MAKE 2020 A YEAR OF HOPE
There is still time to give.
Uncertainty. That seems to sum up 2020.
At Hillcrest Hope, we have seen struggling families enter our program who are desperately seeking some solace and certainty. We are grateful that you are providing comfort to our families. Your support offers a bed for rest, food on the table, and a safe space out of the elements. You are giving families a home so they can create a second chance. Carina and her daughters found a home at Hillcrest Hope. Now, they are starting a new beginning. These are lives that you have touched by supporting Hillcrest Hope.
For Carina’s safety and the safety of her four daughters, Carina left Chicago, and the only life she knew. When the five of them arrived at her grandmother’s doorstep, her grandmother knew exactly where they needed to be.
“I was going through a hard time and here’s a program willing to open their doors and give us a bed to sleep on and food in the fridge. I went from being scared to having a safe apartment, a safe home for me and my four daughters…. I used to feel alone. I don’t feel alone anymore…thanks to Hillcrest Hope.”
– Carina –
Carina’s story is just one example of the life-changing impact you make by supporting Hillcrest Hope Programs. Today, Carina has an apartment of her own, her girls are thriving in school and she has a great new career. Carina is currently saving for a down-payment and plans to purchase her first home in 2021.
Because of you, real change is happening in the lives of Hillcrest Hope families every day!
In the past 12 months, your support has allowed Hillcrest Hope to serve 147 households. During that time, those families resolved $272,082 in debt and saved $197,304.
Your generosity provides families with the support and resources necessary to make a positive and permanent change in their lives. What you give goes far beyond dollars. You provide education and housing. You give hope to those that have lost all hope. You give love to those that are finding it hard to love themselves. You provide a fresh start and a new beginning.
