    Jerry Hughes

    Founder & Director

    After Jerry was diagnosed with HIV in 2004, he decided to be a beacon of hope and transformation in the HIV/AIDS community. He made the House of Hope his mission to help children affected by HIV/AIDS.

    House of Hope

    When Hughes Foundation was officially recognized as a legal NGO (Nonprofit) in India, we selected (21) twenty one  children who have all been orphaned by AIDS, born with HIV and/or has a family member affected by HIV/AIDS who is unable to care for them. Seven of the children live full time at the orphanage and three of them live with a parent living with HIV/AIDS and join House of Hope for their education, food and programs. We are a family that cares for one another and will be sure, with your help, that each child has the bright opportunities in life, despite HIV/AIDS.

    Each child at House of Hope is provided with a safe place to live, life-saving medications and medical care, education, food and love - everything a home should have! They are also provided instruction and tutoring in key areas of their life interest. In fact, one of the children is blind – the result of medication taken prior to becoming part of the House of Hope family – we make sure he/she is able to grow and succeed just like any other child.

    Your donations make a big difference
