Annual Retreats and Meet Ups


Hope for HIE encourages families to connect offline. To foster these connections, we host annual regional meet up retreats and biannual conference retreats in the US. Many of our families have planned family meet ups as well. 

We also offer assistance to help start retreats all over the globe, and use the resources of our foundation to ensure more families can connect.
