Why I Give

A family poses for a photograph in the mid-1950s. The photo is black and white, showing a man, a woman and two young girls.
Maggie Severino, SVP - Special Assets Officer
"I give to Homes of Hope, Inc. in loving memory of my oldest sister, Susan Murphy. Susie was born in 1951, and at 6 months, she contracted encephalitis, which left her severely brain damaged. Throughout her 19 year life, I saw my parents concern about what would happen to Susie if they were no longer there to care for her.
As an adult, I was able to contribute to the creation of Homes of Hope, which provides group homes for individuals with intellectual disabilities, giving them a life of dignity and purpose and providing their families with peace of mind. It has been a privilege to contribute to this organization for nearly 30 years!"
