Hope is what we live for.

Welcome to Hank’s Hope

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to provide resources and support to families in the greater Delaware area who have been affected by pregnancy loss and infant loss. We were founded in 2013 in memory of Henry “Hank” Shaffer Mathay, stillborn in 2012. We were incorporated in June 2015.

A Special Message

To our dear friends, family members, supporters, and most importantly to our community,

It is with bittersweet hearts that we announce the closing of Hank’s Hope Inc. Throughout the last six years we’ve done many things that we will always be proud of. Our biggest achievement has been YOU, and honoring the babies lost too soon. We are working with other organizations to help them continue our mission, including the Wave of Light. Save the date for next year!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to become part of your lives. It has been an honor to be part of your grief, laughter, and love. Hope is what we live for, and we will continue to do so individually and encourage you to do the same.

With love and hope,
Hank’s Hope Inc.

If you are in the Delaware area and are in need of support, please reach out to our friends at Julia’s Light Foundation.
