Dear Friend of HOPE

It is hard to believe I am preparing to begin my fourth year with HOPE, and HOPE is preparing to start its twenty-second year of operation here in Knoxville. We have witnessed a lot of change since 1997, but HOPE’s focus and mission of service has weathered every storm and maintained its impact on our [...]

Eight Hours and Eighteen Baby Showers

This past week, we were fortunate enough to host 18 baby showers for first-time moms at HOPE. For eight hours, we welcomed moms, dads, families, and friends inside our walls to celebrate the arrival of a little boy or little girl. This is nothing new at HOPE as we host baby showers every quarter, but [...]
