What We Do
Making A Difference
Furthering our cause is the most important goal of our organization. We seek to support, empower, and provide high quality resources to our community in a safe and secure environment. Our success isn’t measured in terms of wealth or profit margin, but by the value we provide to those we serve.
The mission of Hope 4 U
The mission of Hope 4 U is to raise awareness of suicide by ending the stigma associated with mental health. To focus on prevention, awareness and intervention within our community so no person will suffer alone. Our Hope is to see zero suicides in Buffalo County and surrounding areas.
Suicide & Mental Health Awareness
Mental Health & Suicide Awareness walks have been a large part of our groups awareness focus. Walks have been held in Cochrane, Mondovi and Durand, WI.
We are looking forward to announcing the 2022 Awareness Walk location soon!
WHY WE WALK:
In remembrance of those we have lost, in honor of those who survived and alongside of those who are still struggling.
