January 9, 2000 – December 20, 2017
My brother and I had our sons a month apart and the boys were like brothers. Hunter liked and excelled at most sports he played such as football, soccer, and basketball. The Miami Heat and Miami Dolphins were his favorite hometown teams. He liked to play video games with his cousin Brian and his dad, Ben. Hunter was a good soul and would have helped anyone who needed it. Even though he struggled, he was there for anyone. He was a sweet boy who just wanted to find his place in the world and he gave up too quickly. He was loved by so many people. Hunter enjoyed all varieties of music and was versatile in his musical knowledge. Hunter always had people laughing with his great sense of humor. There was never a dull moment when he was around. The loss of Hunter was devastating to my family and we struggled to understand why he didn’t reach out. After a couple years of research, I learned that those struggling do not reach out to those closest to them because they do not want to burden their loved ones. Therefore, I created Hunter’s House of Hope to be a safe place for those in Hunter’s position. A place to come that is free from rejection or fear that they will burden friends and family. Our hope is that no one will feel alone and end up ending their lives so that no one else’s family will have to endure what we have. I also want Hunter to live on forever and I know if he was here, and had survived, he would have been doing this charity with us. Because that’s who he was. ~ Auntie
Hunter’s House of Hope
Ensuring you get the help you need with a helping hand along the way!
Hunters House of Hope is a nonprofit organization that provides services for those suffering from depression and other mental health issues in a warm, loving environment. We educate, empower, and heal each individual we work with by creating a personalized treatment plan and connecting them to community resources. We aim to be a beacon of hope to those experiencing some of their darkest moments. Hunters House of Hope is a safe place, free from the fear of rejections and loneliness. Our volunteers, called Guardian Angels, work with each individual to assess their needs and ensure they are met. We link those in our program to our local web of resources for counseling, housing, clothing, food, and rehabilitation.
We create a safe environment, void of rejection, and fear from seeking help.
