To all of the men and women who risked their lives for our freedom...we salute you.

  

The murals at Hope Manor II are one-of-a-kind artistic renderings created specifically for Hope Manor II by Christine Leone.

The framed art pieces hanging on the first floor of the main building at Hope Manor II were provided by  The National Veterans Art Museum. The pieces were made by Veter- ans and were inspired by their experiences while in the service.
