At the end of a long day, don’t you love coming home to a warm, comfortable space to relax?
But what if you’re a kid who’s been removed from home due to abuse or neglect? Or been kicked out by your family?
Hope Center for Children is here to provide children and youth with a safe place to land.
They have two residential programs for youth in foster care and one for young men and women ages 16-21 who have no safe place to live as they transition into adulthood. These programs are their temporary homes and they aim to make them as comforting as possible.
You can help ensure the comfort and well-being of the youth residents during the winter season and throughout the year by donating to HCFC on Giving Tuesday! All of the gifts made during the Giving Tuesday campaign will go toward replacing old HVAC units in our residential homes. Every contribution, no matter how small, can significantly impact and help create a warm, home-like space for the youth residents. Each HVAC unit costs $12,000 and one unit for each home needs to be updated, totaling $36,000. Although this is a lot, many small gifts make a huge collective impact.
Be sure to save the date November 28, 2023, for #GivingTuesday and help give comfort and hope to children in foster care! It’s a great opportunity for individuals and communities to unite and support nonprofits like Hope Center for Children.
