My name is Sofia Carpenter, I am outgoing, high spirited, enjoy adventure to seize the moment kind of person! I am an ambitious woman of God. My faith is what keeps me going, I have dreamed, lived and loved in my life. I seek opportunities like driving my own handicap accessible van.
My old van died 3 and half years ago, but the cost is high. Thanks to Help Hope Live, I can fundraise while I keep my medical insurance.

Hi there,

I am asking for your help to raise $11,867 more so that I can drive my own handicapped accessible van. I graduate in the spring of 2022. My last semester at Fresno Pacific University, where I will graduate with my bachelor degree in social work. I want to work with teenagers who will be exiting the system, I want to help them find what their passion are, find them housing and job, so they will succeed. I was supposed to graduate in December of 2021 with my cohort but I had a health issue that I had to regain my strength through OT and PT.

If you can help me reach my goal in anyway like donating an item to be raffled, start a Facebook Fundraiser, make a donation or just help by telling others about my story would be greatly appreciated.

September is Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month. As you may know, 27 years ago, an accident changed my life. Since that spinal cord injury, I have been living life with paralysis. But although I have experienced many TRAGEDIES in life, it also opened many BLESSINGS that I would have ever dreamed of.

 Some of my adventures have included swimming with dolphins, traveling, horseback riding, dancing in my wheelchair, and many more. But my current dream is a little different… I want to graduate from Fresno Pacific University with my bachelor degree in social work and drive my own handicapped accessible van.

 You can be a part of my quest for independence, education, and mobility!!

 I am partnered with a 501(c)(3) nonprofit called Help Hope Live (@helphopeliveorg). They verify my medical condition and manage all funds raised in my honor. Donations are tax deductible, responsibly managed, and cover only medical and related costs.

 I am just $11,867 away from reaching my fundraising goal for an accessible van!!!
