In Just One Week!
In just one week…
In one week, the race will be on to help one single mother complete her last semester of college. You may say, we’re always helping a single mother finish college, that’s what we do when we give to HOPE, what makes this situation different?
Destiny has been with us for a little over two years and has hit several snags in the last three months. Her car broke down, while she still owed. Her employer cut her hours at work. She found out that her son has been having trouble in school, AND then after all of that, her landlord has decided not to renew her lease so she has to find new housing. All of that has threatened her ability to finish her last semester in college, and she needs a little more help from us than usual.
This mother has been diligent, a great saver, and is an overall great human being. Yet life happens, and sometimes there’s no one to help you through the hard times. BUT NOT IN HER CASE. You’ve worked hard to make sure that people like Destiny accomplish their academic goals. We’re hoping that you’ll make sure she makes it over the graduation stage.
As we mentioned last week, we have been chosen to participate in the Colca-Cola Women’s Empowerment Challenge, which means that Coca-Cola will match all funds raised through our Ga Gives campaign. Such AWESOME news! #CocaColaEmpowersWomen
Help us raise $1,000 to show Destiny she’s not alone! Your gift will be matched and do more than you can imagine for this single family of 3.

We’re 10-Years Old Today!
Today, we turned 10-years old!
You did it! You got us to this wonderful milestone! It’s amazing what you have allowed us to accomplish. Ten years ago, I had no nonprofit experience, no donors, and no grants, but I did have a program idea and a plan.
I didn’t know who would believe in my vision for H.O.P.E, Inc., or if we would be able to accomplish all the big ideas we had. BUT YOU DID!
Back then, what we are doing today, felt almost light-years away. Yet, they say if you dream big, you’ll exceed your wildest expectations. Many sacrifices were made to get this organization to where it is today, but it was so worth it!
We hope you can say that what you have contributed to, focused on, or been a part of over the past ten years makes you feel the same way.
A ten-year existence for a nonprofit and any business is a pretty big deal. A decade later, you have provided services for a total of 190 people! That’s 63 single parents and 127 children! Want to see a snapshot of accomplishments, failures, success, and growth? Click here to view it.
We’re celebrating and we want you to join us, We’ll have a wonderful 10-year celebration on December 8, 2019, at 5pm, at the Norcross Community Center to honor 10 critical people, organizations, and/or foundations that helped us give HOPE, some of you may have received an invitation in the mail if you’ve given to our cause before, but you are ALL welcomed. Seats are limited so please register for your free ticket by clicking here to say you’ll be there.
We hope you will continue to take this journey with us, and help us change lives for
