About Our Mission

In November of 1997, Cathy Howe was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphona, a form of cancer. While on radiation therapy, Cathy again felt deeply compelled to reach out to children in her home town of Pittsburgh. Mother's Hope Foundation was born aiding sick and disadvantaged children in Pennsylvania and Bosnia-Hercegovina. The culmination of a dream came true in February 2001 when Mother's Hope Foundation held its Inaugural Night of Hope, a Rainbow and Roses Benefit Evening. Sponsored previously by Coldwell Banker Real Estate and now by Fifth Third Bank, this annual fundraising dinner is the cornerstone of the foundation's effort to fulfill its mission.


"A Journey of Faith" DVD

This DVD was shown at our Divine Mercy Celebration and captures the travels of Mother’s Pilgrims as they visit Medjugorje in the 25th year of the apparitions of Our Lady. Travel with Mother’s Pilgrims experienced the joy, the prayer, and most of all the peace that is felt by everyone who comes to this place.
