2017 Spring Fling – April 8th

We had a great time Saturday, April 8, 2017  at Petty’s Meats on Babcock Street.  Jay at Petty’s was generous and a wonderful host.  We raised over $1,500 to support the mission of providing homes to homeless families with children.

 

Special Thanks goes out to Johnny Debt Prestage.

His music was perfect for this outside family get together. Even the kids got a chance to win prizes.  Plan to come join us for a fun “Run for Hope” at the Church at Viera on September 23rd.

Fall Gala – Enchanted Garden

Fall Gala – Enchanted Garden

The Fall Gala, Enchanted Garden was a great success.  The food was wonderful, the venue was beautiful.  Fairies were every where.  Events like a major fundraiser like this are crucial to mission success.  As a non profit, we depend on public funds to keep our mission going.  “Hope with Dignity” is not possible without the generosity of the community.  Our thanks goes out to all who helped organize the event, sponsor it, and attend it.  Can’t wait till this coming fall to have our next fun event.

Enough thanks can not be given to the many volunteers and uncountable hours that they have worked.  From fixing a broken appliance to trimming the hedge, volunteers are a life line for Community of Hope.  We depend on them to be able to respond to many of the needs of our families.  Thanks and thanks again.

A home is more than a house.  It is a place for children to be safe and play.  Getting outside and getting exercise is essential to a child’s growth and well being.  We are thankful to all the volunteers who have helped Community of Hope provide and maintain playgrounds.  You have blessed our children.

Breakfast with Santa

Breakfast with Santa

Christmas is a special time.  As part of our outreach we provide more than just gifts for Christmas.  We provide a sense of community and relationship.  Our families we able to go to Breakfast with Santa at the Avenues in Viera as part of their holiday celebrations.  It was great to see the families share the blessings of Christmas together.   Thanks to Mike and Becky at 4 C’s Nursery for making this event possible.

Never too young to learn…

Never too young to learn…

Community of Hope held a special luncheon event for our families.  It was focused on a book fair for the children in all our programs.  Reading is a key to academic success and the more you read the better you are at it.  In addition to getting books, the children got a lesson in financial planning.  Yes – financial planning.  It centered on a book about a child saving up to buy a soccer ball. Each child got a piggy bank with a section for saving, spending and giving.  Thanks to Thrivent Financial for their kind support.
