EVENTS? YES, We’ve got ‘em!

A large part of sustaining any nonprofit is fundraising. We write grants, send out appeals and a variety of other things to raise money in order to continue to offer services. It’s a balancing act. In an effort to make it a bit more fun and celebrate with our supporters, we host a lot of events at Hope House. Some are completely our own doing; others are generously put together by other people for our benefit. In any case, we have SEVERAL coming up—something for everyone. And, although the word event conjures up images of fun, frivolity and a party-like atmosphere, it is serious business for us and represents nearly 15% of our overall annual budget. They are good fun! Join us and have fun while helping us all at the same time!
