Mobile Hope, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, supports the needs of Loudoun County children and young adults who are precariously housed, homeless and at risk. We create ways for this fragile and often unacknowledged population to have access to daily essentials and ongoing support. Mobile Hope serves those 24 years of age or younger who live in Loudoun County (with proof of Loudoun County residency).
Our services include: food, clothing, hygiene products, school supplies, medical care and service referrals, books, toys, and more — depending on the situation and the availability of aid. We rely solely on the support of donors and sponsors to fund our programs and to help us carry out our mission. We work in partnership with Loudoun County Public Schools, the faith communities, the police department and first responders, government officials, healthcare providers, community leaders, stakeholders and other safety net providers.
Mobile Hope was created in 2011 as an adjunct of the Mobile Health program operated by Inova Loudoun Hospital, under the leadership and direction of our CEO and founder, Donna Fortier, who was then Director of Community Affairs and Mobile Health Services.
While running the Mobile Health program, Donna became acutely aware of the growing problem of homeless and at risk young people with needs substantially exceeding healthcare. It became apparent that a much broader array of services would be required to address the needs of these homeless and precariously housed children and young adults. She learned there was a significant void and therefore an unmet need offered to this overlooked population. After years of providing limited services under the umbrella of Inova Loudoun Hospital, Mobile Hope broke away to become its own 501(c)(3) in September 2014, to focus solely on this overlooked population.
