In 1998, Karen Lynn-Chlup planted the seed of Whispers of Hope as an act of love and devotion, with the goal of empowering people who have cerebral palsy and learning disabilities, as well as their families and friends. Beyond those limits, it is meant to encourage everyone in this journey that we call life.
Originating from a long-time desire and need to encourage, comfort, cheer, and motivate, Whispers of Hope is the place where Karen shares her inspiring life story with the disabled community and with the entire world.
When you have a disability support specialist like Karen on your side, frustration and fear dissipate, and you get a strong "I can" attitude. Clients with disabilities thrive on her warmth and humor as they push against limitations to reach their own goals. Families discover new resources and learn to support their loved one in ways that empower and develop self-sufficient strengths.
When Karen keynotes and leads classes at conferences, people come away motivated to become their own heroes and to advocate for a world that is accepting and open to all. Organizations that partner with Karen as a special needs advocate gain clear insight into the needs of people with disabilities and how to make meaningful changes. Let Karen show you just how much is possible. As she says, "If I can do it, you can do it, too!"
