Yard maintenance & outdoor services for seniors: Introducing HOPE

Yard maintenance & outdoor services for seniors: Introducing HOPE

Honoring Our Precious Elders, Inc. (H.O.P.E.) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2018 by Hen Truong in honor of his parents, who instilled in him the values of treating elders with respect and reciprocating to them the care they gave to generations before. As a teen, Hen had a profound experience when his father took him and his brother to the homes of neighborhood elders to offer free assistance with yard work and outdoor home maintenance. The relationships built from those interactions and the gratitude shown by the elders were more valuable than money; they were priceless, and they helped shape Hen’s vision for H.O.P.E.

Whereas other agencies exist to provide services such as housing, food, and home health care to elders, H.O.P.E. recognizes that elders may also suffer from social isolation. Our unique mission is to build and nurture relationships while also providing much-needed yard and outdoor services.

Aging in place helps maintain independence, dignity, and overall health and quality of life for elders, but there are many older adults who struggle to maintain their homes due to financial limitations, limited mobility, or limited support. H.O.P.E. is here to embrace these older adults as extended family, offering regularly scheduled yard maintenance and outdoor services at no charge.

  • Raking: We rake leaves from your lawn in the fall and make sure that your walkways are clear for safety.
  • Mowing: We mow lawns, edge, remove limbs and debris from lawn areas, and blow or sweep grass clippings from curbs, walks, driveways, and patios.
  • Pruning: We prune your shrubs, bushes, and small trees to manage new growth so that views from windows are not obscured and that walkways are not blocked.

H.O.P.E. volunteers from across generations work together to help our senior neighbors age in place, strengthening community bonds and empowering independence in our elders.

H.O.P.E. is a volunteer-driven, grassroots, nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
