Hopecam kicked off the New Year with a gift of $10,000 from Capitol Seniors Housing (CSH), a developer and owner of more than 45 seniors housing communities across the United States.
In 2014, Hopecam grew from partnering with 6 hospitals to 50 located in 37 states to help children with cancer. Hopecam works to overcome the children’s isolation, one of the first side effects of their treatment. They give the kids tablet computers, provide Internet access if the family is not connected, then work with the child’s school to persuade them to establish a regular Skype connection so the child can see and be supported by friends and classmates. Hopecam is the only charity in the United States providing this much needed program to children in treatment for cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
In 2014, Hopecam was a Northern Virginia Technology Council Award Finalist for "Most Innovative Use of Technology."
CSH Managing Partner S. Scott Stewart sits on Hopecam’s Board of Directors.
