Our mission is to financially assist single parents who have kids with special and medical needs.

Bella’s House of Hope inspires hope and provides a safe haven and community service support for single parents with children who have long-term intellectual, developmental, and medical disabilities.
The Founder and her Inspiration
Nadia was a couture designer who returned to San Diego after traveling the world as a model. Shortly after her return she married and was expecting her first baby. In the delivery room, her eager anticipation turned to fear. Bella was born non-responsive with a life threatening diagnosis. While dealing with the emotions, grief, and stress of a new norm, she decided in that moment she would dedicate her life to care for sweet Bella. The challenges in her marriage increased which led her to becoming a single mom.
The Hard Part
I got this, I don’t got this… Let’s be honest, parenting is hard under best of circumstances. If you’re single and raising a child that has special needs — whether they be medical, cognitive, neurological, behavior, sensory, or physical — the normal stress of parenting is compounded by an onslaught of additional stress, doubt, and questions. In this process, I decided to be a good mom instead of a perfect one.
Making meaning out of a disability and strength was challenging but when integrated with a positive outlook, my purpose was discovered. Having Bella as my daughter brought new meaning to life. I found opportunity, hope, compassion and gratitude for all parents out there of special needs kids. I realized ‘I am not alone’. With all the understanding, knowledge, and confidence I was gaining, I decided to start a nonprofit organization. It is designed to distribute direct financial assistance while minimizing frustration, anger, and trauma. Trimming the F.A.T. as I like to call it. We provide financial support with rent, transportation, food, medical supplies, furniture, family and group therapy. Of course the process of building a positive family takes time, you know about Rome right… I know this much, with your support, together we can have a positive outcome on these amazing families.
