Walkway of Hope

The Walkway of Hope represents the legacy of many of the individuals who have been a part of the Dawn of Hope from its humble beginnings to the multi-faceted program offerings of today. The Walkway of Hope is a lasting symbol for enriching the lives of East Tennesseans with developmental disabilities and their families and a unique way to memorialize or honor a loved one.

The campaign met its goal in August of 2004 and the Foundation continues to raise money to help cover the increasing costs of providing services.
