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 [...]

HOPE In and Out of the Exam Room

HOPE is blessed, through the support of our partners, to serve men and women in our city holistically...mind, body, and spirit. One of the ways we are able to meet the needs of our patients outside of the exam room is through parenting education. Through our education program we are able to equip, mentor, and [...]

The One that is Hope

The Christmas story clearly shows that the hope of the universe is a person. Hope was what the angels sang about. Hope lay in the manger. Hope caused Mary to wonder in her heart. It was hope the shepherds came to worship. Hope was presented with gifts from the Magi who had traveled so far. [...]

Grateful

Last week we invited volunteers back to HOPE to celebrate 20 years of service in Knoxville. We made gift bags, provided cookies and cake, and offered tours of the building for those that hadn’t visited in a while. The impact HOPE has had on over 25,000 patients would never have happened without the countless sacrificial [...]

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 [...]

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. We love mom and baby before, during, and after the [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]
