Words from our founder:
Mrs. Virginia Maitland Sachs had a passion for New York City and for all who lived there. During her lifetime, she worked very hard to improve the lives of needy New Yorkers by initiating and participating in many charitable activities. As a close family friend of Virginia Maitland Sachs, I have spent many years following her example.
Though we worked separately, our work has always been one in spirit. As Mrs. Virginia Maitland Sachs did, I have a passion for helping the under privileged and the under served. This passion led me to spend many weekends personally cooking meals, making deliveries and collecting donations for those in need.
Charitable work can be very difficult, and I realized that my efforts could have more impact if I reached out to others for help. In order to do so, and to honor the lifetime of hard work of Mrs. Virginia Maitland Sachs, I took the proverbial leap of faith and founded a non-profit charitable organization, "Virginia’s House of Hope."
I now head up a staff of dedicated volunteers that truly serve the needs of many. For inspiration, I remember the selfless efforts of Mrs. Virginia Maitland Sachs, and all her accomplishments made during her years of service in New York City. My only hope for this organization is that it lives up to the values that she demonstrated throughout her life. If we can accomplish that, then we have truly succeeded!
Together we can continue Mrs. Virginia Maitland Sachs’s dream, and fulfill the hopes of those who need it most.
Thank you very much for your continued support!
