Donation for Hope Outreach Center
Imagine this is your family.
Suddenly, this beautiful family, teetering on the brink of poverty, plunges deeply into its midst when Dad is laid off. How could this happen when he’s worked for this company for years?
Your savings help you survive while you search frantically for a new job. Hope begins to fade. There are few jobs available and so many looking for work. Terror grabs hold of you as you run out of money.
This is what it feels like to be poor. The terror of physical insecurity gnaws at your gut. You feel like a failure because your children cry out with hunger and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Fortunately for this family, they found HOPE Outreach Center where they received food, encouragement, and referrals to help them get back on their feet. HOPE helped them repair their trailer by connecting them to refurbishing programs offered by other agencies.
We’re happy to report that both parents have found work again. The bad news is that together they now earn less than Dad earned at his previous job. Yet, they are grateful for the blessing of the love and care they received at HOPE.
