You don’t know my story….
My name is Marion and I am the Treasurer on the Board of H.O.P.E, Inc. Most of you don’t know my personal story, but I would like to share it with you today.
I became a mother at the young age of 17, which could have made me a statistic, and not only a statistic but not such a positive one. So many reports don’t paint teen mother’s in successful light, but through the grace of God and my family’s love and support, I was able to beat the odds. I finished high school, my bachelor’s degree, and MBA all before the age of 30
I share this because I know how important it is to complete a college degree as a single parent first hand, which is why I joined HOPE Inc.’s Board in 2015. The organization’s mission of helping single parents complete their college degrees resonated with me, and I personally desire to help other single parents complete their college degrees as I did.
Today, we both can do just that by clicking here today,
Thank you in advance for allowing more single parents to make it as I did!
Board of Director, Treasurer

We don’t just help single mothers…
Did you realize that your donations don’t just support single mothers in need, but they help single fathers who are often forgotten about in our society?
The number of young men with sole custody of their children while attending college is larger than many of us believe. Often times, support services offered by single parent organizations are not directed at single fathers, and they are often turned away when they need help the most.
But not so with H.O.P.E. Your support actually makes sure that all single parents working towards a college degree have a chance to get out of poverty.
Watch this 60-minute video of how you have helped one young man not give up!
Your donation this GA Gives Day will help us reach our $1,000 goal to make sure that one single parent keeps going like Shakar is able to because of your help. Although this campaign supports a single mom, her story resonates with Shakar and she will ultimately be affected by what you decide to do in 1 more day!

We’re counting on you!
