"Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but giving more," - H Jackson Brown Jr.

When you give to Hope Loves Company - with a donation, with an hour of service, with a share on social media, or in any capacity - you are giving to the ALS community, to children and young adults who have or have had a loved one battling ALS. We are so grateful for your committment to making a difference in the lives of our HLC families.

Thank you to the Les Turner ALS Foundation for helping us to bring Camp HLC to Chicagoland families - we are so grateful for the opportunity to meet new families and work with incredible organizations like the Les Turner Foundation.

Our campers enjoyed scrapbooking, climbing the giant tower and ropes course, a talent show, boating, and more!

Thank you to everyone who joined us at Camp HLC Chicago. We are so fortunate to have so many wonderful people to celebrate at each Camp HLC!
