About RADical Hope
Pam and Phil Martin established RADical Hope in honor of their son, Chris, who died by suicide in the Fall of 2017. Like many young people today, Chris experienced periods of profound emotional isolation and lacked the proper opportunities to express his struggles. Chris’s experience is at the core of the RADical Hope mission. We develop, identify and partner with frontline engagement programs that deliver on our mission priorities: Connectivity, Engagement, Empowerment. RADical Hope is committed to improving the lives and futures of young adults by strengthening connections and building resilience.
“Our mission is to break the grip of emotional isolation that is killing our young people. We do this by expanding and delivering measurable, science-based programs that fill critical gaps and equip America’s youth with the skills they need to thrive.”
-Pam Martin, RADical Hope Co-Founder
