DULUTH — Since its formation in 2009, Helping Other People Be Empowered, an up-and-coming nonprofit based in Duluth, has grown faster than its founder imagined.
“We went from $11,000 the year before in donations to having two foundation grants and tripling our revenue,” founder Kenita Pierce-Lewis said about 2013. “Before I knew it, I received $50,000 from them and then grants started pouring into our organization.”
