After meeting with two adopted children during a trip back from vacation in Mississippi in 1997, [10] Ward has decided to meet a wider need for abused and neglected children by initiating and funding a portion of creating an emergency shelter for those waiting in foster care. Set on 30 hectares (120,000 m2) property once used as a Masonic orphanage owned and operated the Village Hope for Children has opened in the hometown of Meridian in the district in January 2002 and is intended as a pilot for a national network similar shelters. Hope Village currently has a capacity of 44 residents and serves an average of 200 children per year [11].

A portion of the business district of the 22nd Avenue in Meridian (from 6th Street to the interchange of Interstate 20) was named “Sela Ward Parkway” in honor of Ward [12].
