Have you been looking for a way to support H.O.P.E.’s mission, but aren’t sure how to get involved? Well, you’re in luck! On May 19, we have the perfect opportunity for you to take the first step in partnering with us — the Auctions Speak Louder Than Words event!

Auctions Speak Louder Than Words is a silent auction where you get the chance to support H.O.P.E.’s program and participants. By bidding for high-end gifts and services, you can personally partner with us to impact and empower low-income single parents, helping them pursue their degree and a life of success and self-sufficiency.

“This year we have 15 single parents graduating,” Kenita Smith, H.O.P.E. Inc.’s founder, says. “In the last two years, most of them would have had to drop out if H.O.P.E. supporters were not there to help them through the pandemic and rising prices. 50% of our single parents lost their jobs or had their hours reduced, while many of them almost faced eviction and could barely feed their families due to the rocket-high food prices. When we say our donors give HOPE, they do!”

Our goal is to have a meaningful and lasting impact in our community’s families. Through your participation and support, you are not only helping single parents achieve their dreams. You are helping us remove barriers and ease financial burdens that will impact the lives of generations to come!

The auction will take place 100% online, so you can join the fun from the comfort of your home! Bidding will begin at 12 a.m. EDT and end at 5 p.m. EDT.

“The small decision you make to participate in this silent auction matters!” Kenita says. “It ensures that more single parents have the opportunity for higher education, equality, and financial stability. Plus, you get some pretty cool stuff too!
