Many therapies and interventions have little or no insurance coverage, resulting in significant financial strain for families. Family Hope Foundation’s Scholarship Program helps ease some of the financial burden, allowing children to continue receiving the therapy they need to help them reach their full potential.

About Our Therapy Scholarship Program

Our scholarship program provides financial assistance to families for therapies that have little or no insurance coverage. We have two scholarship cycles, one in the spring and one in the fall, in which families can apply for scholarships up to $1,000. Families may apply during one or both of our scholarship cycles.

  • Applicant must live in West Michigan.
