page, The Hope Center needs supplies to be used by the school in general to ensure and enhance the learning experience. Be sure to check the Hope Center Wishlist!

Below is a compiled list of items from staff, therapists and parents that The Hope Center feels will be beneficial to the educational environment and outcome of the students. The funds that will be allotted to this wish list will come directly from donations and/or fundraising.
