Marian Hope, a faith-based organization, strives to successfully light the fire of learning by integrating all children into our communities and by bolstering hope for each child despite any learning, behavioral, or health challenges they may endure.

Marian Hope provides the tools in-house and in-hand to each child, to help the “whole” child fulfill his God-give purpose. Marian Hope is a non-profit (501-c3) organization. It was founded in 2007 by licensed speech-language pathologist, Angie Knight, M.A., CCC-SLP, and Karen Embry, parent of a child with special needs.

Four programs are offered that can provide the light of success for each child:
