There are several opportunities to donate renovations, materials, and funds to Marian Hope as described below.
Our current carpet has begun to show the wear and tear of heavy traffic and children. We hope to replace our carpet soon to make our therapy and waiting room areas more inviting and comfortable for all who use them.
If you know of anyone who could help us with any of these projects or if you would like to make a donation to contribute to these projects, please contact our Executive Director, Heather Ruoff. Thank you!

Marian Hope is very thankful to the Vescovi Family of Lee’s Summit, MO. They have generously donated the building we use for our preschool sessions, social skills groups, language groups, feeding groups, handwriting workshops, and office space. Our new facility provides us with the space to comfortably serve more families in our area. Thank you so much for your generous donation, Vescovi family!
We would like to thank Meyer Companies, Inc. of Lee’s Summit, MO. Meyer Companies has donated the equipment and labor to install a fence and playground equipment in the backyard. With the generosity of Meyer Companies, the children who attend the Marian Hope Center will be able to play safely outside while practicing play, social, and motor skills crucial to child development. We cannot thank Meyer Companies enough for giving the children this opportunity!
We are very appreciative of Kelly Construction Co. and all of their hard work. They have donated the materials and labor to give our Learning Center bathrooms a much-needed makeover!
A HUGE THANK YOU to Journey Church for sprucing up the Learning Center with new landscaping and windows!
