The mission of Homie’s Hope is to enrich the lives and futures of the many families and children affected by Mitochondrial Disease by offering financial assistance, granting wishes to patients, offering college scholarship opportunities, and energizing research and science, through donations to the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation, to find a cure for this disease.
The inspiration behind Homie’s Hope is Abigail Goerges, the niece of Kim Mullins (CEO/Founder of Homie’s Hope). When Abi was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease at 18 months, the doctors did not expect her to celebrate her ninth birthday, but Abi is approaching her 19th birthday and will be graduating High School. Abi has always shared a special bond with her aunt, Kim Mullins. One day, when Abi was approximately five years old, Kim said, “What’s up little homie?” to which Abi replied, “What’s up, Big Homie?” From that day forward, Abi referred to Kim as “Aunt Homie.” Hence the name, Homie’s Hope.
