The Sparkle of Hope Gala began more than 20 years ago and has raised millions of dollars in support of Community Hope's mission to help individuals overcome mental illness, addiction, homelessness, and poverty by providing housing and support services. Community Hope was founded in 1985 by families and mental health professionals seeking a safe haven in the community where young adults could continue their recovery from chronic mental illness. In 2004, Community Hope began residential recovery programs to help homeless veterans. Today, their Hope for Veterans® Programs is the leading non-profit organization saving veterans and veteran families from homelessness.
