About Us

Erick George Brown 1996-2008 – To the doctors, he was their miracle child……….Born with six different heart defects and no spleen, he beat all odds.  At 18 days old, exciting news showed a spleen had developed.  Now with multiple surgeries ahead of us, anxiety was high.  At six weeks old surgery was attempted, but unsuccessful.  It was bittersweet, no more surgeries, because the doctors determined that the only surgery for Erick would be a heart and lung transplant.

Although he was a child with heart issues, clearly his heart was in the right place–early on, Erick showed he had a heart full of love.  Winning awards for Christian character, he took a special interest in tutoring and feeding hungry children.  His desire to serve and respect others is contagious, even now.  In honor of his life, this foundation has been established in his memory.

ERICK’s HOPE VERSE: Proverbs 20:11 – Even a child is known by his actions, whether his conduct is pure and right.

Mission Statement:

Erick’s Hope exists to serve children in need of love and security by providing spiritual, emotional, physical and educational support through a variety of programs and   services.

To inspire, support and be good stewards of the time and talents of the growing number of volunteers dedicated to our vision.

To be respectful of the time and talents we are offered  and good stewards of the resources we are given.
