Just Give Me the Abortion Pills

Just give me the abortion pills… These six words spoken by Jerryka, thankfully, were not the end of her journey. Instead, these six words were just the beginning. You see, Jerryka came to HOPE scared and uncertain of her future. A future planned, thought out, and within her grasp that didn’t involve an exam room [...]

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 [...]

We recently [...]

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.

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 [...]
