Five women.

All have many roles: Daughters. Sisters. Wives. Mothers. Professionals.

All have one goal: To give back, specifically to children in need, helping them to achieve their fullest potential despite their often tragic circumstances.

These children may have been abused, neglected or abandoned.

Each of these women have overcome their own life challenges and have reached a level of success that allows them to give back.               

For the past five years, the Committee for Hope has held a gala to benefit an organization assisting at-risk children. The 2015 gala, "Fostering Hope: A Gala for Every Child" will raise funds for Every Child, a ministry of The Chapel. Every Child provides a variety of support services for foster care parents throughout Western New York, including certification and adoption assistance.  The Committee also assists Children's Services in Niagara County.
