A Place Called Hope is a 501 c 3 non profit organization run entirely by volunteers along with donations of time, supplies and money from our supporters. If you would like to learn more about how you can help, please send us an email at hope4raptors@yahoo.com.One of our goals at A Place Called Hope, Inc. is to teach the public how to protect and respect wildlife, in particular Raptors. We are encouraged by peoples reactions to our programs and their own personal stories about the Birds of Prey they have encountered. We are thrilled to share these birds with so many people who truly care and want to learn more. Although, our biggest thrills, are experienced whenever we have the opportunity to release a wild bird back into its own environment after a brief stay at our facility! There is no comparison to giving a wild bird or animal the gift of “Freedom.”
