ABOUT US

ECHOES OF HOPE strives to awaken the spirit of hope in the lives of children, youth, and young adults in need by alleviating barriers and helping them reach their full potential. 

Founded in 2007 by Stacia and Luc Robitaille, the nonprofit has helped thousands of at-risk and emancipated foster youth succeed by providing the resources, love, and support they so richly deserve.

Values Statement:

  • We proclaim a vision and message of hope.

  • We believe in the ultimate worth and dignity of each individual.

  • We share unconditional love and develop relationships that change lives.

  • We value presenting opportunities to those who would otherwise have none.

  • We pursue excellence in our leading and serving.

  • We are an organization of integrity.

Our Impact

Less than 3% of youth aging out of the foster care system in California alone will graduate from college. We're dedicated to changing that statistic, one life at a time.

 
 
 

"Echoes of Hope is love, acceptance, and family! We’re all from different backgrounds, and have been through different hardships, but we strive to be a light of love to all lives that we cross paths with.”

— Caitlyn Reynolds


"Echoes of Hope has inspired and helped me transform my lifestyle by being more open, honest, and present. Echoes of Hope is my second family and taught me so many skills and lessons. I appreciate the brave space that was created for us to be ourselves."

— Paradyse Oakley


"Echoes of Hope is exceptional because it is driven by the principles that everyone deserves dignity, respect, and love.

— Jesse Aguilar
