What Happens When a Patient’s Water Breaks the Morning of Her Baby Shower? We Move the Baby Shower to the Delivery Room!

As many of you know, HOPE provides roughly 50 to 60 baby showers every single year. These showers are a consistent highlight to our year as we get to experience the love of a mother for her child, the outpouring of support from our community, and the impact love has on broken situations. We recently [...]

The Work Continues

This week I made the trip to Washington D.C. to join over a thousand pregnancy center workers for a conference with Care Net aimed at bettering our work across this country. This week we will worship, network, learn, and celebrate as we reflect on the past and look forward to the future of the life [...]

A Face to a Gift

Last week we came together to celebrate 20 years of HOPE. We were blessed to reconnect with past patients, volunteers, and staff members to stand for life. I could walk you through the entire night but I would rather focus on a particular segment of the night where a former patient shared her story with [...]

Another Mom and Baby Loved

Every year, HOPE, with your help, throws over 50 baby showers for first-time moms. These moms have participated in parenting classes and mentoring, and are well on their way to providing for their child. These baby showers point to the truth of what we do.

In Her Own Words

Every year we produce, with the help of some pretty talented artists and photographers, a Year End booklet to share with you. These booklets tell the story of HOPE. They allow you to get a glimpse of the impact that your dollars, prayers, and time are having on this community. This year’s theme, “A Thrill [...]

Because You Give

Today is “Giving Tuesday” and we are currently in the middle of our Year-End fundraising campaign. Fundraising is a must in our line of work, but, as I have said before, fundraising is not our goal; it is simply a vehicle used to reach our goal. Non-profit work, by nature, requires your gifts. We could [...]

Now What

The seemingly never ending election has finally reached its culmination. Late tonight or early tomorrow we will be introduced to our 45th President. The feelings of the electorate will be mixed…some will celebrate while others feel a sense of disappointment. The two major political parties will go into spin mode and we will hear their [...]

A Vehicle

Non-profits must fundraise to meet their budgets. HOPE is no different. We offer all of our services at no cost to our patients and provide roughly $550,000 worth of services every single year for men and women in this community. Fundraising, however, is simply a vehicle. It is not our end goal or motivation. Instead, [...]

22

Many of you are well aware that HOPE isn’t your typical medical clinic. We celebrate our medical expertise and the services we are able to offer, but this is not all we do. We, thankfully, are able to serve our patients holistically…mind, body, and spirit. We understand that many of our patients’ needs go far [...]

Looking Forward

The first post of the New Year is a difficult one. Should I reflect on the past year? Should I discuss our year-end fundraising efforts? Should I tell a story? Should I provide statistics? Should I discuss what is to come? I find it impossible to only focus on one thing. I could devote the [...]
