    The Center for Hope, Inc. is a not for profit organization with the mission of providing resources to educate, assist and support families and friends to cope with the ambiguous disappearance of a loved one.

    The primary goals of HOPE are to design and construct the "National Remorial for Missing Persons" at an appropriate location within New York State's Capital District, and to promote and provide support, education and healing for survivors by sponsoring professionally run seminars including an annual ceremony on Missing Person's Day.
