3-weeks ago, the country watched the Bill and Adair Grommesh family get a new home, but another benefit from the show has been interest in the non-profit group: Hope Inc.

More than a dozen families from around the country now want to start their own "HOPES."

ADAIR GROMMESHHOPE Inc.: “And most of them are moms and dads that are in the same situation we were in. No money to start, but we have a child that doesn't have anywhere near them like in Texas, 6 hours away.”

After a big sled hockey weekend last Saturday, the athletes of HOPE Inc. this weekend are going downhill skiing.
