Mission A Place Called Hope (APCH) is a Raptor Rehabilitation and Education Center made up of trained Wildlife Rehabilitators and volunteers who are dedicated to the Preservation of Wildlife.  Our goal is to rescue, re-nest, rehabilitate, and release wild Birds of Prey who have become injured, orphaned or ill with the intention of returning them to the wild after a brief stay at our Center. Those who can not return, due to their injuries often become ambassadors or faculty staff members who then help us to teach the public through educational presentations how to better co-exist with wildlife within one's very own backyard. 
Background
A Place Called Hope, Inc., founded in 2007 is an all volunteer based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that specializes in the rescue and care of injured, orphaned or sick Birds of Prey plus within the State of CT. We rescue, rehabilitate, re-nest and release birds as well as educate the public on ways to better co-exist with all wildlife one might encounter within their very own backyard. Our primary mission is to preserve wildlife for the future. We answer to distress calls in regards to injured, orphaned or sick birds within our State with the intention of fixing the problem and returning the bird back to the environment whenever possible. Some do not make it back and often become part of our educational Faculty Staff with a new role in life as an ambassador for its own kind. Through educational presentations, these birds help us to teach the public simple ways to lessen common conflicts often encountered with wildlife. Since 98% of the injuries we see are related to mankind, we feel it is one of our top priorities to help the public understand how to lessen the impact we as humans are having on our wildlife and ultimately our planet.  We offer our presentations within our State and share up to four bird ambassadors in a one hour program targeting all ages. We care for any species of bird but our specialty as well as our Centers design is geared towards Birds of Prey. We rescue birds all over our State from vehicle collisions, building entrapments, chicken coop entrapments, garbage entanglements, cat or dog attacks, secondary poisoning, intentional harm or shootings, window collisions and the 2% that come down from natural causes with the intention of returning the bird to the natural environment after a brief stay at our facility. On average, we cater to between 400 - 500 birds annually. We also tackle re-nesting projects every Spring for nest fall victims since we feel birds are best raised by birds and understand that humans can not possibly raise a wild bird successfully for the ultimate goal of freedom. Some of these projects require our climber to go up 85 feet into a tree to return the nestling so the parents can resume care. We have had a 100% success rate since starting this endeavor of re-nesting in 2005.
 
Impact
In 2017 A Place Called Hope saw over 600 Birds at our Center. That's more than the 526 of 2016. Each year these numbers inevitably increase as we persist in answering to the unique demand for our services. We continuously expand our facility to accommodate the rotations and strive to provide top quality care and housing. 
In 2017 we put 15 baby Birds of Prey back into their nest structures after becoming nest fall victims. Each bird put back has the potential of creating 100's of offspring should it survive thus increasing the species and helping in the preservation of its own kind. Birds are best raised by birds and our efforts to return them to their parents is one of our themes in educating the public should they find fallen bird babies.
In 2017 APCH offered 102 offsite presentations and 225 onsite tours and attended multiple fairs and festivals in order to spread our message and mission.  In 2018 we would like to see an increase of 30% in the numbers of presentations and tours we offer to the public. We would also like to see our acquisition started for a non-releasable Golden Eagle to join our Faculty Staff of birds for public programming. We would also like to solidify logistics and plans to start fundraising for a special physical therapy Flight Muse to offer rehabilitation cases a space for continuous flight to condition for release. This octagon building measures a minimum of 40 x 60 and will be the most expensive project we have tackled thus far. So far we estimate the cost to be $100,000.  This structure is critical to the conditioning stage of sending these birds back to freedom with the proper strength and stamina required to be free. In 2018, we would like to accomplish a better parking area to accommodate visitors. We would also like to have researched the possibility and logistics of a composting bathroom to offer the public instead of having to open up the private home on the property.  Of course all of this will happen simultaneously with the reconstruction of an old watershed building into a Hospital Critical Care Ward.
 
Needs
1. Maintenance Volunteers; Currently, we hold a cleaning Volunteer Day once a week. We need to find a way to incorporate a separate Volunteer Day to manage maintenance needs outside of routine cleaning.
2. Under-age Volunteers; We stopped taking kids under 16 due to the lack of a Volunteer Coordinator for Kids. We need an adult willing to be in charge of a Volunteer Day specific to kids that can manage simple projects on site outside of aviary structures.
3. Parking Lot; we run into having to limit the amount of attendees to any onsite activity due to a parking issue.
4. Public Bathroom; there is currently no bathroom other than the private residence belonging to Co-Founders. This is challenging with household dogs and cats and strangers entering a private home unattended.
5. Fundraising Events; we need more events per year but must balance full time job work schedules. At some point, President Christine Cummings will need to work for APCH full time and be compensated for her time with a small paycheck. APCH is limited until this transition can physically take place.  
CEO Statement As President and Co-Founder of A Place Called Hope, Inc. it is my utmost priority to carry out our mission of Preserving Wildlife for the Future. Besides the obvious, caring for the numerous rehab patients we cater to, I find that reaching the public through educational opportunities helps us to achieve our mission in regards to preserving wildlife for the future. For any individual who gets to be up close to one of our magnificent ambassadors they also get to experience a truly unique and memorable moment. This experience is further enhanced especially when the hawk, falcon, owl or eagle stares into their eyes. This kind of connection helps us to convince the public that the wildlife and the environment truly matter. Each program bird tells a story of how it came to be in our care which amplifies our message of how to lessen conflicts so that we may better co-exist with one another. It used to be that we were told to "let nature take its course" and just remain uninvolved to any wild animal crisis. Since 98% of the injuries and distress calls we answer to are related to mankind, we stress that it is no longer acceptable to do nothing. We are the cause to the destruction and decline of our environment and our wildlife so it is time to intervene. It is up to us to become a part of the solution by doing simple things to help limit common negative conflicts. For example, cutting up six pack ring holders, picking up garbage that may cause entanglements, eliminating the use of rodenticides, using ultra violet light markers on glass to eliminate window strikes, stopping ceremonial releases of balloons, stopping people from discarding cigarette butts, stressing recycling or re-use of single use plastics, or suggesting alternative containers such as bags or bottles. Together we can make a difference no matter what age we are. A Place Called Hope was founded in 2007 and we are proud to look back and see the difference we have made for the thousands of birds we have rescued and the millions of people we have addressed. We look forward to our Future and will no doubt continue onward with the same dedication as we had when we first developed this organization. 
Board Chair Statement
"Follow your Bliss" is what my very own father told me while I was growing up. Find your "passion" and make it your life. There is no better way to exist than to love what you are working for. These birds are my passion, my life, and my 100%. I like to tell people that we eat, sleep and breathe what we are doing with this nonprofit. If just being in each birds presence were not enough, having the opportunity to rescue and actually save one of these birds is an additional incredible honor. To see one return to freedom is the best gift for all the hard work involved in the rescue and rehabilitation process. Although not all make it home, even helping those that are suffering transition is another honor. We call it a "gift" when there is no alternative and the bird must be euthanized. Having a Faculty Staff of Birds for public programming and on site display is also a joy. Caring for these beings is what we want to do despite the time and effort involved 24 hours a day 365 days per year no matter what the weather is. Our dedication to what we are doing shows whenever a person gets to come out for a tour to meet the birds on site and truly understand what it is we are working so hard for. My heart is full at any given time because I know I am following my Bliss. 
There are plenty of challenges. Being "on call" is how we exist. There is no holiday, birthday, vacation that is not interrupted with a wildlife concern. There is no day off to just relax. Chores are constant. It is not easy to go away even for one day, which would drive most people crazy. When we do travel, it can't be far or for long and we must involve a crew of volunteers to manage the Center in our absence. Having a camera system helps us to check in and monitor but in my own personal case, coming home is the best part of vacation to me. Weather can be a real challenge. Winters in CT can be quite brutal, but that does not mean we can hibernate and neglect the care of our feathered friends. Snow removal must happen each snow fall and since we currently have over 12,000 square feet of aviary structures, there are plenty of places that must be shoveled including rooftops, trails to and from, inside each aviary and the roadway down to the aviaries.  The biggest challenge I personally face is the balance between the nonprofit and the day job. In order for APCH to grow to the next level which includes making us more available for more public and school programming, I am seeing the necessity for me to leave my day job. As terrifying as this thought is, my day job is suffering due to my dedication and focus on the organization and APCH is affected by my job schedule. Our accountant says I am allowed to be financially compensated for the work I do, but since the very start, I have been proud to be a volunteer for this unpaid profession. For the sake of our future, my time must shift and my availability must expand to match the demand for not only programming, but rescues, releases, and rehabilitation. Our Board is in agreement that this transition is inevitable and overdue. I am proud to run this nonprofit and feel that we have been beneficial to the wildlife we cater to as well as the public we reach out to. Our success continues as we look forward to the future.

We answer to wildlife crisis calls across the entire state of Connecticut. We share Educational Presentations across the entire state of Connecticut. Our primary event footprint is Middlesex and New Haven County for fundraising events, fairs and festivals but we cover and are available to the entire state.
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments A Place Called Hope only gets better with age. As we grow and learn, we see more successes in our overall abilities to care for the injured, orphaned and sick birds we take in. This is party due to the fact that our Center is becoming more capable to handle the demand. We have more aviary space to accommodate patients and more volunteers actively involved helping us to do all we do.  Our audience continues to grow as well and our bird presentations are improving with experience. Being able to reach the public to share ways we can all lessen conflicts with wildlife is critical to our mission. As President and Co-Founder of this organization, I am still inspired daily to continue devoting my time and my heart to our goals. It never gets old.
Programs
Description A Place Called Hope is a Rehabilitation Center. We cater to injured, orphaned or sick wild birds in the State of CT. We rescue many from the all too common conflicts with humans. Things like vehicle collisions, habitat destruction, window collisions, dog or cat attacks, garbage entanglements, secondary poisoning, intentional harm, building entrapments, etc. with the goal of fixing the problem and returning the bird(s) back to the wild. Rehabilitation takes place at the Center as each patient is individually assessed and treated for their injuries or condition. Some cases take many months to heal while others only a few days. Charges start out in playpens in our Critical Care Ward and eventually graduate to an outdoor Step Down Unit. Eventually the patient joins its own kind in a specialized aviary space to regain abilities prior to returning home. Veterinary assistance is utilized for cases requiring surgical procedures, x-rays or specialized blood work or medications. Springtime we see many baby birds fall from their nests so APCH specializes in returning birds back to their parents in man-made nest alternatives. Birds are best raised by birds so we strive to put them back immediately as long as nest fall victims are not injured. Ultimately, our rehabilitation goal is to release or return a bird back to its natural environment. So APCH rescues, re-nests, rehabilitates, and releases birds back to the wild whenever possible. For those who can not return, depending on the bird, it may stay at our Center to become part of our Educational Crew.

Description

EDUCATION; In order to preserve wildlife, we must instill a stewardship towards the environment and its inhabitants. Some of our rescued birds are not capable of returning to the wild but have the proper disposition to become ambassadors for their species. With traveling Birds of Prey, our presentations make it an up close and personal experience. We find that when a person gets to stare into the eyes of a wild bird, they become more connected and in return want to help lessen common conflicts we as humans impose on all wildlife. 


Live Birds of Prey Presentations include 2 or 4 birds - offers a unique up close encounter to the public as they learn about each species and ways to help preserve them.

Raptor Rescue/Transport Seminars - teaches interested individuals how to safely rescue and transport to rehabilitation centers in our State. Gives us more of our time to treat cases if we have help rescuing them.

Raptor Intake Seminars for Vet Techs or Rehabilitators - offers individuals ways to better handle assessing and treating injuries or illness safely.

Fundraising Events - educates the public about our cause and offers live experiences with our Faculty Bird Staff.

Pick It Up environmental clean up efforts - hands on teams tackle clean up projects at local parks, beaches, etc.

Grace Krick - Vice President
The mission of APCH aligns with my beliefs, goals, hopes and what is important to me overall. I am proud to be a part of this organization and feel privileged to work alongside others who share like values. We face many challenges. Time management is certainly one. Being able to reach all that need our care in a timely manner is critical to what we strive to do. The Political climate is uncertain for the planet resulting in resistance to our cause. Finances and funding are getting harder to obtain. Cost for supplies, building and maintenance, food and medical care only increase with each year. With challenges come opportunities. We are meeting these challenges in many different ways. Training interested community members to help rescue and transport sick or injured birds in a timely manner. Continued educational efforts especially geared towards children and the young who will one day be in charge of our planet. We are becoming more proactive in getting to know our representatives and making them aware of how we feel about issues that affect our wildlife and environment. We address the financial concerns by planning and organizing more Fundraisers, donations, seeking new grant sources, educational programming and teaching seminars. As a part of this mission, I personally feel that I am doing my part in making a difference. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Experience Christine Cummings is the Founder and President of APCH. I have worked with animals my entire life as caretaker, animal technician, wildlife rehabilitator, and had attended College for a Bachelor of Arts degree as well as a degree in Art Education. Teaching is important to me since I believe children are our future. Despite my training, my need to continue to work with animals was still my priority so I decided to open my own business in my young twenties. I have owned and operated my own Professional Dog/Cat Grooming Business since 1984 and have been a licensed wildlife rehabilitator since 2005. Running and operating my own professional business has helped me to develop the necessary skills to run and operate this non-profit organization. Having a College Education has helped to prepare me for the clerical and organizational skills required for such an endeavor. My teaching background has pulled it all together in the realm of public presentations. I have come full circle in the ability to work with animals, both domestic and wild as well as educate the public both young and old. I am doing what I was born to do, as I follow my bliss and strive to make a difference for the animals I cater to.

Ranger Russ Miller - Board Member -
I have been an environmental educator for over 20 years and am the Director of Meigs Point Nature Center and it is for this reason that I volunteer as a board member of APCH. I believe education is the strongest resource available to protect and preserve the natural world. Educational programs offered by APCH are an excellent way for the public to understand and appreciate Raptors and wildlife. This knowledge can then be a direct conduit to save these magnificent birds when injured. Native species have many challenges to survive in the wild without the obstacles presented by human contact. With more cars on our roads every year the number of injuries caused by human contact also increases. APCH has the challenge of correcting the imbalance caused by these direct and indirect contacts. The increase puts a strain on an all volunteer organization. APCH has been increasing seminars to train more responders to transport with injured wildlife. With a mission based on the preservation of wildlife, APCH is doing its part.

I began volunteering in 2009 and was immediately impressed with the commitment that APCH made to the preservation of wildlife. There is never a situation too far, too high or too impossible when it comes to rescuing a bird in trouble. There is always an attempt made. I joined the Board of Directors in 2010 and have been actively involved in every aspect of the organization ever since. It never gets old. I feel honored to be a part of this special group of people and the amazing work that we do. In the almost nine years I have been involved I have seen incredible growth with many plans for continuing projects in the future. We've come a long way yet there are still many things that need to be done. Some of those projects include; Golden Eagle Aviary, Parking Lot, Composting Bathroom, Flight Conditioning Building and an Education Center. APCH has gained an enormous following and a reputation for going to great lengths to help injured birds. We do programs, seminars, fundraisers all around the State to help us in our efforts to do so. We have big dreams. As we continue to grow, we see a need to enlist more people with the love of nature to help us achieve these dreams.

For 2017 first quarter, our expense was greater at $25,344.69 because of our property tax bill equaling $3901.61 and an unexpected tree emergency costing us $4000 to remedy. We are also still under construction and the first quarter in labor alone was $6,603 not including supplies/materials.  
 
Ned Hurle - Board Member -
I spent my professional career (35 years) in the transportation/environmental field. I know well the stress that humans, in a small urbanized state, place upon wildlife. In retirement, I can give back time and effort to assist, in real time, the protection and stewardship of raptors in need. Through volunteer and board work I can further the education of public citizens, especially the next generation, in the value that these important species have to our human environment. I am also gratified when a youngster, upon seeing a raptor in all of its glory for the first time, goes home with a sense of wonder at being so close to a vibrant, wild creature. This child will, most likely, have a greater appreciation of how raptors fit into our overall environment. I firmly believe that an educated populace will result in a more caring and environmentally responsible society. The challenges are many and sometimes daunting. They include developing a reliable and sustainable source of funding for capital improvements, infrastructure maintenance, and program delivery. While our core constituency is generous in providing donations, it is not an overly wealthy community. Consequently, APCH has begun to search out and engage more long term funding opportunities such as working with larger community and environmental foundations to hopefully secure a more robust funding stream. The Board is dedicated to networking with similar organizations to further this goal. This is a work in progress and refinements in approaches will evolve. Another challenge is expanding our use of our very dedicated volunteers and our overall "environmental community", and to do this as efficiently as possible. Progress in this is evident in updating the web site to be more user friendly by the volunteer staff. Cross training of volunteers to provide broader expertise has also increased in 2016/17 as had the addition of a mid-week volunteer day to accomplish more focused tasks. The most recent "Rescue and Transport" seminars conducted by APCH have added over 120 additional personnel who now know the basics of safely rescuing and transporting injured raptors to APCH. The establishment of a county or regional response list will greatly streamline this very important "first touch" aspect of helping a bird in need.  Keeping up with the ever increasing demand for rescue, rehabilitation, re-nesting, and release of raptors in need is always a challenge for an all volunteer organization. APCH's programs stress the importance of removing dangers that these birds face in the human environment. A new "Pick It Up" campaign highlights the importance of removing wildlife endangering trash from the environment before it causes damage.
