Abbey's Hope, Safer Pools. Safer Kids.

Abbey’s Hope is a charitable organization whose mission is “Safer Pools. Safer Kids.”  It was formed in honor of Abigail Rose Taylor.

Abigail, or Abbey as her family called her, was disemboweled by the suction from an uncovered pool drain. Thankfully she survived, but she was never the same again. She was a strong, incredible girl who brought joy to everyone around her. Tragically she passed away March 20, 2008. Her family made a promise to Abbey, “to make sure [that] kind of injury never happens again.” And so, Abbey’s Hope was created in her honor.

Abbey’s Hope works “tirelessly toward a world with safer pools by providing education and advocating for comprehensive safety standards for all pools.”
