In 2014 Hope for Michael hosted several events; all these events were successful and our organization was able to once again provide assistance to families in need.
Our Annual Kids Safety Day was once again a great success bringing children with Special Needs and the Community together to share a day of fun. This event was held at the Ossining Community Center which was once again generously donated by Henry Atterbury. Special Thanks to Lt. Dan Slater of the Ossining Police Department for helping us organize a great day for all in attendance.
