About Hope Grove

In partnership with local nonprofits and professionals, Hope Grove Dunedin hosts a community focused space for entrepreneurs to support one another through mentorships, workspace and workshops.

We also support individuals in every day mental health maintenance through peer led/therapist led support groups, social groups and professionally guided classes.

Our Story

Hope Grove sprouted out of personal need from the founder, Heather Miniello, to build a village/support network for herself as a newly single mother and solo small business owner. She saw the same needs for support in her immediate community of Dunedin and circle of friends.

Hope Grove aims to fill a large gap in the mental health and small business support for our community, where we believe so much more support is needed! The need is great but the ability to fill that need is so possible with just a few people stepping up to lead, volunteer and support each other.

We see a strong need for everyday mental health support, small business incubation, social/emotional education, holistic wellness, and commUNTIY building.
