The HOPE Fund
The HOPE Fund was founded in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans. Thousands of lives were affected by the disaster, including over 290 employees of Kindred Hospital New Orleans.
Those of us on the outside looking in knew that we had the power to help our Kindred teammates, and out of that desire The HOPE Fund was born. One of the worst natural disasters of the last 100 years became an occasion to lend assistance to those in need, and our employees responded with an unprecedented wave of generosity.
Today, The HOPE Fund doesn’t just exist – it thrives, thanks to the conscious decision of our employees to help each other through regular contributions.

After completing a worksheet, please share the worksheet and required documentation with your facility leader who can submit the request on your behalf.
