As we write this letter, one of us is preparing to leave the Hope Center as its long-time Executive while the other prepares to assume leadership as the Board Chair. Sally is looking back with gratitude to a community of committed partners, including our donors, whose generosity was pivotal in the establishment of comprehensive services for area victims.
Francesco, as the incoming Board Chair, certainly has the more difficult task. He and other board members, mindful that the agency assisted 1,309 survivors in the last year alone, must ensure that critical services remain, and that we are ready to meet emerging challenges in planning for the future.
We ask you to consider a donation to the Hope Center’s 2021 Annual Appeal, with undesignated proceeds used to support our most costly service, shelter. We are grateful to our long-term supporters, as well as those who contribute when they can and, of course, we welcome new donors. We also invite you to contact us if you would like to explore volunteer opportunities at the Hope Center as together we begin another chapter in the agency’s history. Though the name has changed, our mission remains the same.
You can also make a contribution by phone or mail. Please call 570.622.3991 or make check out to “Hope Center” and mail to:
