"Thanks to the Hope and Opportunity Initiative everything changed in my life for my children. My children have been given an opportunity to receive a Catholic Education which has a higher level of academic standards for my children. I see that their skills have improved in different areas not only in their academics but also in such areas as their manners, getting along with others, and kindness. The most important gift of Hope and Opportunity is that now they know how really important God is in our life. Our God has made this all possible! I am very thankful and so blessed for this program that has made it possible for my children to receive a Catholic Education!"- Mrs. Menesses, mother of Alexis '23 and Ivana '28
